The Art and Science of Well-Architected Enterprise and Solution Architecture

English Intermediate Architecture

Most organizations start their journey on Azure from doing proof of concepts, or migrating their workloads. And when organizations see the benefits of using Azure, they leverage more services. Very quickly this turns into a chaotic situation for architecture, engineering, operations, finance, security teams who want to ensure consistency across adoption of Azure. In this session, we will discuss the art and science of what it takes to architect both enterprise landscape and solution architecture to ensure the right adoption of Azure.

Most of my professional time is spent in translating business problems to technical solutions through architecture and delivery and strategizing delivery of large scale projects. I am an advocate of change and am responsible for successful implementation of enterprise-wide transformations at our customers leveraging Hybrid Cloud and Artificial Intelligence capabilities. I have good experience working with customers in FSI, Healthcare, Education, Telco, Mining and Manufacturing industries and have worked in India, Australia, UK and ASEAN countries.
