If you have a great app idea, it takes a lot of thinking, planning and testing. Someone will say it won’t work, but don’t listen to them. Do the math. Get into the technical detail. Find out what the specific industry requirements are. For example, in our case, when it comes to patient data, security and confidentiality are extremely important. I believe this app is the first of many.
I want to continue to concentrate on the medical industry because I have access to great insight through this group of doctors. Also, I want to leave a legacy and create efficiencies in healthcare.
The future is exciting. Big data is already a bit of a cliché but we have professors thinking about how we can use it to improve lives and treatment. And it’s thanks to the people like Shehnaz Ismail and Marius Dreyer, the senior management team at Accenture, for believing in us and helping us realise these ambitions. I also need to thank my mentor, Abie Lessing, who since November has helped me develop the GTM strategy, as well as provide technical input for the development process. Qualifying for the ESDP at Accenture would not have been possible if it were not for Zandile Njamela for making things happen. An enormous THANK YOU must go to her.
I can confidently say this programme has been about more than checking boxes for Accenture, and that even beyond the scope of this programme I can come back and bounce ideas off them at any time. They are personally invested in my success. This programme has been about more than checking boxes for Accenture. They are personally invested in my success.
