Main purpose of the job
The principle responsibility of the Cloud Application Architect (CAA) is to assist with the requirements gathering, design, architecture, configure and implementation of several integrated cloud application solutions (utilising the Office 365, Azure and Salesforce platforms) for the NAO.
The NAO Digital Plan 2020 - 2022 identifies several cloud-based applications which, through revised methodologies, will modernise our audit practices. The postholder will work with internal and external teams to design and build proof of concepts (POCs) across the NAO's cloud platforms. The integrated solutions will utilise the NAO's existing and future-planned cloud platforms, they will adhere to the NAO's enterprise architecture principles and will ultimately determine the feasibility of an in-house built solution for modernising audit in the NAO.
The Cloud Application Architect within Digital Services (DS) will oversee the design process for several cloud application solutions planned within the NAO's Digital Plan. This will involve the creation of new integrated applications developed through POCs, prototypes and various agile development iterations. This will involve evaluating candidate technologies, determining the best technology options for revised audit methodologies and plotting cloud pathways for innovation and automation.
In this role a cross-functional background with good cloud and applications knowledge is vital. As well as working with key internal technical staff the postholder will liaise with external suppliers across a range of technology projects. Key candidate projects for cloud applications include; new audit management and control systems for our audit practices, external portals and extranets for client and stakeholder communications, cloud-based information assurance systems.
