Distinguished Engineer - Dr. Greg Kelaart-Courtney
“The Technical Leader of the future will be a ‘Solutionist,’ an individual who understands the challenges faced by a business and can develop a comprehensive end-to-end solution that will not only alleviate our clients’ business challenges but enable them to embrace their future digital transformational needs. We will not be ‘IT Architects’ anymore but ‘Business Architects,’ who can easily fulfill the role of the clients’ ‘trusted advisor.'”
