Vision, next steps



    I'd like to :

1. Help companies reduce their operational costs and risks by automating their processes. Helping them analyze their needs and writing the required scripts or applications. Promote and evangelize the idea and advantages of IT Automation and its cost-saving importance.

2. Consider Training as a profitable business. Promote, sell and deliver PowerShell training (and any other related services) to the large number of demanding customers. Increase a company business presence by creating or growing their Education Department.

3. Train companies, customers, teams or individuals, on Windows PowerShell and other related products, and helping them later with their particular scripting or coding needs.

4. Offer my experience in analysis, support, troubleshooting, service management, monitoring, alerts, documentation, processes, and any related tasks, in the Windows, PowerShell, Active Directory, Cluster and DotNet environments.

5. Offer my customer-ready contents and tools, owned by myself. Promote the usage of my Content Management + Translation Tool, and possibly sell it to any interested customer.
