Background

I joined DMW in 2019 after four and a half years of working at Accenture as a Technology Consultant. I was aligned to the banking practice, where I worked on big data, target operating models and data migration projects.

Prior to Accenture, I completed an MBA at Lancaster University, where we covered a broad range of business disciplines.

Before studying for my MBA, I was involved in software development at Wipro Technologies and worked in Toronto for three years. I wanted to gain a deeper understanding of the business disciplines, which led to my decision to study for an MBA.

Outside of work, I love spending time outdoors. I enjoy running and I have more recently taken up cycling.

Skillset 

Utilising my experience in data management, application development and technology consulting, I focus on solving client problems, contributing towards strategy, and driving implementation.

I am certified in Agile SAFe, ITILv4, PRINCE 2, Big Data and Data Management (DAMA), and take a pragmatic approach to demonstrate value to the client.

Despite the rapidly evolving technology around us, I believe that most data issues can be resolved by focusing on people and processes. My experience allows me to help clients understand complex data challenges, develop feasible solutions involving both business and technology to drive decision making, and move towards greater data maturity.

Career Highlights 

I was a key member involved in the roll-out of a big data platform for one of the UK’s largest banks, which enabled three business segments comprising of hundreds of users to have access to advanced analytics offerings. I also developed a target operating model for the big data platform to define processes, organisation structure, and platform roles, liaising with cross-functional IT and business teams.

Recently, I was involved in developing a service design model for a major data platform capability at a FTSE 100 client, helping them adopt DataOps principles, and leading a successful service transition to a new support team. There was a real satisfaction in witnessing the implementation of the strategy that I had contributed towards.
