Today’s featured member, Ekardris, is an IT consultant in Seattle. His expertise in network infrastructure, problem management, and ITIL, and he carries that knowledge and passion into his consulting work:

The notion that IT strategy is separate from the business strategy has become a legacy concept. Management has realized that technology is not just integral to success, but actually drives the way companies pursue their business vision, goals and strategies….My expertise is in IT infrastructure, my focus and interest is in integrating the technical architecture with the organizational vision.
