I am a CTO and retail technology specialist with 10 years of industry experience. My passion for technology started young, playing with the earliest home computers and talking about electronic equipment. I began my career specialising in embedded systems, and have previously led mobile development teams for major retailers. I started a mobile tech business in 2010 and following an acquisition by retail technology experts Red Ant, I have headed up several award winning initiatives, such as the Retail of Tomorrow project and the IBM Watson Mobile Developer Challenge. In this blog I will share my thoughts on the evolving role of the CTO, enterprise IT strategies, and topical technology stories affecting the industry.
