Astadia Promotes Walter Sweat to Chief Technology Officer

IT Consulting firm Astadia has announced the appointment of Walter Sweat as Chief Technology Officer. In this new role, Sweat will oversee all technology planning, operations as well as execution and report directly to company Chairman and CEO Scott G. Silk. "We're excited that Walter has accepted the challenge to be Astadia's CTO," said Silk. "In this period of time, having strong technical vision and leadership is essential to our continued growth and success." Sweat joined Astadia in 2018 and has more than 40 years of IT industry experience. Before joining Astadia, Sweat served in senior roles at GT Software and Dell. Sweat graduated from the University of Georgia, with a BBIS degree in Business Systems. "Astadia's leadership position in Mainframe Migration is an exciting place to be right now," Sweat said. "Mainframe shops are struggling to deal with the shortage of people that have experience and skills in mainframe software and hardware technologies. The cost of Mainframe platforms continues to increase year over year, partly fueled by software and hardware price increases, and the cost to get experienced mainframe technicians. With Cloud and Hybrid computing models designed to support today's organizations, the flexibility and innovation afforded the IT buyer makes the Cloud the first choice for application deployments. Astadia supports all of the popular Cloud platforms, including Azure, AWS, Oracle and Google".
