Business & Integration Architect


"The best part about my job is how I have the opportunity to change and renew my skillset by continuously working with new, intelligent people."

How we put change in motion

As a Business & Integration Architect, I collaborate with clients on their technical resources. It can be by developing new solutions or features that meet the needs of a business. It can also be by identifying problems or opportunities in already operating systems. Before my current position, I worked in the health industry as an application engineer, where I developed my architect skills and got the opportunity to try out my competencies in the utility industry.

So far, all my projects have been exciting! At the moment I am part of an Enterprise Architecture team where we, in collaboration with the client, work on the enterprise target architecture. This provides a business-driven plan that describes the desired end-state for the enterprise business application architecture. As an architect, I find it super exciting to deep dive into businesses’ current application architectures and identify problems and opportunities within tech- and industry trends, as well as find solutions that would meet the desired application architecture.

A day in my life

The most important thing to know is that a day in the life of a consultant is never the same. So embrace the change!

My day typically starts by meeting a colleague at 6.30 at a swimming pool, where we swim a few lanes before heading to the Accenture office. When we arrive, we greet the wonderful receptionists who always welcome us with a heartwarming smile. Then we go to the canteen for freshly baked croissants and coffee.

The first work-related thing I do in the morning is to check my mail and calendar for meetings and to take notes on specific tasks that might need to be done first to meet a deadline. The first meeting of the day is typically a standup meeting where the team coordinates tasks. For the rest of the day, I usually work on tasks on my own or participate in group meetings where we find solutions related to specific projects. In the afternoon, there are often internal community meetings where I gather with co-workers with the same professional background to be introduced to new trends within leading technologies or technologies aimed at specific industries. Before I end my workday, I go through the tasks I managed to complete and write down new tasks that may have occurred during the day.

In my spare time, I like to run, swim, bike, and play Australian football. It is important for me to stay active, simply because it makes me happy. Through sport, I change the setting from challenging my brain to challenging my body. Doing sports allows me to test my limits and find my weaknesses, but it also teaches me lessons in teamwork and how to stay focused on a task until the goal is achieved.

The best part about my job is how I have the opportunity to change and renew my skillset by continuously working with new, intelligent people. I love that I get the possibility to gain global and national experience across sectors and industries and the fact that I get the latest updates on tech trends. But what I love the most, is how everyone you meet has the motivation and goal to create something great.

My advice
