Christopher Lundy
Chief Principal Architect

PROFILE
Chris Lundy is a Chief Principal Consultant for Service Stratum and is our founder. Chris has been instrumental in designing a Service Oriented Solution Implementation Methodology that has been used by various organizations throughout the world. Chris has the ability to "see the big picture" and visualize the future state. Once identified he can develop a roadmap to transform the enterprise and modernize its services, technologies and intellectual assets.

Chris has studied continually in his 20+ year technical journey working in research facilities, intellectual prototyping, communications, energy, marketing, e-commerce, finance, healthcare, insurance and the services industries. He is constantly obtaining certifications and learning new methodologies and design paradigms and that is what makes Chris so valuable to our clients. Through his continual education, he is able to see patterns in the various industries and sectors and is able to anticipate change and adapt his clients. His key certifications include Service Oriented Architecture, Model Driven Architecture and UML Solution Design.

Serving as a principal architect, Chris has led many multi-million dollar initiatives and realignment projects to help transform "good" organizations into "great" organizations. His technical leadership and writing skills make him valuable because he can design and conceptualize a solution but also document, lead and teach resources on the "why's" and "how's".

Chris is assigned to provide enterprise level solutions and strategies to executive leadership so they have the information needed to make a clear and informed decision. As part of this work effort, Chris also performs an assessment of the overall business architecture and delivers a business, process, service and technical roadmap necessary to complete the transformation. Specializing in integration, cloud and "as a Service" solutions, Chris provides a modern, simple and easy to maintain architecture and develops training and hand off materials so your organization can successfully maintain the solutions and strategies.

Many organizations don't realize that they need Chris' skillset because the IT industry views the separation of strategies and technical solutions as the norm. Chris challenges this concept and demonstrates that the strategies, processes and procedures your organization develops DRIVES the solutions, services and technical architectures that run your business. Chris not only identifies gaps in the transitions of architectures but also designs the architecture, that is a solution and transformation model, necessary to implement the architectures. Once designed he leads the team(s) through delivery and support. Chris is a valuable asset to any company and as a leased consultant he will help your organization.
