Collab Admin, Powershell Addict, and Monitoring Freak (IT) in White Bear Lake, Minnesota
Senior Messaging and Collaboration professional.
20 years enterprise experience primarily focused on Microsoft Email & Collab platforms. Most-recently designing and implementing our migration from Exchange 2010 on-prem to hybrid Exchange 2016/Office365.
My Email Review/Archiving/SOX-compliance experience includes Symantec Enterprise Vault (along with a series of products devolved into the current HP Autonomy & Clearwell offerings).
Along the way I've developed pretty solid monitoring skills leveraging SCOM, NetIQand SolarWinds, I also pride myself on being a skilled Powershell/VBS/VB developer and admin-scripter.
