About Ray Heath - Professional & Personal Interests   back to top
Professional Focus
I specialize in Information Technology & General Management, attending clients from a wide variety of industries (traditional and high-tech). Work consists primarily of business development, strategic analysis and planning, IT systems and software development, and product / project management. I serve Boards of Directors and Senior Management.

As a consultant, I constantly work with and manage teams utilizing diverse technologies. That said, the primary focus of my own personal technical effort over the past year has largely been concentrated on High Performance Computing, especially IA-64 (Intel Itanium2 machines, featuring multiple processors). It is truly remarkable what these machines can do. We are specifically targeting the platform for back-end computing on our 'RH Manager' product line.

Effective Management Attention, summarized on my Solutions Page is key to any value proposition that I offer to clients. This very exciting area of practice and study requires a 'Generalist' skill set in addition to any specialized or functional role (e.g. IT Consultant), and targets application of effective Performance Measurement and Control Systems for Implementing Corporate Strategy.

Personal Interests
Those who want to know more about me will find music in my past. After studying music composition in college, I went on to work for many years as a professional musician. By the '90s, I had largely retired from public performance. Now, after years of neglect, I occasionally pick up the guitar again. And one thing is clear; I need to catch up on my practice sessions. Make that two things, don't give up my day job.

Playing Jazz Guitar
The great Andy Roemer and I rehearsing a few tunes before a gig back in the '80s. Andy was a musician's musician - intensely respected by the industry's top jazz artists.

A Note Regarding E-Mail
I get a substantial number of spam e-mails. A Bayesian filter puts most of these in a 'Junk' folder. Occasionally however, legitimate correspondence that really should reach me gets forwarded to that folder. While I check these items before deleting, there is a chance your message may be missed. This happens only rarely, but it does happen. Any e-mails with the string "[rayheath]" in the subject line are currently allowed to bypass the filter (the square brackets should be included).* Aside from requesting that you not add my email address to bulk mailing lists, I am certainly glad to hear from you personally—and welcome contact via e-mail. Here are some examples:
 
    You wish to commission my help with your business, products or projects
    Inquiries about consulting, speaking engagements, conference proposals, interviews and article ideas
    Questions about our products and services
    Site suggestions, or feedback about my weblog
    You sell some product or service that you would like me or my clients to consider
    Long lost friends who somehow found me on the Internet of all places
 
 
* Note: This override of the spam filter will be enabled only so long as it proves effective.
