Brendan is a Senior Consultant with Microsoft Services New Zealand. Brendan has been in the industry since the early 90's and in that time has developed a broad field of competence but now specialises in virtualization, cloud, and systems management technologies and being a glutton for punishment also specialises in Windows deployment. Once a deployment guy, always a deployment guy. Prior to joining Microsoft in 2008, Brendan worked in the partner ecosystem and specialised in VMware and Altiris technologies Looking back and looking at the technologies and solutions Microsoft is creating today, is glad he made the switch.
