So What Is A Computation Theorist Doing As An Outsourcing Enterprise Architect?

Chris Tofts

As labour arbitrage has moved a significant number of IT jobs offshore the remaining technical jobs within the UK tend to be face to face sales focussed. As an example of the type of technical job that remains firmly grounded near to customers, I will outline how a reasonably large (> $50 million) deal progressed and the role the mathematics of computing systems
played in the development of an effective solution. The example deal is a recent agreement between Deluxe Digital Cinemas EMEA and HP Enterprise Services to deliver movie files to cinemas and is likely to impact a multiplex near you in the next 18 months.
