A few weeks ago I wrote a piece called How to spot an old IBMer. It was a sort of reminiscence about my early days with IBM but it turned out to be one that really touched a chord with many Big Blue veterans. In fact the response was overwhelming, I have never received more hits or more comments for anything I have written. It was also pleasing that these responses were almost universally positive.
So it’s ironic that today I am becoming an ex-IBMer.
Yes it’s time for me to move on, so I have decided to try something new.
I am joining a really exciting IT startup called Actifio.
So for all of you who have worked with me and helped me over the past 23 years:
It has been an honor to work at IBM and I wish Big Blue and all who continue to work there, nothing but success and happiness.
And for my readers, please hang around. I am working on some (hopefully) great new blog posts. It’s an exciting time for IT and one that I am really looking forward to being a part of.
