This is an exciting period for AnalyticOps Insights.It is growing and it is becoming from personal blog to a community blog. Our new author Sameer Mhaisekar is a very talented blogger, a young ambitious SCOM expert and a community contributor. Let’s get know him a little better.
Who is Sameer?
Hello, I am a young addition to the SCOM community from India. I’ve been working with SCOM for the last couple of years and fell in love with it. After being blessed by the awesome community for a long time, a few months ago I started contributing my little share. I’m serving the community mainly in the Operations Manager forums. I aim to be a capable SCOM admin and MP author. Apart from SCOM, I also take a keen interest in Powershell, SCCM, Azure, and OMS (which I am still learning).When I’m not working I enjoy reading, blogging, traveling, sports, online gaming, etc.
I have read your Linkedin and Microsoft Tech profiles, and the first impression I got is that you are a very ambition guy. In two years you have done so much. Your progress is very impressive. And therefore it makes sense to me that you have great ideas and goals that you want to achieve. So, first of all, am I right? If I am, what are they?
You are right, I am pretty ambitious and willing to work hard for it. I aim to be a capable IT professional all-around and an MP author and to serve the community as much as I can. My goal is to be a person who can get your work done, whenever you ask me to.
What was the biggest challenge in your workplace that you accomplished?
The biggest challenge I faced (which I still face very often) is just coming up with the sheer vastness of IT. Having come from a non-IT background, this was pretty tough for me in the beginning. However, after a while, I got used to it, and now I actually love that there’s always more and new things to learn!
Do you think there is a future for SCOM?
Definitely. Apart from the fact that there is a vast majority of organizations who are highly dependent on SCOM environments, it is simply not possible or feasible to move everything to cloud and achieve the same level of competency. Not to mention SCOM is becoming better and better, just look at the latest version SCOM 1801!
Do you think the OMS will replace SCOM?
Not in near future, no it won’t. I believe SCOM and OMS both work the best hand-in-hand, and they compliment each other very well. I think the advantages on-premise software providers are not matched in cloud solutions (yet, at least). However, let’s not pretend that OMS will never replace SCOM in future, but for now, SCOM is here to stay.
And finally a traditional question, Star Wars or Star Trek?
Well, please don’t hate me for saying this, but I haven’t watched both and to be honest, I’m not a fan of it either.
For me though, the better question would be “Who’s better, Messi or Ronaldo?”
