IT Consulting

Do you know if your vendors are delivering the right solutions in cost effective manner? Perhaps you want a second opinion or sometimes you just need a technical person on your side of the table. Do you need a strategic partner to help identify the new technologies that could increase efficiency and team collaboration. I could assist on an hourly or retainer basis.

Backups and Disaster recovery

Do you currently have a reliable backup strategy to protect your data? Having started my career in IT operations, backup and recovery have always been the most important part of may daily activities. Backups are useless unless they get tested often. Using a rock solid 3-2-1 backup strategy with monitoring, exception reporting and off-site cloud backup you can rest easy knowing your data is safe.

Enterprise Indoor WiFi

Everybody loves WiFi! Unfortunately in most large SME offices this means a mix of different equipment, networks and uneven coverage. Having to switch between WiFi networks when moving through the building should be a headache of the past. Big corporates have solved this with massively expensive controller based systems, fortunately these technologies have now become very affordable thanks to vendors like ubiquity and Open-MESH. Get in touch with me to find out more.

Application and Network response issues

Application and network issues can be extremely difficult for vendors to troubleshoot and agree on. Often this causes a lot of finger pointing between application, systems and network vendors. Slow applications can also severely impact on staff morale and even leave work undone, or key business processes bypassed. By looking inside the network data packets its possible in most cases to quickly pinpoint the issue. Having an independent third party do this assessment stops the politics and blame.

My Story

I have over 12 years experience in enterprise ICT. My passion is designing new systems, solutions and networks as well as solving difficult problems. In 2013 I completed a Bachelors degree in Bussiness which I think has really changed my focus from delivering an IT system to delivering value to business through technology.

I believe there is a great need for highly skilled IT professionals in the SME space, but budgets and workload don't justify having a professional on payroll.
