Welcome to fogplug.com, the online home of Thor Ingham and his podcast fogplug. I am a father of two wonderful boys, Marting and Erik. And I am a seasoned enterprise application integration expert with over a decade of experience in the field. Born in the United Kingdom and now living in Norway, I work as the CTO of Avella AS, an integration company based in Scandinavia. You may of met me online as Nasroht in various games. Or heard me speak in public events about the topic of enterprise application integration.
As an IBM champion for both 2022 and 2023, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the integration space. On this website, you'll find podcasts, links and articles covering various integration topics.
In addition, the fogplug podcast, hosted by me, I will offer a unique perspective on integration from a people, process and technology standpoint. Join me as I share his personal experiences and insights gained through years of working in the integration space.
Avella AS where I work during the daytime provides the resources to help you move and make your data available by applying proven enterprise integration patterns and providing great people.

As CTO in Avella AS I have created our internal Avella Academy program. This program shortens the time it takes to get started with application integration and automation as a profession. Integration and automation as a profession is something I care deeply about and so does our company.
As an extension of the Avella Academy I have also setup out internal continuous improvement program. These are run as meetups and workshops for all employees. They are structured around the services Avella provides and currently consists of 8 groups and 8 team leads that now reports to the program manager that again reports to myself. This has continuous to be a success since it’s incubation in 2017.
I enjoy public speaking and have done so on the following topics: IoT, API economy, enterprise application integration and business process automation.

Buy the best, build rest- was the motto of my first company. In the era of cloud I still believe this is true, use what is there and build as little as possible. Happy Integrating !
