After spearheading the DevOps transformation of strategic products at BAE Systems, I am now the Principal DevOps Consultant for DevOpsGroup.

At BAE Systems I transformed the Product Teams of SuccessFactors, ServiceNow, SAP, SharePoint, Cognos and Salesforce which resulted in greater adaptability of the business to external, internal and technology volatility realised through 35% improvement in service performance, 300% increase in deployment frequency with lower lead times, higher customer satisfaction and greater employee satisfaction.
