Robin Paine, who runs our Operational Excellence business and was the ex CTO of LME and LSE, gives us his perspective on the public vs private Cloud debate. Mike King, who leads our Commercial and Procurement practice, discusses the future of sourcing in an insightful piece. Every issue we get to know one of the TORI team a little more informally in our ‘7 Things’ interview. This quarter we find out a bit more about our Head of Managed Services, Chris Renardson. Finally, we will hear from Sue, who for those that don’t know is my wife, and who has been co-ordinating our charity fund- raising over the past three years - raising over £100k for Samaritans and CLIC Sargent. We change our charity every 18 months and Sue will introduce our new charity and give some background into why we have decided to focus on raising funds and awareness for prostate cancer. Whether you’re reading this on the tube or in the office, I hope you enjoy a little perspective…

particularly pleased to introduce this tenth issue of the magazine as Guest Editor. We are seeing a huge amount of activity driving the efficiency of infrastructure across Financial Services at the moment, from service process maturity improvement, to driving the digital agenda with Cloud and application migration, to automation of the work flow. Businesses must manage all of these challenges whilst still maintaining their legacy infrastructure and associated applications. All of the above activity has a major impact on the vendor strategy and the role the sourcing function plays within it, as well as on rationalisation and driving cost effective solutions. In this issue Philip Freeborn, who runs the TORI banking business, having joined us from Barclays where he was CIO/COO for a number of businesses, shares his thoughts on these challenges facing IT infrastructure. It is with great pleasure we have our C-Suite Chit-Chat guest interview with Tony Kerrison, the Global Head of Infrastructure at Barclays, which gives us some insight into the man behind the success story.

Best Wishes Martin Harvey Guest Editor
