Digital Platform Architecture Senior Principal
"I help build solutions for marketers to keep website content relevant in an ever-changing world."
In my role as a Digital Platform Architecture Senior Principal, I help architect enterprise websites that deliver digital user experiences. If you frequently see fresh content on your favorite websites, it’s because people like me have helped build solutions for marketers to keep the content relevant in an ever-changing world. We also help provide a personalized experience by helping companies identify what matters to you most, based upon the information you have shared and provided through repeated visits to the site.
Recently, I was the lead architect for the Accenture.com migration from Sitecore to the Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) platform. The project was extra special to me because it was doing what I do best for my own company. As the lead AEM developer trainer for many years, this was bridging my two passions together: training and project delivery.
We bring a variety of consulting elements to one project to deliver 360 value for our clients. In at least 80% of my projects, I get to work alongside many different pillars within Accenture, including strategists, industry experts, UX designers and change enablers.
It’s so important to keep your skills fresh. Accenture offers continuous learning opportunities to keep our skills and certifications up to date. We also have access to vendor-provided courses if the topic is not already incorporated into our learning program.
Here’s what my day might look like:
"I start my day with one of the most important connections of my day (with my team).”
There is always room to keep growing and learning. While I’m focused on the area of AEM implementations, I’ve recently started to learn about other platforms in the commerce experience. It’s helped me better provide value to our clients by being versed in both the digital experience and e-commerce sides of the house.
