Since I’m doing the hand-overs, I guess it’s ok if I break the news here. With the coming of the new year, I’m going to be starting a new job.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at NetsurIT for the opportunity, training and comradeship. This is a truly awesome company and I’m going to miss everybody. Having said that, I am really excited about the new opportunities at IS Partners and I can’t wait to get stuck into the new year.
I’m going to be doing much the same work (SharePoint administration and configuration), but IS Partners’ clients are a in a bit of a different space from NetsurIT’s. I think the corporate maturity will be a bit higher, so I’m looking forward to having some configuration briefs that are a little more complete. I’m also looking forward to working with the SharePoint team that they’ve got setup, and getting into configuration for the BI and Content Management that they are so strong on.
