Getting To Know: Jack Chen


Jack Chen is a Senior Solutions Architect and Full Stack developer. Let’s get to know a little more about him.

What are the key experiences that have shaped your career to date?

During university I tried a lot of different courses, and discovered that I was good at and had a passion for Computer Science. During university I was very interested in hardware, however after graduating my interest moved to software.

What are the biggest opportunities facing your key sector in the next 5 years?

I have worked on so many interesting projects crossing from CMS, e-commerce, J2ME/IOS/Android apps, integration solution to AWS cloud, BI/Data vitualisation projects.

I am still looking for the most exciting project and I believe it will come one day. If I have to say the most interesting project so far it might be the current project we are doing -- the Titan project for Bioceuticals - this digital transformation project will help the company finish business transformation using the cutting-edge digital technologies.

What are the biggest challenges facing that sector to capitalise on those opportunities in the next 5 years?

I have very broader interests cross from digital transformation, CMS, E-commerce, APP, integration to cloud and BI/AI. There are so many opportunities there. The biggest one will be AI in the next 5, 10 and 20 years. 

For challenges - Lack of vision and concrete implementation methods will be the biggest challenges on AI fields. When everyone can talk about AI and deep learning, the AI topic become a cheap gossip. 

What's your prediction for the biggest driver of change in business over the next 5 years?

I would say it will be cloud and open source over the next 5 years. More and more companies will choose cloud and open source solutions in digital side.
