A Day in the Life of a Technology Consultant

By 29th January 2019 96 Comments

My name is Kam and I’m currently a Associate Technology Consultant Namos Solutions. I joined Namos in September 2018, as part of their Graduate Scheme in 2018 – I studied Politics at Queen Mary University but moved into the world of Technology, as I was captivated by Technology. To begin a career in Technology, one does not necessarily need a degree in Computer Science although it is helpful.

Technology Consulting roles can range from the chance to be a Functional, Technical and Techno-Functional Consultant to being a Project Managers, DBAs and Sales Representatives. I am currently supporting the implementation of Oracle projects on a Functional and Techno-Functional basis; helping a variety of teams implement modules of, full roll outs of and migrations to Oracle Cloud. In addition to supporting the product management of an in house SaaS product called the Namos Real Estate Cloud.

Oracle is the world’s leading enterprise software company. At Namos Solutions, we develop solutions for clients using the Oracle Suite (Cloud and On-Premise) by understanding a client’s business processes and IT architecture. One of the most enjoyable elements of working for Namos Solution, that I help deliver a world leading enterprise solution to a growing client base, so there are ample opportunities to grow, learn and get involved with global projects. In joining Namos Solutions, you’ll have the chance to work with leaders in the Oracle world.

 

There is no typical day as a Namos Consultant, but a normal day I would be:

  • Attending meetings with the client, the team (from the CEO to other grads), with Oracle and a range of stakeholders (whether that be other software vendors or contractors). The nature of such meetings will involve understanding a client’s need and requirement gathering, and analysing where Namos can offer a solution against this. For example, Namos analysed the needs of Staffordshire University, and understood its implementation of Oracle Fusion required careful integration with other software.
  • Travelling to client sites and any other associated admin work (you may need to book your travel and hotels to another country!). Consulting can take you across the globe and the UK, we’ve worked in Italy, South Africa and Namos are excited to be arranging projects elsewhere.
  • Learning (at Namos you’re encouraged to learn as much as you can about Oracle and even take certificates), attending industry events, and building my network.
  • Engaging with implementation work, project management, requirements gathering, spreadsheet work and testing For example, I built a spreadsheet plan of users with their needs/roles (information gathered from a client) and then set it up on Oracle, and then I would implement the plan by testing and tweaking the functionalities against the needs I mapped. With ERPs, there needs to be a careful allocation of a user’s role against his or her needs.
  • Creating Data Models, Reports, and doing some more Technical work when requiring. Being a technology-focused organisation, there is an abundance of technical work one can engage with; some work I’ve engaged with includes ETL processes and using inbound outbound data export/imports. To meet the requirements of a client, as Oracle needs to integrate with other systems. It involved using SQL to create a data model and extract the data required, transforming the data to the necessary fields and loading into/out of Fusion with the native fusion processes.
  • Testing and checking functionalities of products to meet the acceptance criteria defined in requirements and UATs; for example, can the right users submit an invoice through Oracle.
  • Preparing documentation, spreadsheets and presenting progress reports to customers.
  • In addition to attending trade shows, Oracle events, supporting recruitment and sales and even being part of the sales process. As a fast-growing technology consultancy, there is an abundance of technical and more business orientated work that you can engage with – your skills will be nurtured in this process and you can learn a lot.

 

Example of our projects and some of the work you could be doing:

We helped Building Energy in Italy implementing Oracle Financials. The team travelled to Italy to understand the financial processes of Building Energy and then re-designed them using Oracle. We offered a solution tailored to the organisation’s international needs. Building Energy needed reporting on an international basis and we tailored Oracle to this.

 

At Staffordshire University, we’re implementing Oracle Financials. This involves designing, setting up, monitoring and testing the Oracle Financials against the university’s needs and customers (students). After gathering requirements (i.e. who should be able to add/remove users, who will send invoices…) from our client, we tested if the users had the right roles within the system and designed hierarchies to reflect these requirements. For example, we configured Oracle Fusion to ensure the right employees had access to the right functions of Oracle and the right manager, meaning processes worked smoothly!

 

Overall, you’ll strategize, design, test, install, implement and monitor new systems for leading clients. Key skills to any consultant are strong communication and presentation skills, eagerness to learn and adopt new ideas/technologies, problem-solving/analytical skills, hawk-like eyes to pick up details and decision-making skills. Lastly, you’ll need to be passionate about technology!
