Shun Kosaka

Salesforce Application Development Specialist

"To transform a client’s business end-to-end, you need to know whole the business process of enterprise activity and various layers of technology—and Accenture’s team approach makes that possible."

What I do

I’m a solution architect for a utility company. Our team is working to replace the client's contact center system with Salesforce. The client is a large enterprise company, so our mission is not just a simple system replacement. My main work is designing the business process and system architecture, considering integration between other internal systems and communication with a lot of stakeholders.

A day in my life

On a daily basis, we have access to a center of excellence team to research new technologies and gather reusable project assets. We also have global standardized technology solutions; for example, comprehensive DevOps solutions so our clients can deliver faster and have greater business agility.

We have a variety of specialists across the globe. I really like that I can quickly connect, discuss and build a team with them. To transform a client’s business end-to-end, you need to know the whole business process of enterprise activity and various layers of technology. Can you do it by yourself? No, but with a team you can. For example, I'm a cloud technology specialist and I often work with the specific business domain consultants, digital marketing specialists, and so on.

I joined Accenture as a Java engineer after I earned a master’s degree in electrical engineering. After I met the Cloud-First Applications team, I immediately got interested in cloud services because they're growing rapidly. I thought these new technologies would be able to drastically change clients’ businesses—and build my career. Now I'm on the journey to becoming a technical architect, who are responsible for the client's overall structure of a program or system with broad knowledge and experience.

I'm grateful for the current team, and I learned that diving into somewhere new gave me the chance to become a pioneer. At Accenture you can pursue a lot of opportunities on your project, in your department and in the company. If you think you can't find it, you haven't pursued it yet actually.

And when I’m not working, I enjoy taking a break from digital devices to get refreshed! Mountain climbing with my friends on the weekend is my favorite pastime.
