I wrote my first line of code when I was 8. 
A few years later I made this hobby and passion into my profession. 

Over the past 27 years I have helped companies build their strategy, plan their way and over-achieve their goals using information technology.

Over the past few years, I’m on a mission to help companies utilize Cloud Computing while keeping their cost well controlled.

I’m Shahar Raz,
Welcome to Raz Technology Strategy.

“We hired Shahar to help Dealply scale before the shopping season in 2011, and have been working with him ever since. Shahar is a real devops scalability expert and cost reduction partner, but on top of that he is the kind of consultant that goes far beyond the standard commitment and dedication, always on the exact details.
