I am one of the founders of CloudZync, a cloud based mobile commerce platform that also delivers true mobile payments and I am the acting CloudZync CTO.
My career in IT started when I graduted from my Computer Science degree back in 98. In my early days I worked as a software developer, specialising in ECM (though wasnt called that back then) applications and solutions. I quickly moved on to more senior roles, ranging from developer to technical architect to business consultant for workFlow, BPM and ECM solutions. I have been lucky enough to work on many large and small scale projects with many blue chip organisations from varied business sectors, such as banking, investments, insurance, telecommunications and government, primarily dealing with ECM / BPM type solutions.
In 2004 I started my own IT consultancy, One Degree Consulting, which provided consultanty services to a number of SMEs and also software development and web development services. This business grew to include graphic design work, this was carried out under the name of OD Media along with more website development work. One Degree also designed and built the WorkFile ECM platform. At the end of 2010, One Degree Consulting was disbanded and the workFile product taken over by WorkFile Ltd.
In addition to my role as CTO at CloudZync, I am on the advisory board for both WorkFile Ltd and onlineExistence as a technical and IT advisor.
If you are wondering why I have kept this blog as Andrew OneDegree, it’s because OneDegree was not just a company, it was a belief, that between any user / customer, and their goal via technology, it should be reached through just a single degree of seperation (seperated by one degree).
On a more personla level, I am an avid cricket fan and not only enjoy watching Essex and England play, but I also enjoy playing and representing Billericay Cricket Club. I also still very much enjoy Basketball, but unfortunately I no longer play the game. I also enjoy F1, tennis, golf and numerous other sports, as well as keeping fit and enjoying life with my wife and family.
