Nicole Shaw

Oracle Business & Integration Architecture Analyst

Johannesburg, South Africa


"In creating best-in-class solutions for clients, getting out of your comfort zone is the key to loving your job—and growing your career."

What I do

As a Business and Integration Architecture Analyst in the Accenture Oracle technology practice, I implement and configure end-to-end solutions for clients. In my role, I set up requirements from the client in the cloud and test the system to provide a fully configured and functional system, while preparing the client for when they have fully moved to the cloud.

A day in my life

A day at Accenture for me is like entering a world full of opportunities. I’ve never been in a company that embraces people from different countries, cultures, races, different age groups and different expertise to the extent that Accenture does. It is the most colorful company I’ve ever worked for, and that brings so much positivity to the culture of the business, which in turn has made me more excited, motivated and productive when coming into work.

Implementing end-to-end solutions for one of the biggest pharmaceutical retailers in South Africa is my exciting project. I needed to implement an Oracle module that I had never worked with before. At first, I was nervous because of my lack of experience, but working with the right people and support allowed me to grasp the new journey. This project has taken me out of my comfort zone, which in turn has given me a space to grow and learn.

“Accenture is the most colorful company I’ve ever worked for; it brings so much positivity to the culture.”

My advice

Don’t be afraid, and don’t put yourself in a box. Don’t be scared to start at the bottom; however, make sure your goal is to reach the top. Most importantly, learn as much as you can from different people and share your knowledge. Working at Accenture is the perfect place to start when you want to learn, innovate, create, implement and strive in technology as a young professional.
