Bill's Caricature from SHARE Europe

I joined IBM in 1985 and retired in 2022. From 1985 to early 2011, up to early 2011, I had worked in VM performance. I have a love for performance. If you love performance (or hate it) you might want to check out the other VM performance info. My understanding of what VM performance means in the real world grew greatly when I became a development rep to the VM Performance and Capacity Planning Project of the SHARE organization in 1992.

In 2011, I took a new role in the z/VM Development Lab in what I call Customer Focus and Care. In this role, I help IBM account teams and customers get over hurdles in their efforts to get the most out of z/VM virtualization. I help them leverage the skills and the expertise of Development Lab. I also attend planning and design meetings to help guide the product with the view of the customer. In other words, I try to represent the product to the field and represent the field to the product.

After almost 37 years with IBM, all of them in z/VM, I chose to retire from IBM. My farewell message is on YouTube.
