The Weather Company has gone through a transformation over the past 3 years taking us from a Cable TV focused company to a Big Data Technology leader. I will talk through the culture transformation that was required in order for us to achieve this rapid transformation and why having a Technology team that is playing off a prerecorded and tightly governed soundtrack isn’t the answer and why being Live is how to best bring the “Art of the Possible” of technology thinking to life.
Bryson is a firm believer in IT as a Service – the concept where IT “gets out of the way” and openly arms every product developer with the tools they need to crank out an endless supply of innovations.
As a member of the Executive Committee and self-proclaimed weather geek, Bryson plays a key role in the overall business strategy for The Weather Company and as head of the technology group, Bryson oversees the strategic vision, technical direction, development, execution and operations of all technology initiatives, systems and platforms across all of the company’s four divisions – TV, Digital, Professional and International.
