Product Manager for Public Cloud
At the UK Home Office I set up their Public Cloud Team and led on the creation of their overall cloud strategy.
I was responsible for ensuring that we worked on the cloud securely, reduced our costs regularly and continuously improved the way that we worked.
I was able to secure over £10m of savings per annum through a variety of sources such as contractual negotiations, purchasing of reserved instances and enabling cost optimisation on individual accounts.
I was also the Supplier Relationship Manager for AWS & Azure. I worked regularly with both of the suppliers account teams to get the best value from our partnerships. This included organising training for over 150 staff and enabling the completion of over 40 cloud certifications over the last 2 years.
As a Product Manager for the Public Cloud team I was responsible for the overall product roadmap, led a team of 8 people, a spend of £1.5m per year and was the recognised single point of contact for cloud across the whole organisation.
The Public Cloud Team is responsible for the Strategy, Governance and Best Practices for how to use Public Cloud service, such as AWS & Azure.
It is a multidisciplinary team working in Agile way to develop tools and products to improve the way development teams access and use the cloud.
They have continuously improved our security, cost efficiency and effectiveness of our 150+ AWS accounts & 30+ Azure Subscriptions!
