Matt Zaske

University of Minnesota
St. Cloud, Minnesota Area
I have over 20 years of broad IT experience including fleet/desktop systems management (Windows and Mac), server administration (Linux and Windows), and web/native applications architecture and development. Theatre nerd, mustache aficionado, storyteller, technology grief counselor, governance/process geek, diplomat, father of two, and jack of many trades.

My last ten years have been spent in higher education within the University of Minnesota system. I manage a system campus workstation and server fleet as a consumer of/in partnership with our system-wide IT service offerings ("not a ConfigMan admin, but play one on TV"). I am also an automation engineer for data transport and business operations between enterprise services and tertiary systems and/or end users.

My personal drive at the office has most recently been to lead the change to a more DevOps based operating philosophy/culture. "Automate All The Things," "Fail Often, Recover Quickly," or even "Hey, Could We At Least Script This Out?"
