"We made a difference by moving many of the larger enterprise applications onto Microsoft Azure."
How I put change in motion
I am a Managing Director and Technology Delivery Lead, helping clients implement systems related to the order-to-cash value chain—processes for receiving and processing customer orders.
We recently worked with DuPont as it became a separate entity from global chemical giant DowDuPont and needed to establish independent manufacturing technology capabilities. We helped them implement a cloud-based solution that could be leveraged by everyone in the organization.
I was responsible for migrating 500 applications from Dow to DuPont. I led my team members, giving them the autonomy to make decisions, and we collaborated with other Accenture teams to ensure integration across solutions, technology and processes.
We delivered on time and within budget. We made a difference by moving many of the larger enterprise applications onto Microsoft Azure to promote long-term scalability and elasticity.
My team included Managing DirectorAdam Cooper, who enabled our team to bring their technical expertise and creativity to the tasks at hand; Software Developer ManagerRobert Jones, who helped manage laboratory data; Management ConsultantMichael Niemann, who focused on strategy and documentation; and Senior ManagerDixit Patel, who led the migration of manufacturing quality systems.

Here’s a look at what a typical day might look like on the DuPont project:
Update DuPont leadership on project status.
Meet with my teams and help them make decisions.
Identify potential staffing gaps.
Attend plenty of meetings.
“We collaborated with other Accenture teams to ensure integration across solutions, technology and processes.”
Don’t be afraid to take risks. If you are convinced of the technology and the solution and you’re convinced that you can pull it off, make the appropriate recommendations to the client and deliver the results.
