Why I do what I do!

What is it that fuels each of us? that thing that drives us, motivates us and energizes us to be creative, innovative and different. For me, is has always been the creative application of any type of technology in a way that has made a difference.

With this blog, I am aiming to create such a difference, an awareness and a shift in thinking in the way we approach technology as IT professionals. Often times, it is not the thing that we manage that causes inefficiencies, but rather the way we approach it and a mainstream view is not necessarily the most efficient.

Technology has evolved over the years but efficiency and proactivity has not necessarily kept pace. The age old problem of sprawl and lack of insight has always plagued us IT professionals, always diminishing those initial efficiencies gained whenever a new piece of technology has been implemented. “Time and Sprawl waits for no man”....Lawrance Reddy
