Q&A with Arnel Sinchongco
- Tell us about your background and how you got into technology.
- I became interested in application development in high school and attended classes to learn how to program. Upon graduating, I started my IT career working for a government contractor, helping to build a logistics application while attending college. Eventually I moved on to manage infrastructure and backoffice applications, particularly networking and databases for a variety of organizations. As my exposure to all facets of technology increased, I soon realized that my expertise was in developing enterprise solutions and IT strategies. That experience has led to my roles as an enterprise architect and innovation leader.
- What is your role at WWT?
- As a Multicloud Consultant, I work with our customers to navigate their way through cloud journeys. I help them understand the value of developing a comprehensive multicloud strategy and architectural framework in order to pave the way to their target cloud platform while reducing the need for potential re-work and re-architecture. Moving to the cloud is not easy, but I am here to help them with a clearly defined methodology.
