I am currently working as a Senior Field Consultant. I started my professional career in 1999 in India. In the year 1999 I decided to transition from the Retail Industry to hard core Information Technology, which was always my strength and desire. I realised my strengths and keen interest when I worked on Dbase III Plus a few years back but due to various constraints I could not pursue my career at that point in time. I have worked in various capacities in the fields of Software Technology, as Systems administrator, Systems Support Engineer, Implementations Engineer and Senior Implementation Engineer. Currently, I am based as Senior Field Consultant for a Microsoft Gold Partner in Oxford, U.K.
I am certified in various disciplines

I devote my free time to the technology communities. I believe knowledge grows by sharing and I love to share my knowledge. I believe it is important to be passionate and really enjoy whatever you do. I am also the founder and maintain Ahmedgroup (http://www.ahmedgroup.co.uk)
I never gave it a thought why Microsoft decided to use some very peculiar names for:
Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)
Exchange Routing Group (DWBGZMFD01QNBJR)
I was going through the updated documentation for Exchange 2007 SP1 @ TechNet and I came across the above mentioned names once again and maybe I had too much time at hand so I decided to look for the reason behind this and I am impressed what I discovered.
