|DJ Hausmann receiving his award from David Zolnowsky,|
DJ has been serving within BIT since 2001. Since beginning his career within Tele’s LAN Services, DJ has been a valued member of the Technical Administration & Integration Team in the Data Center. DJ performs physical infrastructure duties from rack mounting, to wiring, inventory, and multiple levels of server administration, as well as working on the newly emerging area of virtualization, VMWare. This virtualization saves the state a tremendous amount of expense in hardware, software, licensing, and environmental dollars. During the past two years, DJ has taken on a primary role, partnering with fellow Data Center, Network Technology, and Point of Contact personnel in coordinating, implementing and presenting the State’s first Microsoft SharePoint environment. To date, DJ has presented the technology to most of the State’s agencies with hundreds of users currently evaluating the service for their agency business-critical needs. In response to today’s passionate drive of users towards mobile devices and applications, DJ has been partnering with many in BIT to better deliver mobile services to users—delivering more convenient, safe and secure access to their needed State resources.
