Welcome to Ian-Stanford.co.uk! Please have a look at my Java programming blog and Joomla! blog.  I worked with these technologies in a previous role.  I am now working more with VB6 and Microsoft.NET.  Here is my blog: Microsoft.NET.

I am a Systems Developer/IT Technical expert based in Lincolnshire.

I hold an honours degree in Business Information Systems from the University of East Anglia Norwich (2000-2003) and I have nearly nine years experience working in IT Technical Support/systems support since graduating from university. I developed a new Content Management System (website) for Newark and Sherwood Homes in my previous role.

I am currently working at Lincolnshire Police as an ICT Developer; developing and supporting a system that allows the organisation to integrate its business systems together to ensure that it meets the requirements set by the Management of Police Information (MOPI). The system is written in Microsoft.NET and integrates over 25 systems on various platforms e.g. Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, ASP.NET, Classic ASP, Java etc. The purpose of the system is to provide one interface for data cleansing and also the review and disposal of information.

I am a competent Analyst who can identify business problems and define user requirements, which can then be translated into a computerised solution.  I realise the importance of aligning an organisations IT processes with its business processes to ensure that business objectives are achieved.
