I’m a technical leader and consultant that helps businesses create and maintain their IT services more effectively. With over a decade of experience in real DevOps and Continuous Delivery, I’ve helped highly-regulated organizations achieve some great operational improvements:
I’ve built and led the teams that deliver and support a number of automation platforms that leverage infra-as-code:
- Centiq’s automation platform for SAP deployments and operations across heterogeneous customer landscapes, enabling the business to scale its services (2017-2021)
- Thames Water’s automation platform for building and managing clustered SAP HANA landscapes in Azure with regional disaster recovery (2018-2019)
- Capital One’s self-service CI/CD software delivery platform used throughout UK tech teams (Mobile, Web, API, Infrastructure, and Data), and even a few in the US too (2014-2016)
Throughout 2020, I also led the team that collaborated with Microsoft Azure Engineering in the US on their open source initiative; delivering HA HANA Clustering, along with the SAP Application Tier, and SAP Software Install Framework.
I spent a number of years developing software (mainly Java APIs) for centralized admin of trading platforms at Thomson Reuters (now part of LSEG). Alongside leading on a few projects, I got to spent a good deal of time working closely with remote Ops teams in London and Bangkok (2007-2014).
Prior to that, I was an academic researcher/lecturer in Crypto/Security and Computer-aided Learning at the University of Nottingham alonside completing my PhD in Crypto/Security with funding from British Telecom Research Labs (2001-2007).
