At Accenture, I take tremendous pride in working with the most brilliant tech professionals. As I spend a lot of time understanding a client’s business and their unique challenges, it helps that my teammates come from diverse backgrounds. We each have a different take on architectural approaches. Our diversity allows us to leverage on each other strengths so that we can deliver relevant solutions for our clients. It helps keep everyone on the ball. I use these insights to design a tailored solution that will address the client challenges.
One project I’m particularly proud of is my work on a huge desktop transformation for one of our mining clients. The client invited me to visit several of their mine sites and speak with their employees. During this engagement, I was able to get a deeper understanding of their core business as well as the different ways of working there. This allowed me to identify different issues that would have gone unnoticed if I was sitting in an office. Ultimately, the visit enabled me to develop a solution that successfully fixed their working issues.
Another thing I like about working here is the wide range of opportunities to continuously learn and grow. Accenture has a wealth of training assets to keep us abreast of emerging technologies. The company also has dedicated communities of practice to encourage knowledge sharing among employees. This provides me access to a wider audience who can help me test and challenge my ideas in a safe environment. Furthermore, Accenture invites solution architects from technology providers to run training sessions and provide us access to technologies across various tech companies.
In my spare time, I play football with my friends. Apart from that, I enjoy building home automation systems and playtesting board games.
