Technology Leadership

In a world where technology is everywhere and everything, it’s not good enough to simply muddle through.

Knowledge is power and you need experienced industry experts who not only have a deep ‘hands-on’ understanding of technology, but are also able to translate that knowledge into thought leadership and build the consensus required to facilitate action.

If you’re initiating a new program or any major technology transformation, you will need the right expertise. If a significant negative event occurs do you have the expertise to bring the program back on track? If you outsource your project to a third party, how do you judge the technical expertise of your supplier? Someone has to lead the evaluation, because the price of failure can be disastrous. The industry success rate stands at just 15% for financial programs. This damning statistic has been brought about because delivery hasn’t kept up or fallen through, a dependency got missed, there was a lack of regulatory compliance, or there weren’t the senior consultants to come in and steer the project out of trouble.

Innovative technology is becoming the chief catalyst of breakthrough customer value, and IT should be the primary source for identifying and introducing innovative technologies to the business.

Your IT department has an obligation to manage ever increasing data complexity, to modernise the associated infrastructure, and provide stewardship and governance. Do you have the leadership required for such a vast responsibility? It’s not enough to be proficient with managing time and money, you need someone with a comprehensive understanding of technology. A chief architect who can act as advisor to the program director.

Our technology leaders are vastly-experienced industry experts who not only have a deep ‘hands-on’ understanding of technology, but are also able to translate that knowledge into strategic direction and have the skills to influence and build consensus to action.

They will engage with your Chief Technical Officer or IT Director’s team to help define strategy and technology roadmaps, ensuring they are implemented appropriately in solution designs. Excellent leadership provides vital input in defining your operational structure and turning your enterprise architecture into a pragmatic set of actions to help you move beyond presentations and models and into the realisation of your organisation’s strategic goals.

Our experienced architects will engage as a technology advisor to your programme director and manager, helping provide architecture and design assurance on IT change programmes, overseeing design and development choices that protect the delivery timeline, the integrity of the solution and its ability to fully realise the business benefit.
