How did a large Utility's aggressive cloud migration strategy enable home working for most office based staff during the COVID-19 lockdown. What worked, what caused the most problems and do cloud services really deliver what they claim when your backs are against the wall? Personal experience from the front line during this unprecedented test of disaster plans, cloud scaling and 90% home working.

Andy Edwards has previously presented to the Corporate IT Forum (CITF) and has kindly agreed to present to the Notts and Derbys branch of the BCS, this evening.

Andy is an information technology expert skilled in the Cloud, Big Data, IT Strategy and Digitisation, with a demonstrated history of working in the oil and energy industry.

His current work focus is around public Cloud, microservice architecture and Industrial IoT. At heart, Andy is a lover of complex problems and IT just happens to have some of the best.
