It has been almost 6 weeks since my last post and it is time to bring to light what has been going on in my world during that time.
While I am not someone who discusses my employer regularly on my blog, I joined Sentri 6 months ago and couldn’t be happier. Especially in light of recent developments. Some of you may have noticed the press release, twitter storms, webcasts, etc about Sentri’s acquisition of the KMA SharePoint Practice. Over night my small practice grew to more than 4 times its size and was endowed with even more dynamic, and highly talented people.
Anyone who has ever lived through the M&A process can tell you that it is a nail biting & hair raising process as you never know if things are going to move forward or if Murphy is going to stick his head up and yell “GOTCHA!”
In the weeks since my last posting life has been extremely interesting and exciting preparing for and then finally working through the details of integrating two different SharePoint Practices into one.
Needless to say since I am writing this post, we are in the lucky 17% that went into the M&A process and came out the other side smiling. I am sincerely thrilled to be working closely with Mike Gilronan (check out his take on this here), Derek Cash-Peterson, and the entire Sentri SharePoint team.
As for my commitment to the SharePoint community, it remains as strong as ever. I have added a Speaking Engagements section to my blog so that you can find out where and when I will be speaking next. This week I will be speaking at the NYC SPUG on Wednesday March 7th, 2012 at 6pm.
