Chris Woods
Turning Research into Product.

I focus on the technology path from research and strategic planning, through project management and software development. In short, I work with you to create a vision of the future that gives your company a competitive edge, together we determine what we need to do get there, and then I make it happen.

Software Architecture across Cloud, IoT and Mobile.

With 20 years’ experience in software development, split between production software engineering and architecture, programme management and industrial research, I have a track record of successful projects. This experience has been gained working at Nokia (Symbian), Microsoft, Intel and Siemens among others. I led the team which created the global DNS system which underpins Microsoft Azure, worked on embedded systems for mobile phones and IoT devices, and have acted as technical leader of international research projects in areas covering Cloud Infrastructure, Edge and Fog Computing, IoT, 5G and Big Data technologies.
