My name is Kyle Davies and I work for CDW UK as a Solutions Architect. I am involved in theIMG_1515 assessment, design and business requirement mapping for a whole range of products focused around the aspects of virtualization (EUC/Workspace and DC), cloud, Data Centre efficiency and smarter working. Typically in my role I rarely get involved with on site delivery of solutions and supporting, but I am always available to assist where necessary. When I do get aligned to projects, it is generally to own and oversee the delivery of that project and become a project owner/technical design authority for escalation. I have a home lab and keep on top of as much of the technology i can, to ensure when i propose a solution to a customer i know it will work.

I see myself as a “bedroom” developer as I started my IT career initially as a developer for VB6 and VB.Net applications, of which i have kept my coding skills as up to date, as possible. (its great being able to automate tasks and to understand/appreciate scripts even in this role) broadening the languages to C++, C#, PHP, ASP.NET, CSS, HTML, Python, Swift etc.
