My main focus is on Cloud Computing Systems Technical Consulting specializing in XenApp and supporting Citrix technologies, Netscaler, Windows Server 2008/2012/2016 and Azure/Office365. I have significant experience in installing, configuring and supporting Microsoft and Citrix products in cloud environments for international clients. I possess various Microsoft and Citrix technical certifications and an established record in delivering successful technical trainings, documentation and technical workshops to IT professionals and international students. I bring 10+ years of overall IT experience and 7+ years of hands-on training experience by delivering preparatory courses for Microsoft and Citrix certifications.
