Daniel Vaughan Photo I’m Daniel Vaughan. I help organisations achieve the real benefits of the cloud. If you would like to know more please see my blog.

I currently work at Mastercard in London, where I am responsible for cloud strategy and architecture for real-time payment products .

Previously I was at HCL Cloud Native Labs, beginning as a Cloud Native Solutions Expert helping organisations move to the cloud. I progressed to lead the IBM Red Hat Ecosystem and then to be the cross-ecosystem Head of Solutions Architecture. This experience gave me a broad exposure to the potential and challenges of cloud offerings with many customers.

The main areas where I have been able to provide value are increasing developer productivity and reducing operations overhead. I also have a strong interest in software sustainability in the cloud and moving towards net-zero, and I am a member of the Green Software Foundation.

Before HCL, I spent eight years in Bioinformatics at the European Bioinformatics Institute in Cambridge where I started as a Software Engineer, moved into leading engineering teams and developed my cloud skills. , where I started as a developer, moved into leading engineering teams and developed my cloud skills. At EMBL-EBI, my main interest was software quality and developer productivity.

I am particularly passionate about community and skills development. I founded the Genome Campus Software Community and EMBL-EBI Technical Seminars Programme to bring people together to share their ideas, expertise and perspectives.

In my personal life, I live in Saffron Walden with my wife Michelle and son Alex.
