“Always start with the data. Data outlasts systems, languages, and people. Elegant software design cannot compensate for bad or out-of-date data. Putting expensive code on top of bad data is like putting racing tires on a Yugo; in the end it’s still a Yugo and no one wants it.” – Mike Dyer
Mike Dyer is a senior principal solution architect for DXC Technology with deep experience serving a variety of DXC clients and establishing architecture governance and standards in DXC. When designing and implementing solutions, he brings a unique, integrated perspective to business processes, location, data and organizational change.
Mike has architected solutions for continuous operations, high-performance applications, multi-system interoperability and application modernization. He is highly skilled in many areas—data, applications, technology, business processes, location, organization change, systems monitoring management, and security—that are all necessary for transitioning clients to as-a-service environments.
Mike led the creation of an application-based migration architecture that was a template for delivery of next-generation systems. He designed the delivery method and contract vehicles for delivering infrastructure, applications and information management components in an integrated as-a-service model. This delivers both an IT strategy as well as a complete refurbishment of the client’s IT at a much lower cost and in a way that eliminates most of the risk associated with a complex delivery.
Mike played a critical role as chief architect and CTO for the UK National Health Service (NHS), getting the program on track with significant architectural changes, both technical and organizational. Mike led the successful redesign and re-deployment of Lorenzo electronic health records system at NHS, where it is running at nine hospitals with no downtime.
For the implementation in 2009 of the IRS Tax Modernization systems, still in use today, Mike received the IRS CIO's Award for Excellence. He received the Award for Technical Excellence in 2004 for the successful implementation of the New York State Medicaid system, and the Award for Technical Excellence in 2002 for his work on a predictive Architecture Visualization and Modeling decision support system.
Mike is co-creator of the Global Architecture (A10) Capability Framework, which has had a major impact on the architecture profession, training and assignments at DXC, and is a leader of DXC’s Architecture & Engineering Community.
