Peter decided to focus on an IT career, after initially working in machine automation and control. Moving parts under software control sparked his fascination in how systems actually work. He attended Glamorgan University gaining a BSc in Computing, specialising in machine control and compiler languages. Over the years working in the industry his interests moved toward large scale business systems, and the analysis of the processes that are needed to support them.
He believes passionately that technology should be something that delivers real business value, and not be an end unto itself.
