Biography

My background is in the physical aspects of electronics and telecommunications (Master Degree at the University of Liege in Belgium) . I also have a degree in finance and accounting (MBA style) from the same university.

I started my life in systems management as a Tivoli certified consultant and trainer in 1997, in particular on Tivoli Distributed Monitoring and Tivoli Enterprise Console. At the time I was working with IT Masters (acquired by BMC in 2003) which already had service support integrations and service-centric operations at the core of its strategy.

I have been working close to the "cell" technology and its solar system since its beginning in the late nineties. Since then  I have pretty much accompanied the cell (aka BMC Impact Manager) technology through its booming life, providing consulting services and education worldwide, as a consultant and lately as the product manager for the entire suite, dealing with strategy, architecture and driving R&D. In this last role I have among other things ensured the certification of BMC Event Manager as enabling the ITIL event management process. See here for other documents I have created.
 
The cell technology is now at the heart of the BMC Service Assurance strategy, and is included in the BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management platform and BMC Atrium CMDB. With a unique history and knowledge on the cell, as well as solid experience on operations and service support processes, I may be able to help you !
