Kola Akinlade

Oracle Business & Integration Architecture Senior Manager

Atlanta, Georgia


"In helping clients streamline their business processes, the work I do exposes me to a wealth of knowledge across industries."

What I do

As an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) consultant, I help organizations maximize efficiency and save costs by leveraging the automated Oracle ERP technology. In this process, my job is to communicate frequently with my client’s business users to better understand their business processes, then cascade that into the ERP application. This process, called the application implementation, helps drive their business process and automate processes that were previously done manually.

A day in my life

A typical day for me is working hard and playing hard, with a great work-life balance. And with the wealth of talented resources at Accenture, I always find myself with a great team on any given project.

My most interesting project was one where I was the lead system integrator. This gave me the opportunity to leverage my wealth of skills and strategize the leading practices to move the client’s business to the next level. This was a success not just for the client, but also for me.

I love to socialize and network in my spare time. This helps broaden my network at Accenture and with client relationships as well. Outside of work, I enjoy listening to music and playing racquetball.

“I work hard and play hard. At Accenture, there is a great work-life balance.”

My advice

The work we do exposes us to a wealth of knowledge across industries. To succeed, look for someone who will strongly encourage and mentor you.
