I’ve worked in IT for many years now and have seen the cycle of changes that organisations and people go through when adapting to new states:  From mainframes to Raspberry Pi, assembler to java, big data centres to cloud, owner to facilitator and buy to subscribe.

It’s been a good time to be in IT and it is a good time for business to embrace the digital world and seek the competitive advantages that unlocking information can bring.

Core speaking and consultancy topics:

  • Digital business – structure, design, approach, strategy
  • Transforming IT – everything-as-a-service, bi-modal, cost control
  • Demand management in IT – keeping on top of a pipeline of change
  • Making IT work for you – agility, flexibility, clear costs, facilitating business needs

Professional memberships:
