DoIT would like to recognize our own Jeremy Gude for receiving the Employee of the Quarter (EOQ) award. The EOQ program recognizes the outstanding qualities and contributions of employees towards departmental and institutional goals and mission. Gude is a Specialist/Database Administrator for DoIT, who has been with DoIT for 15 years.
Gude was presented his award on January 12th at a department all-staff meeting. Gude will receive a check for $500, a special parking space, and one day of administration leave.
“Jeremy is the model employee and a pleasure to have on our team.”
Todd Haddaway, Director for Database & Identity Management, nominated Gude for the award. “Jeremy is the model employee and a pleasure to have on our team.” said Haddaway.
Gude’s most recent accomplishment was completing a project to real-time replicate production student, finance, and HR Peoplesoft databases. Gude was able to reduce the risk of lost data in the event of a computer room disaster, from up to one day to less than 5 minutes.
Stacy Long, Director for DoIT, said, “Jeremy has been instrumental in tuning PeopleSoft Processes so that they complete in a timely fashion.”
“...a major asset to our division and his work ethic is second to none.”
Other accomplishments include working to process more transactions within PeopleSoft. In the Finance department, one job was taking up to 12 hours to finish but thanks to Gude working diligently on finding database changes to make, the job now runs in under an hour.
“Gude is a major asset to our division and his work ethic is second to none.” said Haddaway, While having a broad knowledge of each technology in our group, his knowledge is also deep.”
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is another key area where Gude works, where he was instrumental in architecting a robust deployment model, increasing reliability and speed to changing system needs.
When not working at DoIT, Jeremy has coached his daughter’s lacrosse teams and currently participates with his son’s swim team, while also being a member of his community pool board.
Congratulations to Jeremy Gude on his EOQ award!
