I’m also a passionate believer in ‘don’t just do it – teach it too’, and I’m a proud part of many teaching initiatives for our architect and technical community across Kyndryl. I have the badges and the scars, and proud to be an Open Group Distinguished Architect and an – this is a critical foundation for ourselves and our clients and I will be ensuring this profession evolves with the rapid changes in technology we see all around us.
