My Name is Chan Ekanayake, and I am a seasoned technologist & business leader with over 15+ years of enterprise technology, technology strategy, technology sales and leadership expertise across various business environments.
Technology is my passion and I dedicate most my time outside of work that is not spent with family (or playing sports) on learning new enterprise technologies and being able to understand their true business value. While I am familiar with most enterprise technology solutions out there, I take a special interest in Software Defined Technologies over the others. I’ve always believed SDx would be the future of enterprise IT & therefore naturally would be giving lot more attention to in terms of the contents I post here, ranging from covering Software Defined Data Center (on-premises) solutions to various Public Cloud platforms such as AWS and Microsoft Azure.
I tend to be quite active within the technology community and typically take part in most of the key vendor events throughout the year. I am also fortunate enough to be a part of the Tech Field Day delegate community for my good friend Stephen Foskett.

I’ve started this blog site with two primary aims, mainly to use this as a knowledge gathering portal for my own use going forward as well as to contribute back to the community.
I don’t tend to do paid blogs or promote anyone’s technologies in my blog for financial gain. I write what I think based often on my own first hand experience and where its not possible, based on tangible evidence or facts available from other sources. They are purely my own thoughts that I will put down on my own will, irrespective of my employer’s relationship with some of those vendors as a solutions provider and a value added reseller.
