Martin Bellamy - CIO of Financial Conduct Authority - Planning for success. Part 1
Before joining FCA, Martin Bellamy has accrued massive experience in both the public and commercial sector. He has managed IT operations at Cambridge University (as CIO), Reuters, Department of Work and Pensions, Ministry of Justice - to mension a few. He also holds a phD in cloud computing.
Financial Conduct Authority is one of the most important financial authorities in the world, overseeing the financial sector in the UK, home to London Stock Exchange.
Cloud computing is commonly viewed by IT directors with suspicion because of local regulation concerns. So it is a great privilege to talk to Martin Bellamy, who not only is leading one of the most ambitious cloud migrations in an environment most sensitive to compliance and security concerns, but has also led an initiative to set standards for large-scale cloud migrations in general. In this episode of Leadership Deep Dive he also talks to Hendrik Deckers about how this ambitious plan was the only logical conclusion for FCA's needs, how it relates to Brexit, how it is organised from an operational perspective, how decisions were made and how it was implemented.
