Solaris News, Views, and Real-World Experiences from the Field

Team Meeting in Newark This Week

Scott Dickson
Enterprise Systems Architect
I'm part of the Solaris x86 and Volume Server practice within US Client Solutions. You might have seem some of the other folks talking about CSO in their posts. This is a new organization this year designed to bring together the technical folks in the field responsible for both pre-sales and delivery of solutions.
This team is made up of about 25 folks spread across the US. I've been part of distributed groups before, but never a national group like this. I've probably met less than half of my co-workers so far. This coming week, we will all get together at the Sun campus in Newark, CA for the first time. I'm looking forward to finally putting a face to the voices from our team calls.
It's funny. For every change like this new team and organization, there are always pluses and minuses. It's good to be part of a team focused around such cool technology as Solaris. But moving to a nationwide team rather than a local team does seem to force some extra effort to build a team out of a bunch of dispersed folks. This is one of those cases, I think, that this will work, though. We've got the coolest product going as our focus. I think the only downside here is that it's going to take more than the 25 of us to handle all of the projects that our customers will come up with.

    Hello! Happened to find your blog, and thought I'd ad a comment. I have a COMPLETE Family Tree of the Secord Family, dating to the 1500's. At the top of the tree is the name Servos. The Secords left the Americas, when the War broke out, and settled in the Niagara Valley.James Secord married Laura Ingersoll, of Ingersoll Ontario. Hence Laura Secord, and her heroic trek to alert The British that the Americans were going to invade Canada. I am a DIRECT decendent of this Woman. My Grandfather was her great, great, great, Nephew.

    Unfortunately the Secord name ends with me.

    Have a nice day.

    Scott Secord Dickson
