Andy Powell

Cloud CTO


I contribute to the technology roadmap for our cloud solutions business as well as providing strategy and cloud leadership across the organisation.

I am an AWS Certified Solutions Architect (Associate level) and I retain as much practical hands-on experience as I am able, working directly with our members, customers and partners wherever possible.

I have over 30 years IT experience in a wide range of roles including networking, system administration, software development, website/digital delivery, IT strategy, solutions architecture and national & international policy advice. I am a passionate believer in the benefits that public cloud adoption can bring the public and third sectors and to the education sector in particular.

I am a strong technical writer and experienced communicator and have spoken at conferences and events all over the world.
