Simon Elisha is Head of Solution Architecture at Amazon Web Services, and is sought after by CLevel Executives who want rare insights into how Cloud Computing, Big Data and Agile software development are changing the way organisations improve customer experience, reduce costs and adapt quickly.
Simon was working in cloud well before it was “cool”. As the first technical staff member for Amazon Web Services in Australia, he led the charge to Public Cloud before most people even knew what AWS was. Bringing 26 years of industry experience in software and infrastructure to the “brave new world”– he was able to guide start-ups, digital businesses, Government and Enterprises alike on their journey to the cloud.
Key projects he has worked on include the migration of key digital assets for the National Australia Bank to AWS (including the deployment of “Chaos Monkey” in production), complete migration of one of the leading Australian gaming companies’ digital apps to the Public cloud with full Continuous Deployment and maximum scalability to cope with massive loads such as the Melbourne Cup, and the migration of significant “traditional” workloads from a Datacentre to the cloud for a major Government Service Provider.
