What I do
As a manager, I handle the delivery and operation of our cloud services—from designing, building and implementing the solution. My focus is always on ensuring our clients’ smooth transition to the cloud.
The role of a cloud transformation and migration manager requires a strong understanding of the clients technical landscape. We need the right skills and experience to get the job done as we work with large and complex technology environments of top organizations. To ensure that we reach our goals without any roadblocks, it’s critical that I work closely with all stakeholders to carefully assess the various requirements for a project and know which solutions work.Learn more about Cloud Careers.
A day in my life
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.

Always challenge yourself to try something new so you can build on your skills and strengths. In this line of work, you need to expose yourself to different projects to get the technical breadth of knowledge required to spark innovation and create a solution that will provide value to our clients.
