I’m an solutions architect / developer interested in SOA (Service Oriented Architecture), portals and web forms technology. By leveraging these technologies I am able to build solutions that continue to align with business requirements and the needs of the end-users.

In the current UK financial climate, cost savings are high on the agenda of my current employer (Devon County Council). I’ve led on implementing a new technical architecture that’s largely based on open source technologies to meet these challenges, whilst at the same time providing tools to explore new collaborative working opportunities both internally and with external partners. I’m now leading on applying the technical architecture to power a suite of public online services.

This blog will serve as a scratch pad where I will share my thinking on all areas of technical architectural design, and to promote debate.
