Speaker:

Colin Butcher FBCS CITP CEng, of XDelta Limited

Details:

The design and implementation of highly available disaster-tolerant and mission critical systems requires a more disciplined approach to systems engineering than is common in the IT industry. To successfully design and deliver mission critical systems it is important to have a sound understanding of technology and how to apply it in order to make reasonable decisions. Effective communication with all involved in the project is essential in order to guide the project through to successful completion. This session will discuss the complexities and difficulties of leading mission critical systems projects.

About the speaker:

Colin is a consulting engineer who specialises in leading the design and implementation of mission-critical and disaster-tolerant systems. He has been responsible for the design and implementation of systems engineering projects in a wide range of industries such as aerospace, power generation, finance, healthcare and transport. Colin has been involved with the world-wide OpenVMS community for over 30 years and is a well-known speaker with specific interests in availability, performance, security, networking and storage. His first career was in mechanical engineering, which provided an ideal background to large scale systems engineering, including software design and development.
