Founder & Snr DevOps Engineer
Eric Adjei-Boampong is the founder and the lead DevOps Engineer of BayksCloud Consultants LLC, an IT consulting firm that helps companies of all sizes to implement DevOps automation to deliver software quickly to the market and also migrate traditional data centers into the cloud using the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform.
Eric discovered his passion for IT when he started trying to make money online with internet marketing around 2003. He shortly found out that, in order to make money online, it was no brainer to have his own website and not a cookie cutter website which gives money to the top tier owner of the sites. Eric couldn’t afford to pay for a website since it was very expensive around those times so he decided to build his own website through self-study. This is where the journey into his IT career begun.
Apart from building websites for small businesses and organizations, Eric has his own website about his country of origin, Ghana (www.travel-to-discover-ghana.com). He has an in-depth knowledge about Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and web analytics. Now, he enjoys blogging about DevOps Automation and Cloud Computing on this website.
In 2008, Eric joined a Virginia based consulting firm, Miinfosys LLC as a Configuration Analyst working on diverse range of sectors and markets. His hard work was recognized by many of his colleagues which led him to getting referred to Western Union Business Solutions in Washington, DC as a Senior Software Build & Release Engineer in 2012. Eric was an integral part of many projects like the Dodd-Frank Compliance, World Bank Acuity-OFAC and GlobalPay (the Western Union Business Solutions official website) just to name a few.
Before devoting his work fulltime to BayksCloud Consultants, in 2014, a Florida based company, Qpay Inc. (now Incomm Agents Solutions) brought in the expertise of Eric to serve as a Lead DevOps Engineer to implement an End-to-End DevOps (continuous integration and deployment) infrastructure into their software delivery pipeline, utilizing cutting edge technologies and tools. The purpose of this implementation was to deploy and release software more often and above all, error free in an automated manner.
Eric holds a Master’s in Information Technology with a specialization in Security from Florida International University, Miami FL in 2017, an Associate’s degree in Computer Network Systems from ITT Tech Springfield, Virginia 2011 and a Bachelors in Agriculture Mechanization from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana in 2001.
Amongst his certifications are;
- Certified AWS Solutions Architect.
- Certified AWS SysOps Administrator.
- ITIL Foundation.
- Professional Scrum Master.
- Certified Cisco Network Administrator (CCNA).
In addition to being a positioning consultant, Eric is a sports freak. He likes to play tennis at least one day and workout four days in a week. He also owns a soccer team based in Virginia, Stockholm Villa FC and helps in the organization of annual charity soccer events to raise funds for the disabled in the community. Eric enjoys timeout with the family at the pool or at the beach whenever he can.
