"Saying you have an ops team who is solely responsible for reliability of software is about as silly as saying that HR defines and owns your company culture. I have a passionate interest in DevOps, cloud services, productivity improvement, SDLC automation and how I can bring the right approaches and technologies together to make a considerable difference to our clients."
