Sitting on the Board of Directors (www.CMG.org)

Here is my previous nomination statement:

CMG Board of Directors Nomination


My term in CMG BOD comes to the end soon and the work was very interesting and exciting!
So I decided to nominate myself for the next term as I believe after gathering so great experiences as a CMG director now I can serve much more productive!

Below is my updated nomination statement:
Professional Work Experience: I have over 30 years of experience in the IT field. I have started my career in 1979 as an IBM 370 system engineer. In 1986, I received my PhD. in Robotics at St. Petersburg Technical University (Russia), where I then taught full-time such subjects as CAD/CAM, Robotics and Computer Science for about 12 years. For that period, I have published more than 30 papers and made several presentations for different international conferences related to the Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Computer fields. In 1999, I moved to the US and worked at Capital One bank as a Capacity Planner. My first CMG paper was written and presented in 2001. The next one, "Global and Application Level Exception Detection System Based on MASF Technique," won a Best Paper award at CMG’02 and was presented again at UKCMG’03 in Oxford, England. My CMG papers were republished in the IBM z/Series Expo and in CIS Jornal. I also presented my papers in Central Europe CMG conference (Austria) and at numerous US regional meetings including workshops. After working more than 2 years as the Capacity Management team lead for IBM, I had worked for SunTrust Bank for 3 years and then got back to IBM holding for 2+ years Sr. IT Architect position (Certified IT Specialist). Currently I work for Capital One bank as IT Manager for IT Capacity Management group.
Major accomplishments: SETDS ML Anomaly detection methodology; Model Factory (patent pending). The current list of my publications consists of 14 items. I have an entrepreneurship experience as I have recently formed my small business for developing cloud based mobile apps and services (TRUTECH development, LLC)
Since 2005 I have worked as SouthernCMG vice-chair covering vendors’ connections.
In 2015 I have been elected to the CMG (http://www.cmg.org) board of directors. Major achievements as a CMG Director are: working in publication committee I have prototyped and put into CMG.org  site the CMG blog and published there a few initial posts; I was the MeasureIT editor and also helped to reestablish CMG journal. Found Suggested some good invited speakers for conference (e.g. Kevin McLaughlin from Capital One); brought 4 vendors as potential partners and also work in CMG regions committee. Has started organizing the DC area CMG meet-up (former NCACMG)

Willingness to Serve: CMG has been an extremely valuable part of my professional life for the past 15th years. Because of CMG, I became a known specialist in IT Capacity Management discipline! I have already worked at the regional CMG  level to support the organization and would like to serve on CMG's Board of Directors to continue promoting the organization throughout the IT community. My company and family members support my involvement with and commitment to CMG.

Candidate Statement: I believe that I am uniquely qualified and motivated to serve CMG and its future development, as the IT landscape dramatically changes. As my major accomplishment lays in the area of Machine Learning, Predictive analytics and Anomaly detection (e.g. SETDS method) I would like to be sure that CMG content reflects this and other bleeding edge technology including cloud computing and big data. Being experienced blogger/vlogger (System Management by Exception/ iTrubin on YouTube), I would leverage social networks to bring more members to CMG. Also I would like to leverage my success in establishing the vendors’ connection to bring more partners and sponsors. So my position as a Capacity Management expert and my dedication to the CMG organization will allow me to contribute in substantial ways. I further believe that my teaching experience could enhance CMG’s training and educational services for technical community. If elected, I will diligently pursue innovative ways to strengthen the organization’s membership. I will continue the CMG’s dedicated tradition of volunteerism and will actively seek ways to support and improve CMG's commitment to supporting its members.
