G'Day. My name is Adam Brown. I work in the software industry and have a focus on IBM software and technologies. In particular I spend a lot of my time helping organisations to improve their collaboration and business processes thru the utilisation of technology. I have a passion for using software to improve communication, the capture of knowledge, and improving business processes.
I am the Executive Director of Technology and Business Development for ISW, a fantastic Australian company based in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Northern Territory, and Hobart. ISW is a Premier IBM Business Partner that works with clients globally. I am an IBM Champion for Collaboration Solutions and an expert in IBM Connections, particularly with a focus on user adoption and development. I am part of the team that created Kudos for IBM Connections.
I studied Computer Science at the University of Tasmania and graduated in 1996. Since then I have completed a Masters of Business and Techology with the University of NSW as well as various industry technical certifications. I started with ISW in 1996 as a Software Engineer with a focus on Lotus Notes (version 3 back then). I have worked with many different clients from small business to very large enterprise and government organisation. What I enjoy most with the work is helping these organisations to work better and having a positive impact on their objectives. From a technology perspective I spend most of my time with IBM Connections, WebSphere, Portal, Forms Experience Builder, and most recently have invested myself into Bluemix and the MEAN stack.
Away from work I have a wonderful wife Jayne, and absolutely wonderful daughters Molly & Ruby, and an awesome son Toby. Most of my spare time is spent with the family and our friends. And that is a photo of our dog Jessie.
