Since the cat was let out of the bag on Twitter last night, I thought I would write a brief post to let people know that this coming Friday will be my last day at CSC - I'm moving into a technology consulting role at a specialist consulting firm, called IPP Consulting. I'll be working along side Brian Bailey based out of their Sydney office. Brian and I have previously worked together at Ernst & Young.
If this move to IPP Consulting doesn't make immediate sense when you read their profile - they have a strong emphasis on risk and security consulting, as well as technology - don't worry! I'm not about to disappear behind a firewall. If anything, expect to hear and see more from me in the future. For me this is about returning to the goals I had when I started my own consulting business in 2004, which is reflected in the tag line on this blog:
"Helping you to get on, not get by, with information technology"
This isn't to say I haven't been doing that at CSC (and I've really enjoyed the CSC experience), but I think I will be better positioned in my new role at IPP to do that. More on all that and what I'll be doing at IPP later...
