Good morning Scott, Just wanted to touch base, and see how all is going over at Abbott. I met with Brad about a week and a half ago, and he had great things to say about the job that you are doing. You are actually one of the benchmarks now of the type of person we are looking for that group. Thanks again for the great job you are doing!   -  Mark Minkin, CIR - Resource Recruiter Vendor Operations Scott has absorbed the complexity of the Abbott Business Intelligence apparatus (Autosys, JBoss, Java, PowerCenter, Informatica MDM, Informatica Data Director, PL/SQL, SOA architecture, CRM). Scott prides himself on his ability to make complex topics approachable. He explains, simplifies and documents.   -  Hubert Karst - Application Technology Manager It is with great pride that I announce Scott Krause’s promotion to Lead Systems Analyst. Scott has distinguished himself with his self-acquired Microsoft product expertise, a game plan both for professional development and project completion, a whatever-it-takes attitude to accomplishing his goals, and is being promoted two grades levels in accordance with the responsibilities he has accepted and perform within the last year. Scott’s leadership with Microsoft initiatives has been far-reaching for TSH, and his ability to envision the applications of their use within TSH products and services is creative and practical. Congratulations, Scott, on a well-deserved promotion.   -  Anne T. Smyth - President The Systems House, Inc. Everyone appreciates software that is easy to use. I approach design from an user empathetic perspective. Understanding that Effortless is an achievement not an accident. I design user centric experiences and create high-fidelity prototypes allowing the user to interact with the app before it is developed. I can quickly test new designs and identify small flaws before they become big issues.   -  Scott C. Krause Scott has taken the forward looking initiative to master the official Salesforce certification curriculum. Cloud applications and particularly Salesforce are among the fastest growing technologies within ADD, within Abbott and within the life sciences / pharma industry. By embracing Salesforce Scott has proven again that he is an effective early adopter and can align his skill growth with the needs of Abbott Laboratories.   -  Hubert Karst - Application Technology Manager It is back to awesome! Unless you quickly say otherwise, the check will be in the mail. Thank you so much for your quick attention to all the adjustments and fixes. I suspect that I will be referring some others to you. Your work is good and your fees are fair and reasonable. Thanks   -  Joel Mathews Scott’s ability to apply creative and innovative approaches to problems is well documented and thoroughly ingrained in his DNA. Scott’s forays into the unexplored have included: - User Centric Design / UX Prototyping - Inspire IT digital communications - Team Crowdsourcing - Java and PL/SQL User Exits - Release Candidate – Change Management - Informatica ETL / PCX - Salesforce / MDM API Integration feasibility   -  Hubert Karst - Application Technology Manager
