Robert Mamone

Head Of Cloud & Engineering at Coles

About

The earlier part of my career was technical in operations and delivery, maintaining and building complex enterprise solutions on high-end infrastructure for mission critical systems mainly in Banking and Finance.

With a solid technical foundation to support why, what, and how solutions are delivered, I successfully led strategic project initiatives in multiple industries across the globe.

I then established myself as a passionate people leader with an obsession for customer centricity & product mindset, building and growing cross-functional teams.

A proven track record leading cloud operation, software delivery, infrastructure and architecture departments in Retail, uplifting engineering practices and driving efficiencies through Agile delivery.

A natural ability to look at the solution as a whole, with an appreciation for detail, to drive the desired strategic outcomes that deliver value and business benefits.

Debating Critical Themes

01 Modernisation

We are still hamstrung by legacy systems and sweated assets, holding us back from agility, innovation and growth. How do we make 2023 the year we finally get off the dead horse? What are your app and infra modernisation plans? Lift and shift or modernise?

02 Optimising hybrid architectures

Almost everyone either has an accidental or deliberate hybrid architecture with apps and workloads in transition. What are the most effective strategies and operating models? How do you take success enterprise wide?

03 Effective FinOps

It’s time to bust the myths around cloud costs simply being a shift from Capex to Opex, making things cheaper, forecastable, and being owned by Technology. Getting FinOps, forecasting, budgets and cross-functional responsibilities correct is critical to save bill shock and missed expectations in modern business.

04 Resilience & Compliance

You need to allow teams to consume services in a standard way, but stay compliant and secure. Resilience is the foundation for digital business – are you set up to succeed?

05 Sustainability

Global sustainability requirements and influences are impacting the decision making in IT. What do you need to do to report ESG correctly for your CIO & CFO?

06 Prioritisation and reducing complexity

If everyone wants cloud, how do you prioritise and accommodate your customers? How to deliver efficient throughput to save on shadow IT, while reducing the sprawl and complexity?
