Solutioned LLC was founded on a simple idea – take two of the most powerful technical disciplines to emerge in recent times and combine them into a unified approach to problem solving.
Data science and enterprise architecture are each potent tools in their own right capable of transforming businesses. However, when taken together and applied to problems it becomes possible to unlock next level results.
Hello, I’m Chris.
I was first exposed to data science in the form of machine learning in the late 1990s while working as an engineer. I had the privilege of being involved in a project to migrate a mainframe system to a client-server architecture. Machine learning was a critical capability being introduced on the client-server platform. I was absolutely fascinated by two things from that experience. First, with the idea that machines can infer new knowledge from historical data. Second, that enterprise architecture can transform businesses.
Since then I have pursued my passion and spent my professional and academic careers either directly involved in some dimension of data science, or studying some aspect of data science when not immersed through a job role. The most recent years of my career have been spent in technical leadership roles as an enterprise architect where I held portfolios of responsibility for designing and delivering business transformative projects.
Aside from expertise in data science and enterprise architecture, I also have a strong background in software development and have worked extensively with DevOps and CI/CD automation. I am a strong proponent of using automation to do repetitive non-differentiating tasks. I believe businesses should focus on delivering key differentiating services to delight their customers, and technology should be a key enabler.
I also believe in leveraging the cloud. I put strong emphasis on shifting the responsibility of maintaining infrastructure to cloud providers while businesses focus on using that infrastructure to deliver value.
I started Solutioned LLC to help businesses leverage technology to succeed by understanding and deriving more value from their data and infrastructure.
