I understand that you want results, not technical jargon.
I will focus on business issues and listen to you, your business users, your technology team, and your clients.
I will try to understand their needs, and offer a defined solution.
I will deliver services in a competent, ethical and professional way.
Often, many clients have specific practical problems that they want me to help solve. E.g.:
The necessary information is not available to people who need that information
Ineffective information governance structures or lack of processes, standards, and best practices are hampering the organisation
Information architecture roadmap or major information management components (e.g. MDM, DWH) need to be updated
Company or product takeovers resulted in silo applications and databases and efficient solutions are needed
Data quality is a problem - data ownership, security and privacy need to be addressed and a data stewardship program is needed
Data strategy is an issue, business value of data has been overlooked and business intelligence is not reliable
Business rules and metadata have not been captured, or the documentation is not up to date
Apart from providing solutions to the problems above, I can make contributions in the following areas, amongst others:
Information and data architecture and technical or systems business analysis
Information management and information governance and strategy projects
Design of Internet-based distributed applications with database backends
Data analysis, data modeling, and database and data warehouse design
Advice on or help with enterprise architecture and technical strategies
Advice on package selection,and assistance with planning and integration
Technical leadership and development process improvement
Solving the puzzle so that you can escape the maze...
Information management is about more than catchy phrases and colourful brochures.
With my strong information management experience, I will design
useable information management solution that your business or organisation needs now,
but always with reference to maximizing quality and client focus.
Additionally I can offer the advice and leadership skills during the implemetation phase to make it happen.
I am accustomed to using proven tools, modern techniques and best practices to design solid, reliable solutions
which will meet your and other users' needs and expectations, yet minimising customisation. The solution will minimise your support
and maintenance costs by being technically robust, yet flexible.
I have worked with small to large organizations in the public and the private sectors,
including enterprise-wide projects in the transport, finance, utilities, education, and healthcare industries, and technology vendors.
I am based in Sydney, NSW, but can easily travel to Canberra, Melbourne or further afield
(including regional and rural areas).
My management experience will ensure that timelines, as well as scope and budget, are kept in balance.
I can take responsibility for a whole project, or part thereof.
For better results, choose me to apply my considerable skills and experience to your problem space.
