From months to minutes: How 10x thinking turned a tech ambition into reality for Nationwide
Taking an organisation founded in the mid-1800s on a journey to the reality of public multi-cloud, microservices and containerised technology is no small feat. But at Nationwide Building Society these capabilities are a reality today and the technology foundations for the future.
Gary Delooze, CIO of the world’s largest building society is the driving force behind Nationwide’s Technology Strategy, bringing his 20+ years of technology consulting experience and strategic leadership in the UK banking sector to bear.
Exploiting the vast possibilities cloud adoption creates for the benefit of 15 million members is as much about the journey the Society’s colleagues (current and future) are on as the tech revolution itself. In this session Gary shares his experience to date and vision for “The Big Investment”, including:
• The ambition and role of the Technology Strategy in shaping both the now and the future
• From months to minutes and how thinking big enabled another technology first for Nationwide
• Establishing a Cloud Centre of Excellence: What we have learned and how we did it
• How vital people are to success and the empowerment, investment and opportunities available for tech talent at Nationwide
