“What we regard as the workplace is undergoing dramatic change as digital technologies enable new ways of working, new business insights, higher levels of productivity and whole new categories of work. Digital technologies will open new business opportunities and threaten existing business activities. We are entering into a time of unprecedented technology-precipitated change.” -- Graham Chastney
Graham Chastney is a solution architect for DXC Technology in the United Kingdom. With over 30 years of experience in information technologies, Graham is highly skilled in the delivery of infrastructure services and is regarded as a subject matter expert in workplace offerings.
Graham’s deep technical knowledge helps him quickly assimilate solutions and identify potential problems, especially in delivery assurance and solution reviews. He has the soft skills needed to gain the confidence of those working in the environment being reviewed, and to communicate with stakeholders including customers.
Over the last three years, Graham has been a member of the solution governance organization, providing strategic direction for large-scale solutions. As a member of the Solution Strategy Practice he has worked across the Build-Sell-Deliver life cycle, aligning solutions to current patterns and facilitating innovative architecture patterns to meet client needs. This is a global role across all offerings and all industries, which gives him a unique position to influence innovation across domains.
To overcome the challenge of application updates in a live environment, Graham developed an approach using virtual application delivery that enables applications to be delivered to, and removed from, a device without affecting the configuration of the device operating environment. This significantly reduces the risk of deployment and, as a result, increases flexibility.
Graham regards mentoring and coaching as a key part of his role as a lead technologist. He is the founder of the Technology Perspectives blog, where Graham and other experts share their perspectives on technical matters.
