Tom Clark

Head of Common Platform Technology at ITV

ITV’s Common Platform


A first-hand account of the DevOps revolution at ITV, from one of the people that led it. This presentation describes how ITV DevOps went from a grass-roots movement to the foundation of a multi-million pound modernisation programme in three years, with a deep-dive into our guiding principles and how we apply them to people, process and technology.

Tom has spent 15 years working with technology across a number of sectors, from manufacturing with Jaguar Cars to media with the BBC, Global Radio and most recently ITV. During this time he has held senior/lead positions in several disciplines, including platform engineering, development and architecture. Now as Head of Common Platform at ITV, Tom is responsible for growing the hosting platform that underpins all of our key applications. He will always be an engineer, but now the day job is managing and developing the “smart and kind” people that build, maintain and evolve the platform.
