Since last week’s Monday (March 7) I am in a new position within Sun: I am now working in the CTO’s Business Alliances group, together with people like Eve Maler, Bill Smith, Lauren Wood and some more really smart people. We are working closely with different groups within Sun and Microsoft on making the alliance of the odd couple (Sun/Microsoft) a reality. I am truely looking forward to this challenge, since this group is in the unique situation of being able to influence not only Sun’s but the entire industries perception of interoperablility and Web Services in particular.
To me, this is a long-due fine-adjustment to my tenure at Sun: I started with Sun Germany in 1997 as a pre-sales Systems Engineer responsible for “PC” Interoperability. Then – in 2000 – I took up a job with the (mostly) Boston-based Competitive Strategy Group. Our charter was to support the Sun Legal team on various occasions and supply them with Microsoft Interoperability Information…
This is going to be fun.
Hi Gerry –
Just a quick note to say: I absolutely agree with you about the new team (having joined on the same day…), and I’m looking forward to working with you.
