I am a Product Specialist at IBM, spending most of my time in DataStage and everything “real time” concerning Information Server and its related offerings. This includes support for Service Oriented Architecture, Messaging, XML, JSON and Web Services…and in the last few years, extensive experience with the Information Server metadata offerings: Metadata Workbench, Business Glossary, the Information Governance Catalog, and more.

Nearly nineteen years at IBM reflects experience with heritage Ascential (DataStage), wearing various hats in product management, professional services, and technical sales support. ….and many years prior with Information Builders….
