Can you describe an exiting assignment you have been working on?
I worked together with a global manufacturing client to implement methodology and routines in working with Application Portfolio Management. My role was to act as lead Enterprise Architect securing that the right information was provided to the Business and IT Management in issues concerning application investments and consolidation. One nice feature in this work was that we also built an Alexa-app to the backbone documenting system, which made it possible to actually ask questions about applications using your voice.
Why did you join Opticos?
I was working on a big global consultant company before and wanted to change to something smaller with a more personal touch. Still, I wanted to continue working with challenging assignments with interesting clients. Opticos could deliver this combination. And what finally made me chose Opticos was meeting the very senior but still humble people who recruited me.
What did you do before joining Opticos?
After my graduation from University back in the mid-nineties I have been working in various roles in IT. I have been developer, project manager, team leader, product manager, IT-strategist and lately mostly Enterprise Architect. I like working with Enterprise Architecture since its an area where you almost need all the IT-skills there is in the box, still needing to add some additional EA-skills that quite few people possess.
What is the best thing about your job at Opticos?
I like the way my work forces me to be creative, using all my (and others) knowledge and understanding of people, organization, business and technology. Helping our clients to build the best possible solutions using their requirements and constraints gives you a high degree of work satisfaction. And I must add that working at Opticos means working in a team with highly skilled people that can help you find good ways forward when you need it.
