About

Barry Tripp – Founder & CIO (Chief Ideas Officer)

Taking Care Of Canadian Business (TCCB) is a disruption innovator helping Canadian businesses evolve efficiently, in a world of rapid change and challenge. In addition to Chief Ideas Officer (CIO), Barry is a Data Cloud Visioneer and a Trusted Advisor here in Canada uncovering specific needs and identifying simple solutions to complex problems along journeys of Digital Transformation.

TCCB is attracted to global leadership in powering next-generation technology decisions. The need for Trusted Advisors grew from the complexity and confusion in the IT marketplace. Trust Advisors act as an extension of IT organizations providing expertise to help these organizations execute smart decisions at the speed of transformational change. Trusted Advisors leverage a “powered by data” approach which is based on research, unique insights and empirical evidence. It is packaged in an online toolkit that acts as the Swiss Army Knife for Next Gen Technology. You are welcome to schedule a test drive here on this site.

TCCB removes complexity, simplifies and streamlines the solution space and creates “Buyer Visions” that form the basis for a digital transformation destination.

Barry graduated from the University of Waterloo earning a Bachelors degree in Mathematics/Computer Science and Business Administration from Wilfrid Laurier University just down the road. He started his career in a technical role as a Systems Engineer and quickly embraced an affinity to Information Technology Solution Sales. To fulfill this goal, Barry worked at IBM, Honeywell Information Systems, Groupe Bull, Bell Canada, Stratus, Genesys, Sun Microsystems, Teradata, Edgeworx Solutions and Tata Communications. Barry has been privileged to help Canadian Companies, both large and small, across most industry sectors, domestically and globally. His most valuable skill is active listening and his ability to understand and relate to customer challenges in a way that he becomes the client and Trusted Advisor.

Here are the TCCB areas of focus:

  • Simplicity
  • Defining and Achieving Business Agility.
  • Mapping Digital Transformation milestones and destinations to Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
  • Global Multi-Cloud Application Connectivity.
  • Software Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN)
  • Contact Centre as a Service (CCaaS)
  • UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service)
  • Managed Security Services (MSS)
  • Work From Home (WFH) first-hand experiences and best practices.

In addition, one of Barry’s past times is exploring the intersection of information technology and music. They say that people who love Mathematics will likely do well in Music. Barry confirmed this with friend David Wright, a retired Mathematics Professor at Washington University in St. Louis and also a Music Arrangement genius. To this end, don’t be surprised to find sprinkles of Canadian musical references and analogies on this TCCB site. It all starts at the TCCB Story page.
