About

An adept Virtualization Consultant with 25 years experience in the Information Technology industry. A specialist in the design, integration and implementation of complex virtual environments with 15 years specific and in-depth experience with Citrix virtualization technologies. Strong leadership and Project Management skills ensure the on time completion of projects within the allocated budget. Exceptional communication skills including the ability to easily make sense of complex issues.

As a Consultant I am primarily engaged on client facing professional services engagements and lead the technical aspects of virtualization projects. My responsibilities include:

  • Manage, design, maintain and upgrade or migrate Citrix environments for clients
  • Troubleshoot application, server and network performance issues
  • Plan and perform all routine administration and maintenance
  • Develop and maintain concise process documentation related to responsibilities
  • Develop, review, recommend and manage budget proposals and project schedules
  • Stay current with trends in virtualization including the latest tools, methods, and measures within virtualization

The virtualization projects I have worked on can generally be classified into three skill categories. These are high level architecture and design; systems engineering and implementations and systems administration and management. Some projects require the use of all three categories while others have only required one specific skill level.

Some of the clients for whom I have successfully completed virtualization projects include:

    “Cliff is one of those rare technology gurus who really has a complete grasp on his specialty: Citrix and terminal services. He’s worked on a large number of projects for me over the last six years and I’m about to bring him on to another project we just landed. With Cliff handling the architectural aspects of a Citrix implementation, I know I can have complete confidence that I’ll get a top end, rock solid solution. Cliff is my secret weapon for dealing with tough Citrix problems and complicated architectural requirements.”

  • Having worked with Cliff, I can pretty much vouch that he is an expert in this field – a field which confuses the heck out of me – so glad to have guys like him around.

    “I hired Cliff as part of our third party Citrix support contract. He was assigned as my primary technical contact and quickly became the primary reason for subsequent renewals. We struck up a solid report, but more importantly, he went beyond my expectations with his knowledge, breadth of resources, and willingness to go beyond our contractual agreement in the spirit of servicing the customer. The physical distance between our offices was seamless and he was used as another Citrix Team member. I worked with Cliff when I was in the Wolseley organization, but since have moved on to a more solid organization. Nevertheless, I still hope to work with Cliff in the future.”

    “We outsourced Cliff to one of our clients for a short-term Citrix administration deal. Cliff was able to win their trust leading to multiple extensions of the engagement. He was great with working with both the client and our own resources on connected projects. We would definitely work with Cliff again if an opportunity were to arise.”

    “I would recommend Cliff for any and all Citrix related duties from planning to rolling out the final product. In my experience with Cliff he was easy to get along with, came in with a positive can-do attitude, worked well with everyone and had a strong work ethic to complete the tasks he was hired to do. Technically he came in with a very strong knowledge base of Citrix and Microsoft networking and plenty of hands-on real world experience.”

    “When I think Citrix Consultant I think Cliff Davies. Cliff is the best Citrix Consultant I have ever worked with and I have worked with a lot of Citrix Consultants in my day. I would recommend Cliff to anyone looking to get a project done that includes Citrix, knowing that it would get done the best and most efficient way possible. Cliff comes with a ton of experience that shows in his detail and quality of work. If you want to get a Citrix project done right the 1st time, consider Cliff as the lead for that project.”
