Resume – Thomas O’Hare – Information Systems Engineer

Thomas@RedTile.Com -- Thomas.OHare.RTS@GMail.Com


This is a partial list detailing my last Ten Years of “Hands On” Information Systems experience working with small to large corporations. Most of my experience is with sizable, complex, multi-site installations having a net worth ranging from millions to billions of dollars. I am a key player with every position I hold and responsible for not only generating larger profits, but also keeping sites/users running efficiently in 24/7 environments. My experience focuses on “Data” and the manner in which it is Gathered, Stored, Transmitted and Utilized. I am positioned for next generation technologies such as “Internet of Things” (IoT). IoT encapsulates networking of physical objects/devices while enabling them to collect or exchange information with both archived and real-time data sources. This includes the merging of Data, Networks, Systems and Devices thus allowing it to be implemented in a dynamic, intelligent, real world environment.
