Eric Johnson

My Thoughts on SQL Server and Database Related Technologies.

New to SQLBlog.com

Hi everybody, I am new to SQLBlog.com so I thought I would blog a little about who I am. My name is Eric Johnson, not the guitar player, though I would like his money :) I am the co-founder of Consortio Services (www.consortioservices.com), and the primary Database Technologies Consultant. My background in Information Technology is diverse, ranging from operating systems and hardware to specialized applications and development and I have even done my fair share of work on networks. Since IT is really just a way to support business processes, I also acquired my MBA in 2004. All in all, I have more than 10 years of experience with IT, a great amount of that time has been spent working with Microsoft SQL Server. In October 07 I was awarded an MVP from Microsoft in SQL Server. I am also the President of the Colorado Springs SQL Server Users Group (www.springssql.org). In addition to all the SQL Server work, I remain a general IT geek and I co-host CS Techcast, a weekly podcast for IT pros available from www.cstechcast.com. I look forward to being a member of the SQLBlog.com community and I hope you find my contributions worth while.

Welcome!

BTW, Do people ever ask you questions about "Contoso" - the mythological company used by MSFT?  The name of your company is similar to it.

Welcome to the blogging community!

Eric Johnson (the guitarist) is not really known in Belgium so I hope many Belgian people will read your blog too ;-)

You know, I never really thought about the similarity of Consortio to Contoso. It certainly wasn't deliberate, we were going for a word that loosely meant partnership in Latin (I know, geeky).
