CTGlobal’s cloud business is booming as more organizations migrate from on-premises, and need help to ensure their IT costs and security do not spin out of control in the process. Martin Henriksen joins the team to strengthen delivery of the cloud team’s Azure Governance solutions.
Copenhagen, Denmark – October 4, 2019 – CTGlobal, the IT consultancy and development company focused on cloud, data center, security and enterprise client management, and five times Microsoft Gold Partner, today announced Martin Henriksen as new Senior Consultant for Data Center focusing on Azure, in Denmark.
9 in 10 of companies, who attempt cloud migration relying on their in-house IT competencies, fail. They often realize quite early on in their cloud journey that they are losing control over their software costs and IT security, and decide to call in external experts to get the migration project back on the road and regain control.
CTGlobal, who over the past three years has established itself as a best-in-class Azure Governance consultancy, is feeling the demand for cloud migration expertise from organizations across Europe and North America.
To meet customer needs the company have just signed on Martin Henriksen as Senior Consultant focusing on Azure technologies:
“We are very pleased to welcome Martin to the team. We are seeing a huge demand for Azure expertise from our customers, and Martin is just what we need, to be able to help them– he comes with an extensive background in Microsoft core infrastructure and has honed his professional skills in Azure to a very high level. On top of that, he’s a very likeable person, which is also an important quality in a consultant,” says Brian Fahrenholtz, CTGlobal Managing Consultant and Partner, about the decision to hire Martin Henriksen.
Martin Henriksen will be working out of the CTGlobal headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Azure brilliance and technology focus
Martin Henriksen comes to CTGlobal with 20 years of experience as a consultant in Azure, Office 365/Exchange, and core infrastructure components, and is certified in a wide range of Microsoft and Citrix technologies.
“I am very pleased to be part of CTGlobal. There are two main reasons why I wanted to work here: One, that this team is home to some of the most brilliant minds in Azure technology specifically, and in Microsoft infrastructure configuration generally. It’s an exceptional professional opportunity to be able to work side-by-side with these guys, absorb their insight and bounce ideas off of them. The other reason is that, as a business, CTGlobal has had the courage and the understanding of the market to make a proactive choice to specialize and focus on specific technologies, and do those really well – most other consultancies try to do a bit of everything, and thus become masters of nothing,” explains Martin Henriksen about his motivation to join CTGlobal.
Complex IT requires expert help
The reason most organizations are unsuccessful in their cloud migration efforts is not that their internal IT team isn’t smart enough. It’s because cloud migration is incredibly complex and many of concepts and interdependencies are opaque. Consequently, IT professionals who do not live and breathe cloud migration every day of their professional life have no chance of predicting and planning for all of the circumstances, events, set-backs and issues that will inevitably occur in a project of such complexity and scale.
Martin Henriksen joins CTGlobal to contribute to deliver CTGlobal’s Azure Governance offering that addresses cloud issues for the company’s customers. The cloud projects are typically based on assessments of corporate policies, and are anchored in the five cloud governance disciplines that are must-have requirements in any successful cloud migration: Cost management; security baseline; resource consistency; identity baseline and deployment acceleration. The offering includes analysis, design, documentation, implementation and validation, based on best practices and adapted to the organization.
