HOW I WORK.
One of the principal aims of MIS is achieving the highest quality output with the lowest effort, or said another way, finding the nexus between high quality and efficiency. I pursue this lofty goal with experience, passion and integrity.
I MAKE IT MAKE SENSE.
My goal, at least, is to make sense of IT. Let’s face it: there are a ton of technologies available and making sense of all the choices can be daunting. And once the choice about which technology is right has been made, there are further questions that require answers, such as: Which vendor should I use? How will I accomplish implementation? Security? Training?
Need help making sense of IT? That’s why I created this website. And I’m always open for questions and opportunities to help.
