I have done architecture work for a long time and my specialty is enterprise architecture. I also analyse processes, information, and the necessary IT-solution quickly and efficiently. Architecture modelling tools and methods are familiar to me. Especially their roll-out in a controlled fashion, so that they provide visible benefits, and time is not wasted on wrestling with details. I live in Kerava and I spend my spare time with my dogs.
During almost 20 years in IT industry, I have done mostly architecture, process development and requirement management. I am very familiar with facilitation of workshops. I am TOGAF ® 9 Certified and I have worked with many EA frameworks. I have done sales through-out my career especially currently as CEO.
During my long architecture career in the IT management of a large company, I have gathered extensive experience in various architecture domains and deep insight into the challenges of architecture practice development. The different levels and time perspectives of architecture are also familiar to me: from supporting the implementation of strategy to actual agile development of digital services. For me, the most rewarding aspect of architecture work is modelling and analysing large entities, bringing order to chaos.
In my six years of experience in IT, I have been involved in several activities from architecture work to all stages of service management. I have over two years of experience in enterprise architecture, of which I've spent the majority as chief architect of a public sector organisation. I have also participated in the development of wider domain architectures. In addition to architecture work, I have experience across the IT service lifecycle, from the elaboration of strategy to day-to-day service operation.
During my 10 years in the IT industry, I have mainly been involved with architecture. I have acted as an architect, project manager or team lead in a multitude of projects within both consulting and research. My PhD thesis explains the enterprise architecture benefit realization process.
Over my 25-year career I have done many things, but already early on, I noticed that managing the whole and modelling were my strengths. After a long experience in analysis, modeling and design, it was natural to move on to enterprise architecture and quality management. It is wonderful to see team members and coachees get new insights into their work.
I have been in IT most of my career, managing IT-divisions and developing numerous information systems in the telecommunication industry. My 20 years of experience of enterprise architecture, IT architecture and related processes have made the tools and methods of enterprise architecture well known to me, as well as the data and analytics sector.
