Carol Morris

Initially, I worked as a software developer in a small software house and moved into project and programme management eventually managing a portfolio of 60 projects with a technology value of £36M and infrastructure of £11M. I led on the implementation of a project “practice structure” to improve the practice of project and portfolio management in 2 organisations.

I then moved into a transformation role to work with the programmes delivering trans-formative organisation and technology change. I was then given the opportunity to join the public cloud programme working with the team implementing a public cloud strategy at Barclays.

I have completed the AWS Solutions Architect Associate training and am looking to gain certification in the next 6 months and I am now leading the business engagement function where I am accountable for raising awareness of Cloud and how to adopt it across the Bank and identifying business units need in order to increase adoption of Cloud and to ensure Cloud roadmap aligns to business needs. I lead a team of Solution Architects as well as the function that provides information on what is available and how to use it, which we deliver via a website and a wiki. We also deliver tailored training to colleagues and identify the most suitable publicly available training for colleagues to consume.

I run a 2-weekly forum with over 700 invitees to share information about public cloud and am often seen as the “go to” person for cloud information at Barclays!
