Monitoring solutions for the hybrid cloud

About me

I am a Microsoft Senior Premier Field Engineer specialising in System Center Operations Manager (SCOM), Operations Management Suite (OMS) and Azure. Prior to joining Microsoft I was System Center lead at a financial institution in the City of London and prior to that I was an MVP in Cloud and Datacenter Management for 5 years. As such I’ve lived the System Center dream, and occasional nightmare, from a Microsoft, customer and partner perspective.

I have worked with SCOM since it was a NetIQ solution back in the 1990’s; it was inherited from Mission Critical Software and then licensed on to Microsoft to become MOM 2000 and begin it’s journey to the System Center suite.

Outside of work, I enjoy hill walking and photography as well watching rugby union.
