Joshua Hyles

Cloud Migration Specialist

As a Cloud Migration Specialist, I spend most of my time migrating workloads to the Azure cloud from on-prem and other cloud providers. It is my job to ensure the compatibility and functionality of systems work in their new home in the cloud. With a focus on IaaS deployments, customers rely on my skills to make the transition to the cloud.

What is your ultimate goal when working with customers?

My ultimate goal is to prepare the customer with a migration plan that will be smooth and successful when moving to the cloud. Educating customers on how their systems will function in the cloud is part of a complete and successful migration.

Joseph Baqaeen

Practice Lead - Azure

I work hard to establish a trusting relationship with my customers. I strive for this by coming up with solutions tailored specifically for them and providing advice when needed, whether or not it’s directly related to the issue at hand.

What is your ultimate goal when working with customers?

I am a problem-solver and take on the challenges that customers are facing and provide them with creative and workable solutions. To ensure I fully understand their main problem, I let them talk freely about their issues and what they want and need. When presenting solutions to address their challenges, I will also provide the rationale behind the approach.

Favourite thing to do outside of work

I love playing tennis and enjoy practicing Aikido. I love reading about philosophy and logic. I also have a big interest in languages, word play and paradox. As a result, I have a dry sense of humour.

Favourite dessert

Tiramisu, which I never share.

Traci Hardnett

System Administrator II

I am resolution-oriented and empathetic to the client’s challenge and the adverse effect it can have on their business. I strive to resolve each issue as efficiently as possible to have a minimum impact on our clients. The key to this approach is to understand as much about the problem or inquiry as possible to prevent any unnecessary delay on the path to resolution.

Favourite dessert

As a baker, I like any dessert that I can recreate in my kitchen. Still working on flan, it’s tricky!

Fun fact

I’ve never met a stranger.
I participate in missionary work domestically and abroad (Kenya).
Went on African Safari, fed a rhino, got up close with a lioness and tried to avoid an adolescent elephant. It was great!

Ben Kennedy

Lead Architect - Network

Puzzles take many forms; such as solutioning for a potential customer, or solving some underlying network issue for an existing customer. Solving puzzles is what gets me out of bed in the morning.

What is your ultimate goal with working with customers?

What is your ultimate goal when working with customers?

When working with customers, I aim to take them on a journey of discovery, strategy and planning. Just like anything in life, the preparation of an event is often the most challenging part, and my goal is to make that as easy as possible for our customers.
