Solutions Architect

You're probably reading this on your smartphone or tablet. Maybe even a Mac or PC. Imagine what would happen if your tech broke, fell into the water, or crashed and stopped working? Panic. Scrambling. How do I fix it? What will it cost? FOMO sets in. Uncertainty about something that you touch, depend on, and practically co-exist with every day.
