Techie Tuesday: A Conversation with Hunter Lynne

Techie Tuesday introduces you to a technical team member at Onix and gives you insight into how they got started in technology and what keeps them in the field.

This is an ongoing series to provide you with a sneak peek into what it takes to work in technology. 

Hunter Lynne, Cloud Adoption Practice Leader, is our latest guest. We’re happy to share more about what he does at Onix and how he helps our customers.

What is Your Role at Onix?

I develop and promote solutions and standards that improve the technology journey for our customers — and transform how they work — while creating a predictable environment for Onix’s internal teams to deliver solutions that help our customers succeed in the cloud.

Specifically, my roles and responsibilities include building go-to-market solutions for cloud adoption, developing templates to streamline technology delivery, sales and SA training, creating new solution offerings and meeting with customers about best practices for adopting the cloud.

What Makes You Excited to Come to Work Each Day?

At Onix, we don't just solve technology problems - we solve business problems. And the bigger the problem, the more fun we have solving it.

We like taking a hard look at the customer issue and then rely on lots of years of experience in both consulting and non-consulting roles to help the customer improve their business and achieve their objectives using the cloud. This customer success is what motivates me every day.

Tell Us About Your Favorite Project.

This particular project involved a large, private company that had about 20 Amazon Web Services (AWS) accounts. They needed help with governance and security. We were able to build a roadmap that laid out the business, governance and technology steps to improve compliance in the cloud. With our assistance, they successfully secured and protected their data.

What Do You Like to Do Outside of Work?

Before I had kids, and when they were younger, I used to surf and play golf. But now that they are older, they’ve distracted me from those activities.

Now my free time is spent volunteering, working in my yard and going to church.

Share Something You Wish People in the Industry Knew.

I want everyone to know how important a sound cloud adoption framework is to transform their organization.

A cloud adoption framework encompasses what you need to know to accelerate a cloud journey. This includes documentation, best practices and tools that are proven successful. It’s a literal game-changer.

Any Advice for Someone Looking to Do What You Do?

First and foremost, understanding technology is important, but if you can’t communicate with business leaders and translate their priorities into actionable plans in the cloud, then take some time to learn this.

It will be invaluable to your career in technology.

Anything Else You'd Like to Share with Our Readers?

A fun fact that I like to tell people is how at 6’4” tall, I’m the shortest of my two brothers. Also, another family fact is that I’ve known my wife since I was 4 years old. She and I grew up on the same street.
