I started using the Altiris products in 2004 when I joined my current team. My first task was to implement Recovery Solution 6.0. In 2005 my team led a project to implement an Enterprise systems-management tool. After reviewing 8 RFP responses, in the end we went with Altiris. I was primarily responsible for documenting and deploying our Altiris NS 6.x environment globally.
Shortly after we implemented I discovered the Altiris Support Forums and like many of my co-Advisors here eventually found myself answering more questions than I asked. I found the Forum to be an extremely valuable learning resource; what better way to learn that troubleshooting real-life customer problems? I was then invited to become one of the Altiris Forum Advisors (the precursor from the Altiris side at least to the Trusted Advisors) and joined the ranks (and by rank, I do mean you Jim!).
In my daily job at a Fortune 250 company, I have extensive experience with Inventory solution, Software Delivery, Patch Management, Application Metering, Recovery Solution, Local Security Solution, general Notification Server management, NS reports/collection creation and a bit of basic DS usage (all in the 6.x releases). I'm scaling up my skills in Workflow and am excited about the potential of that tool.
I live in a suburb of of St. Louis, MO with my wife and three children.
