Time to introduce my day job (and frequently my night job as well !!)
I am a Senior IT Specialist with IBM Australia. Specifically I work in the WebSphere Innovation Centers (WIC), part of the WebSphere brand of the Software Group.
Our job is technical enablement for our channels organisation. Mostly this means providing education and mentoring to our business partners who sell and consult for our products, as well as to internal IBM consultants and technical sales specialists.
We spend most of our time running product update classes and hands-on technical classes based on new product releases for early adopters of the technology. This means we are always striving to keep up with our own demanding product release schedules, and are always on the (b)leading edge of the technology, which can be both a good and a bad thing.
I’ll try and fill you in on some of the more interesting stuff that happens in my work life, but it is important to note that the views and opinions expressed in this blog are mine, and do not necessarily represent those of my employer.
