As many of you might have noticed, I’m not in Rotterdam attending Engage. The reason is simple:
I’m leaving my dear old company, Item Consulting.
I love Item. I love IBM Software but most of all, I love the ICS Community. I have gotten to know a lot of you, in such an extent that I consider you to be my friends.
But I got an opportunity to work in the Collaboration department at Sopra Steria, Norway, and after working with Lotus and IBM Collaboration Solutions software for 20 years now, I think this is the time for me to do something different, learn something new, explore other vendors, other technologies. Microsoft, Cisco. Softlayer, IBM ICS stuff. Whatever the customer wants, Sopra delivers.
So, I took the job at Sopra Steria. Which is a great company, a huge knowledge-sharing environment and also is crowned with the award for “Best place to work” 2 years in a row here in Norway. I took the chance and I’m not regretting it.
So, I will not be a stranger, I’m still an IBM Champion throughout 2018, so I do still feel the commitment to assist in any way I can. I will also continue blogging.
So, cheers, adieu but not farewell.
