Hi, thanks for visiting my blog.
I’m am a humble technologist who enjoys cricket and travel. I like to blog about things I’m trying to learn so this blog is both for personal satisfaction and a document store for my failing short term memory.
My career has taken in quite a big of change, about which I’m most positive or have forgotten about (see earlier). I started my career as a developer with BEA Systems working on the Weblogic Application Server product line. I have then spent most of my time in either Finance (Bar Cap, Bupa Insurance) or Telcos including (Full-List): o2 UK, T-Mobile UK, UPC NL, UPC Austria, UPC Global, Vodafone Group, Vodafone UK, Vodacom South Africa, Vodafone India, BT & EE. I’ve worked on launches of 3G and 4G technologies. I am now working on the UK’s first to 5G launch so most of my writing will be under the 5G category.
I’ve worked on a lot of “digital transformation” projects (as opposed to static analogues!). For posterity these include the UK’s first 5G network for BT & EE, the UK’s Emergency Services Network also for EE, the global 20 territory roll-out of Vodafone’s global digital platforms, Europe’s first IP-TV platform for Liberty Global, Bupa’s digital insurance transformation, and Barclay Capital’s digital platform architecture. On these jobs I ‘ve normally been either, or sometimes both, a chief enterprise architect, or programme manager.
I am a also regular conference speaker (a lot of stuff for TMForum) and blogger (apicrazy.com). I am both a Google Cloud Platform and AWS Professional certified architect.
If you want to know more, just want to chat or get some advice, or are even looking to hire an enterprise architect for your project then please contact me through any of the following channels:
