“We have an ambitious vision to revolutionize how new products and business models are brought to market swiftly, safely and scalably—in minutes not months”

Barry O’Reilly is a business advisor, entrepreneur, and author who has pioneered the intersection of business model innovation, product development, organizational design, and culture transformation.

He works with business leaders and teams from global organizations that seek to invent the future, not fear it. Every day, Barry helps many of the world’s leading companies, from disruptive startups to Fortune 500 behemoths, break the vicious cycles that spiral businesses toward death. His expertise enables a culture of experimentation and learning to unlock the insights required for better decision making, higher performance and results.

“The ability for individuals and teams to test new ideas rapidly, and build then launch new products—regardless of their engineering knowledge and knowhow — is the future of entrepreneurism and business model innovation. The mission for Gamatech and our ThoughtForma platform is to put that power in everyone's hands”, said Barry. “This no-code capability reduces time, cost and barriers to experimenting with customers to create scalable, secure, software in seconds not months. It’s truly a game changing technology.”

Barry advises numerous industry-leading startups, including AgileCraft, recently acquired by Atlassian.

Barry is the author of two international bestsellers, Unlearn: Let Go of Past Success to Achieve Extraordinary Results, and Lean Enterprise: How High Performance Organizations Innovate at Scale — included in the Eric Ries series, and a Harvard Business Review must-read for CEOs and business leaders. He is an internationally sought-after speaker, frequent writer and contributor to The Economist, Strategy+Business, and MIT Sloan Management Review.

Barry is faculty at Singularity University, advising and contributing to Singularity’s executive and accelerator programs based in San Francisco, and throughout the globe.

Barry is the founder of ExecCamp, the entrepreneurial experience for executives, and management consultancy Antennae.

His mission is to help purposeful, technology-led businesses innovate at scale.

About Gamatech Gamatech was founded by Gareth and Jason Edge, two brothers who are passionate in their belief that IT should be available to everyone - giving life to ideas that would otherwise stay locked in people’s heads. Since the company was launched in 2018, the pair have been hard at work building tools for people to materialize their ideas as digital creations - some of which could have major positive impacts for humankind.

Gamatech CTO, Jason Edge said, “As a career-long maverick techie experimenter (who went on to advise national governments, corporates and start-ups about technical architectures and strategic data governance), I couldn’t shake the notion that someone should package up all the best practices of the application development process and good data stewardship into something that anyone could use - effectively getting technology out of its own way. I’ve always had an interest in automation and latterly in AI and machine learning, and when Gareth pitched to me his ‘universally available tech’ vision of Gamatech I realised it was time to make this happen and so ThoughtForma was born.”

Gamatech’s ThoughtForma platform is an intuitive, fun, yet powerful online service which delivers multi-channel technology into the hands of everyone – no code or technical skill required. It allows creatives and innovators to launch fully-functional digital applications, rapidly bringing their ideas to life in minutes not months.

Visit Gamatech at the upcoming Dublin Tech Summit, April 22 – 23 2020.
