I joined the CloudStream with over 30 years of technology experience, from engineering the early internet with companies such as Cisco Systems all the way to building out recent agile technology services companies. I’ve always been a pure technologist and was constantly motivated by the rapid change of technology development and connectivity in the 90s.
As the 4th industrial revolution emerges, and we begin to see the way classic business models can be disrupted by digital and analytics, I am filled with a new wave of excitement. This new revolution enables me to combine my passion for technology with the business experience gained from founding, building and running and selling technology services companies.
I took on the role as CSO (Chief Services Officer) for CloudStream as I knew I could help the business navigate these exciting but challenging digital waters. By designing, building and operating a new global professional services capability it would allow us to really blend the concept of technology and talent.
For years clients have been shouting out for really committed delivery partners, who can supply high quality technologists across the critical niche skills sets but without carrying the associated cost burden. I am positive our model can to do this whilst creating an average 30% cost saving.
Using our deep sector expertise and flexible engagement models I look to assist our customers as we all navigate the disruptive changes brought about by new patterns of consumption, production and employment.
These changes bring many opportunities as well as threats and it is my teams mission to help our customers maximise the opportunities and mitigate the threats. What an opportunity, what a challenge and what a time to be doing it!
