Key Quotes by Patrick Kennedy

    • “When you do a custodian interview, nine times out of ten its not what you think… For example, we focus on the construction industry. A lot of times these construction projects are out in rural areas that don’t have the best connectivity and so when users can’t store documents on a file share back at the mothership a lot of times they find the path of least resistance to store their own data.”
    • “I think its important for a lit support person at a law firm to have general IT knowledge, a little bit of networking, a lit bit of database, experience with different applications that cover the whole OSI model from hosted platforms to ERP systems to text messages.”
    • “For me, the benefit [of helping the other side] is I get the data from the opposing side nice and clean the way I want it so I can go home at the end of the day and not stay up editing load files and that sort of thing.”
