Words of Wisdom
Be prepared. (I was in the Boy Scouts.)
As a Technical Architect at Sundog, I have the opportunity to help a number of our clients determine and shape the landscape of their system architecture. It’s honestly one of my favorite parts of the job. Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of different types of implementations. And the more we see, the more patterns start to emerge. We get to see what works really well - and what can leave room for improvement.
Different departments use different systems to work with the same or similar information. You may even have purchased other smaller companies and have to shoehorn their systems in to work with yours. All of these types of scenarios create inefficiencies and inaccuracies, which cost your company money. Nobody wants to spend money on wasteful issues like that, right?
What do I love about working at Sundog? The tough challenges that our clients bring us, not to mention the way Sundoggers challenge ourselves. Around here, we’re all obsessed with quality and the drive to make our clients heroes in everything we do. And as a Systems Architect, that means I get to do some really cool things.
I have been around technology for a long time – just about as long as I can remember. Back when I started computing, the concept of user experience (UX) wasn’t even a thing. You knew the commands to tell your computer what to do. And if you didn’t know a specific one, you’d have a way of finding it. Soon after, graphical user interfaces (GUI) came to be, and UX became vital even before people really knew what to call it. Just like today, everybody was looking for the most pleasing way to present information – and trying to make every action a little easier.
It’s safe to say that the customer is the lifeblood of any business. Without customers buying your products or using your services, your business would cease to exist. That’s why it’s so important to engage with your customers and provide them with personal journeys tailored to their personas. And the best way to start? Use the platform preferred most by your customers.
