Ensono’s Solution Architects are seasoned technologists focused on pushing forward technical innovation and transformation within the solution sets we provide. They work closely with our clients to understand their business drivers and corporate objectives. Through collaboration with internal technologists, SAs create solutions that drive value for our clients.
