About Pouria

Pouria is an outstanding technical specialist and solutions architect. His combination of deep technical know how in both On-Premise and Cloud solutions is paired with many years of experience in organizations with critical social functions where the demands on availability (24/7/365) are among the highest in Sweden, and where applications and systems simply cannot become unavailable.
Pouria therefore maintains a strong focus on security, and at the same time not compromising usability.
