I live and work in Australia. I participate in a number of social networking sites as a person who is knowledge thirsty and who only satisfies his thirst by sharing his knowledge for good use for humanity! In my experience, the more we share the more we gain. I have abundance mentality in realistic boundaries. I have been working as a certified Executive IT Architect in IBM Australia. Having been in the IT industry for 27 years; worked in a number of global organisations. In IBM, I support large customer accounts from various sectors as a chief engineer (or chief architect as some customers call me as); understand customer's requirements, pain points and expectations for the services we provide; translate them into strategies and macro designs. At personal level, internally or externally in my organisation, I only see partners (not competitors) in my profession. This means that collaboration with diverse range of professionals is my major focus and an embedded philosophy in my professional and social life. About my education and collaboration: I am a lifelong learner. I completed a number of academic degrees latest being a Professional Doctorate from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, a master's, a postgraduate and a bachelor's degrees before. I achieved Distinguished Certified IT Architect status by The Open Group. I obtained a number of vendor qualifications such as from IBM, Microsoft and Cisco too. These credentials disciplined, informed, and enabled me to reach out more expertise and establish high performing virtual teams globally scattered yet very efficient using leading edge technologies. I am a member of a number of professional organisations, some leading ones are the British Computer Society (BCS) and Institute for Engineering and Technology (IET) in the UK. I share my formally established knowledge by publishing in industry, scientific and academic journals. I also provide my personal views in online forums, blogs and clubs. My key research interest areas are emerging technologies such as nanotechnology; molecular economy, mass collaboration, technical strategy, transition and transformation projects, collaborative research for innovation through virtual teams, tacit knowledge transfer, informal learning, virtual networks, open computing, dynamic infrastructure, service oriented architecture, and self healing systems. My professional expertise includes topics such enterprise architecture, systems engineering, business component model, services science, business continuity, disaster recovery, performance and capacity management, infrastructure design, technology planning, automation and setting global standards.
