I have been an independent consultant working with Oracle products since 1994. I have worked with multiple applications, architectures, technologies and platforms in different industry verticals - Manufacturing, Aerospace, Energy, Financial Services, Semiconductor, Healthcare, Software, Retail, Department of Defense, Utility and Federal.
I have led panels, sessions and delivered an extensive array of business and technology projects from start-ups to leading S&P 500 global companies my project roles included enterprise/solution architecture, enterprise implementations/upgrades, fit and gap analysis including business process optimization, project management and global rollouts. My process and delivery background includes market certifications such as CCP, ISP, TOGAF and EATI and recognized as an industry expert by Oracle as an Oracle ACE link below:
Lets get straight to the topic why hire me or independent consultants with my corporation:
My business model is completely transparent. That has helped me grow my business and currently have clients in Asia, North America and Europe.
Let me explain and get to the details, I bill my clients the consultants rate and increase the rate by a negotiated amount, and provide full access to contracts & documentation – Complete transparency with all clients.
The client services include:
Free Access and usage of the Oracle Unified Method (OUM) for people that don’t know it’s the single implementation methodology designed to be used for all Oracle product implementations
Direct access to Oracle Product Development teams in Palo Alto, UK and India.
Today’s business climate and growth of enterprise software send more and more companies around the globe to deliver their products and service. I am committed to offer continuous service on various issues equipping the clients with latest changes and developments affecting their business. I believe in ensuring highest standard of ethics in all work to maintain Independence, Integrity and Objectivity.
I provide quality assurance on all deliverables; I am a strong believer that every project job is a self- portrait of those who did it. Hence I autograph the work with a second eye view towards quality.
6 reasons Why and when to hire us?
1- Staff augmentation – for those short to medium-term staffing needs
2- External change force aka “political cover”. It can be hard for companies to do what’s right sometimes, hiring consultants can be a way to reach the desired conclusions with sufficient political cover in case certain parties are unhappy
3- Best practices across industries and functions – consultants have the rare privilege of:
▪ Serving multiple clients in the same sector
▪ Serving multiple clients facing similar problems across different sectors
4- Analytical horsepower solving issues and executing strategies where their skillsets and knowledge are insufficient.
5- Fresh perspective - Companies often need a fresh set of eyes – you’d be amazed at the amount of value consultants can add based on the most mundane observations and insights. Critics contend that this is an example of consultants selling “glorified common sense”, but for front-line client employees, it can be easy to fall into daily routines without a critical eye towards measurement, analysis, and improvement.
6- Training and skillset augmentation
I’d argue that every consulting project – particularly ones with heavy client interaction incorporates client training as a major ingredient. The best recommendations are worthless if clients can’t implement and maintain suggested changes. Thus, a large part of what consultants do is educating client employees on necessary knowledge, skills, and mindsets.
