Leaving ISSL

Just before Lotusphere '06, I closed the doors on my one man consulting operation and joined IBM as a consultant for IBM Software Services for Lotus (ISSL). This group is made up of some of the best consultants and project managers that I have ever worked with. They are professional, smart, quick, and fun. In the past 21 months ISSL has sent me around the world to work on some of the greatest projects. Through them, I have had the opportunity to get up to speed on the latest in Notes and Domino, Expeditor, Forms, and recently Connections. It truly has been great to work with customers and to leave them happy with their Lotus based solutions. I can not recommend or say enough about ISSL and will certainly miss working with a team of like minds who are passionate about making our products work for our customers.

I feel that I will find the same spirit to deliver great collaborative solutions based on Lotus technologies in my new role as Tech Lead for the Lotus Greenhouse. The Lotus Greenhouse has just undergone a makeover and has great plans for the rest of the year and leading into Lotusphere. I can't wait to dive in and hope to see it become a strong social network for everyone interested in Lotus technologies.
