Dr Neil Richardson is a Senior Lecturer at Leeds Business School, he will be talking to us about Service Marketing. Wether you run a set of tools/platforms or you use ones provided by an internal team or a 3rd Party - it's important that there is a good vendor and customer relationship for the service to be successful. Neil will be sharing his experiences of what makes a service apealing to a customer and how you can build and maintain the relationship.
Our second talk of the evening is presented by Ed Hiley who is a Principal Systems Engineer with NHS Digital, and Dan Rathbone who is Technical Director at Infinity Works. They will be sharing a case study about a highly resilient multi-data centre processing system utilising cloud techniques with bare metal servers. They'll cover how they built automated performance tests, an immutable infrastructure and a NoSQL data store with support for versioning data.
We are again grateful to have Infinity Works sponsor the refreshments and lodgings for the evening, ensuring there are plenty of our favourite beverages and soft drinks in supply.
