Speaker bio

Having experience of 5+ years in the IT and worked with Infosys, Cognizant and now The Economist Intelligence Unit, I have the understanding of how system works, how the Servers/applications/DB architectures are made and where they can be improved. Migrating to AWS was one of the challenging steps for our organization and I am glad that I was a part of it. All these years in the field have given me combination of skills and experience, as well as a sense of where the industry has been and where it is going to be in the future.
