Stewart Norriss is the Head of Architecture & Security at the Datashed, where he works on real-time and on-demand data projects for some of the largest companies in the UK, particularly designing and implementing cloud-hosted solutions allowing businesses to leverage their data when and where they need it.
Stewart has over 20 years experience in IT and recently has been behind the team responsible for GAMSTOP which is the largest self exclusion scheme in the world. This is a 24x7x365 project which works at massive scale. His goal is to make IT as useful and as easy as possible for everyone. Stewart is interested in the communication and convergence side of IT, which gives companies the chance to engage a wider user base and build applications and hardware that people actually want and can contribute to. Only by doing so will IT be fully embraced and become part of normal business and social interaction.
