Brief Career History

I was originally a desktop engineer, but when I moved into my current company I took a role with another team which exposed me to different emerging technologies, such as MobileIron.

What brought you to the training today?

Bridgeway are coming into our office in three week's time to deploy and configure MobileIron for us. I’m learning the backend of MobileIron and then I will be supporting it once Bridgeway have deployed the console.

How have you found your three-day course?

The training has been really good. Our trainer Scott is very personable and goes into great detail, gives very good analogies and talks from his own personal experience which helps us trainees understand very well. MobileIron seems easy to use, it has a great user interface and some excellent features for support. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on it!

What features excite you the most?

The dashboard is really easy to use and I found the log files section interesting because it shows you where your issues are. The console is very easy to read and you can see quickly which device or server is causing a problem, which is hugely appealing from a supporter's point of view.

How do you think the course can help with your professional development?

MobileIron is another tool for me to get my hands on and gain experience in; if I wanted to get another job in the future it’s a great tool to have on my CV.

What are the predictions for your role in the future?

I think my role is going to continue to be very fluid. In my current position I’m having to learn back up tool Blade Logic at the same time as MobileIron, and I will be supporting that across 8 clients. At the moment my role is very diverse, my main job is SSEM but I am branching off and doing other bits and pieces, so every day is a challenge!
