Chris Haddad

Chief Architect at Karux LLC.


Chris leads and advises solution architecture teams building API-first and container-drive microservices exhibiting Cloud native capabilities. By using reference architecture diagrams, pattern blueprints, infrastructure decision worksheets, and agile project templates, he assists teams who are reshaping architecture, refreshing technology, rebuilding team interactions, and reinventing opportunity.

Recent projects include design, build, and evangelism for containerized hospitality microservices, underlying container service platforms, microservice frameworks, integration templates, and API developer portals.  

Prior to founding Karux Consulting, Chris ran technology evangelism at WSO2, an open source API and integration platform vendor. He previously led research and consulting teams at Burton Group and Gartner advising Fortune 500 enterprise organizations and technology infrastructure vendors on adoption strategies, architecture, product selection, governance, and organizational alignment.

Back in the turn of the century (1998-2001), Chris’ team built Platform as a Service (PaaS), Single Sign On (SSO), and Service Oriented Infrastructure (SOA) infrastructure supporting the first human resources and benefits management application delivered as a Cloud Native service.  The Software as a Service (SaaS) application was delivered to thousands of clients, and lives on as Automatic Data Processing’s mid-size company SaaS offering.
