I have a wide range of IT skills, as I have been doing these types of jobs since the first PC's came out. So I am uniquely qualified to work in the IT industry, I have worked with a number of Operating Systems from Dos, OS/2 , Windows, Novell and Linux. I have a good background in networks and how applications connect and interact with each other..
I have a MCSE, but it is not up to date, however this is only because Microsoft keep on changing the requirements. I do try and keep up with the current technologies and have used a number of major applications and infrastructure components. EG SAS, Oracle, Tomcat, Java, Lotus Notes, Citrix, along with hardware technology: VPN, Cisco, Polycom.
My current role allows me to use a number of technologies. I am currently the main technician supporting the global offices for Standard Life Investments. As such I have setup offices all over the world, the last ones have been in Sydney, Paris and Hong Kong. This means that I have to think ahead and on my feet, getting the staff and team to work in different time zones and ensuring that the job is complete. I also am able to support the office from any location using remote control software, VOIP and video conference.
I also create small applications to help users and systems work together, creating scripts in VB,Perl and powershell. Also I have created a number of simple web apps to allow us to quickly troubleshoot issues so that we can get to the source of an issue quickly.
