“Over the last 25 years, technology has changed the way of life completely. Before we even get out of bed, most of us reach for our phones to browse social media feeds, check our email, and view latest news headlines. This behavior has been transformational and given IT a seat at the table as organizations are coming together to deliver services back to the customer,” said Mafa Amr. “I’m looking forward to leading important conversations around data analytics, automation, DevOps, customer experience, and end-to-end application management with our clients. Windward has a stellar reputation and solid track record of helping our customers leverage their IT investments to solve their complex problems and keeping them relevant into today’s competitive landscape. I’m excited to expand our focus, especially around some of the disruptive technologies in the market today.”
