"Making the right technical decisions today is much harder. The range of technologies and solutions is vast. The architecture of those technologies is more complex. Generally, more suppliers are involved and each intends to not take the blame when technology goes wrong. My role is to help clients work through this technology and architectural complexity to make the right decisions for their needs, today and into the future."
