I joined dsp back in 2000 to help our clients realise the competitive advantage of database technology and make business sense of the complexity of IT.
This opportunity is even greater today. The pace of change in IT is phenomenal and managing a company during these times is incredibly exciting.
It is a privilege to create a business where our staff are continually challenged to master the innovation in IT and to craft services that can be used simply by our customers.
I am actively involved in the UK Oracle User Group and help to organise regular meet ups as well as presenting regularly at the Annual conference. I also love to attend the Microsoft and Open source cloud meet up events that happen regularly.
