Few things in technology, or life for that matter, are static. We live in a highly charged, extremely dynamic period, and it is exciting to be a part of it.
I have truly enjoyed my time as a Gartner analyst working with some of the brightest and most eclectic folks in the industry, but life is about progression and I have accepted the position of CTO at BigFix. The architecture and technology that we have at Bigfix, the scalability that is offered, coupled with the changes in the industry, which I have talked about (here) , (here), and (here), made it clear that this is a great opportunity and one I could not pass up.
There are challenges and risks, as there are with anything worth pursuing, but after performing due diligence it became obvious that these challenges will be overcome. I am honored to be a member of this team, and I have no doubt that 2007 is going to be a very exciting year for us as we move forward to address the changing nature of IT.
I plan to maintain this as my personal blog and continue posting on a fairly regular basis, which I have truly enjoyed.
