Nicholas Pablonis, a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert with over 30 years of networking and technical engineering experience has joined Ovatio Technologies, a Microsoft cloud consulting and enterprise IT staffing company. Mr. Pablonis will be working directly with both midsize and enterprise customers on their cloud, hybrid, and on-premises infrastructures.
“A large portion of companies aren’t ready for cloud-only,” states Nicholas. “They are excited about what a pure cloud infrastructure could provide, but the reality is many go with a hybrid environment – at least to get started – for their cloud migration. There are many factors to consider: cost; governance; security; and more. I have a deep knowledge of operations and therefore sensitive to where weaknesses exist today and what can realistically be performed first to mitigate those risks given a company’s resources. At the end of the day, I’m focused on guiding our customers to make choices that fit their unique needs.”
Chuck Salvo, Chief Digital Information Officer, finds Nicholas to be the ideal talent Ovatio was looking for in the growing company. “Many institutions continue to struggle with older infrastructure and systems integration. They want to use applications like Power Platform’s Power BI, Flows and more but are hindered by legacy systems. Nicholas, with his years of hands-on experience in consulting, is familiar with the systems of the past and of today – he offers a deeper wealth of knowledge that is rare to find.”
When Nicholas is not behind his computer screen supporting a customer, you can find him riding his motorcycle for numerous charitable causes or staying active in the gym or boxing ring.
