Project Summary
Project Name: Enterprise IT Operations

1. Data Center Metrics
2. Project Manager for the DCIM Project
3. VMware task automation

Training Summary: Data Center Metrics - This was Andrew's first project where he took on the task of
collecting the various infrastructure group metrics and produced the collection of
metrics into a monthly publication to the users. Andrew has made many
enhancements and has the metrics running smooth.
Project Management of the DCIM project - This project is in the kick off phase
and Andrew is learning how to manage all aspects of running a project from start
to finish. Andrew will be holding progress meetings, collecting information and
working with vendors validating the completeness of their scope of work.
VMware task automation - Andrew has been working with the VMware subject
matter expert to understand every step in the VM server build and decommission
process. With this knowledge he will be able to automated scripts to replace
manual steps. These scripts can be added into a workflow engine to fully
automate the process in the future.

Student Quarterly Self Evaluation Response
The second quarter of my Werner H. Kirsten internship has marked not only the
continuation of several of my long-term projects, such as monthly metrics reporting and
automation of the virtual environment, but also the start of a new project involving the
installation and use of the iTRACS Data Center Management (DCIM) software package,
in which I am acting as a Project Manager. These three projects²along with other µtasks
as assigned¶²have constituted most my time for the last several months.
Each of my projects has been coming along well. I have sent out the metrics report for
the past six months now, and have ended up completely changing some aspects and
working to improve others. I try to find something to improve every month to find the most
suitable way to present all the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) within the IT
Operations Group (ITOG). This has entailed significantly more information being
included, especially with regard to network link metrics (previously non-existent) and
Oracle database metrics (previously very minimal). In particular, I developed an entire
.xlsm spreadsheet devoted to formatting and graphing raw data obtained from Oracle
Enterprise Manager (OEM). The entire presentation now looks more polished and
provides more information to stakeholders.
I have also taken several steps toward automating aspects of the vSphere environment. I
now handle almost all tickets (user requests) to decommission virtual machines, and I
developed a useful script using the PowerCLI scripting language to take some automated
actions necessary for the decommission process. The script automatically relocates the
virtual machine¶s resource pool, disables the network adapter upon startup (as a
safeguard), updates the virtual machine¶s annotations, and sends emails to the system
owner, ticket requestor, and IT personnel implicated in the decommission. In addition to
this decommission script, I have been working with ITOG subject matter experts (SMEs)
to understand the full process for creating virtual machines so that that process can be
automated in the future. This involved learning from John Contino, the VM specialist at
ITOG, as well as meeting with Pardeep Verma, who creates virtual machines for C&SS.
We will be working to combine the groups¶ creation processes and develop a form where
users can request virtual machines using drop-down menus and inputs, mitigating many

of the manual keystrokes normally associated with VM creation and greatly improving
security.
Finally, I have been acting as the Project Manager for the installation and use of iTRACS
DCIM software. I wrote the project charter and attend weekly meetings with the integrated
project team (IPT) to determine the best course of action. Currently, we are working on
supplying a number of documents to the representatives from iTRACS and the Nova
Corporation so they can get the software running properly. I am working with experts in
networking and data center management to develop a timeline for when we will be able
to have this information.
Altogether, I feel that I have improved in many areas with respect to my first quarter
performance²particularly in actively seeking out advice and projects²but there are other
areas where I could still better myself. For example, one of my goals for the next term is
to adapt my writing style to be as concise as possible in work-related emails to make
action items easier to determine at a glance. I also would like to become less hesitant to
talk to people in person instead of sending an email, as in-person discussion guarantees
a response whereas emails can be lost, ignored, or forgotten. I am excited for the
opportunity to work on these goals in the future and continue to develop my knowledge of
information technology.
