About

Justin in his own words

I have spent the better part of the last two decades at Microsoft fulfilling a variety of technical and management roles in IT, R&D, and Systems Engineering. I have extensive experience over the last 10 years working on large distributed SQL and multi-tiered systems with a global scale user base in the hundreds of millions, both from Test/QA and System & Service Engineering perspectives. This experience is with both technical and project management lenses.
In addition to the technical achievements I’ve been fortunate to contribute to and be a part of; I have successful experience driving and managing bottom up fiscal year budget development, forecasting, and execution. I’ve managed and executed against multi-million dollar R&D budgets for Windows Live Labs for the last 3 years. I also have notable experience related to datacenter and server pipeline, vendor relationships with Rackable/SGI, HP, WTT, Cisco, and other global server and technology vendors.

From a management standpoint I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to create, build, staff and manage several high performing multi discipline teams in QA, Infrastructure Services, and Systems & Service Engineering.
I have worked on some of the largest software engineering efforts in the Internet space including global scale blob and structured storage, global scale cloud directory services, and authentication. Other projects include several large scale datacenter moves (thousands of man hours) over the last 5 years, large scale data migrations (petabytes), high availability through transactional QoS and synthetic transactions, and commoditized large scale server systems.

About the Blog

I’ve decided to start writing about the topics I’m passionate about professionally.

My passions and interests incl;ude but are not limited to ITIL, MOF, ITSM, IT governance, Systems Engineering, Software Engineering, Operating systems, SQL, Big Data, Global scale internet applications, Monitoring, Six Sigma, TQM, Authentication, Security, Storage trends, and many other topics within this theme. I hope you enjoy what I write. If you have suggestions on topics, critisism, or comments please feel free to submit them.
