Episode highlights


โ€œSo the start of this journey actually began with failure. This was a burning platform. There were timelines, there were deadlines. And if we didn’t get it resolved, you know, the ramifications were significantโ€ 7:47ย  Sam Billett


โ€œI’m fortunate to work at Vodafone and Vodafone Group, with brilliant people, with executives who really listen and go to bat to try and get you the resources that you need.โ€ย  10:41ย  Sam Billett


โ€œI think the trick there was not just doing a big unveil. It’s about approaching things gradually. It’s its evolution, not revolution, in that sense. Starting small and building big.โ€ 11:33ย  Sam Billett


โ€œI think there was a push suddenly for people who are beginning their transformational journeys that are saying, well, we have to move headless, we have to go composable not not necessarily. There was still a role for monolithic stacks. I think you’re right, the future is heading that way to that decoupled architecture. But I think a lot of people feel under pressure to get to that headless piece quickly.โ€ 14:18 Sam Billett


โ€œSo the benefit of headless from our perspective was twofold. The first was it gave us flexibility and speed and certainty.โ€ 15:33 Sam Billett


โ€œIt was a bit like that whole Avengers Assemble piece, isn’t it? Yes, your specialist in this area is a specialist in that area. And that’s where, I guess the you know, the real innovation starts to happen, because you’re all coming with different views, different ideas, but to build something together,โ€ 18:48 Katie Streetย
