What’s your work-life philosophy?
I truly enjoy what I do at UDT. The pace is so fast and keeping up with the rapid rate of innovation in cloud technology sometimes makes it difficult to set boundaries. But at the end of the day, family time is very important. When I walk in the door from work (when I’m not traveling), my kids don’t care about cloud or computers or anything else technology related.
What do you like best about working at UDT?
The pool of smart team members I am surrounded by that constantly challenge me to be at my best.
How is UDT’s cloud offering unique and different?
UDT’s skill set and experience as a cloud service provider makes us uniquely qualified as a partner to help customers in their journey to the cloud. The cloud model is completely changing the way companies have been operating IT for the last 20 or 30 years, so we aim to reduce complexity and make the transition simpler.
How does utilizing the cloud make client’s lives easier?
Cloud is really a transformative model that creates new solutions and outcomes that extend far beyond the technology world. Cloud solutions benefit the environment, medicine, science and other important areas that improve our lives.
How does UDT’s cloud offering support clients throughout the entire technology life-cycle?
Adopting cloud technology is a journey, and UDT can help guide the customer through the full life cycle of planning/assessment, enablement/migration and operations/support.
