Inside Insync – Roland Paix

Today we meet: 

Roland Paix, Senior Consultant

Time with Insync: January 2016

Previous notable time in IT industry/customer/vendor: Been working in IT since 1998.  My first job in IT was with a record company in London.  Poor pay was far outweighed by the perks!

What are your best skills for your role?

An ability to think through scenarios to identify impacts and outcomes.

Attention to detail and good communication.

What do you like about your role? 

Working with great people and getting my head around complex environments so that I can provide the right solution.

What trends are you seeing with customers? 

The desire for simplification; to get out of complex infrastructure and into the cloud.

Companies want to make it easy for their staff to work from anywhere while at the same time having better security than they’ve ever had before.

What do you think about the opportunity for Teams for customers?  

It’s a way for them to redefine how they work; for them to move into modern communications and collaboration and away from traditional siloed apps.

Where have you used Insync core values in Insync everyday work life:

In a recent project a client wanted to do a lot of the work themselves.  Rather than leave them to it to struggle and potentially fail, I went the extra 1.6 kms to make sure they had all the info they needed and pointed out things they might otherwise have missed.  The project went smoothly and everything fell into place.


 

What do you like to do in your downtime?

In winter I go mountain biking as often as I can.  I read a lot of books and love watching movies.

I do volunteer assisting with Landmark Education programs which is very fulfilling.
