Some of our Consultants

Charlie

Business Architect

I have been involved in IT for over 25 years ago and always find myself situated on the cusp of IT and the business.

Starting in the airline industry I supported what was then called 'end-user computing' and thirteen years later was managing an internal systems consultancy group supporting the operational area of the business. A move into consultancy and Differentis enabled me to build experience across a number of businesses in a range of industries including financial services, oil and energy, health care, telecommunications, waste management and even computer games. My role as a business architect is to see the big picture and to use a 'toolkit' of techniques and methodologies to describe the need for business technology change across an organisation and outline the impact such change will have on business process.

Dave

Solution Architect

Over the last 18 years in IT, I have worked in many different roles including development manager, enterprise, solution and infrastructure architect, project manager and technical lead within the Finance, Energy, Telecoms, Retail, Health and Scientific sectors.

I focus on bridging the gap between business and technology, being able to discuss technology with senior business stakeholders and ensure technologists focus on meeting business needs.

Frances

Business Consultant

I have worked for Differentis now for just over 10 years, having previously worked for a large consultancy firm.

I have enjoyed the opportunities and challenges a smaller firm can provide, and Differentis has provided this through the breadth and depth of the types of projects and roles I have worked on. My progression from business analyst to business architect has been based on experience working on large to mid size projects for a wide range of clients: oil and gas, healthcare, financial services, defence, transport. The work we do with clients is often under challenging circumstances, and the environment we have at Differentis always ensures everyone has the right support to get the job done.

Helen

Business Consultant

I've been a consultant for 20 years, the last 10 with Differentis. I mostly focus on business analysis and architecture, but can turn my hand to project management if required.

I usually find myself on long term projects in a variety of industries. The best thing about working for Differentis is the sheer quality of our people. Our breadth of experiences, skills, and reach of our contacts, means we are always valued by our clients, and yet we all continually learn from each other.

Ian

Solution Architect

I’ve worked in IT consultancy for the past 20 years, progressing from programming the bits and bytes inside heart monitors to advising multi-nationals on what technology they should use and how they should manage it.

I still fix problems but these days they are as likely to be business problems as technical ones. Nevertheless the solutions usually involve some technology so the ability to roll up my sleeves and get back to the bits and bytes still helps from time to time.

Working at Differentis is never dull. Since joining Differentis as a Solution Architect I have worked with a global financial services provider to build a new investment business from the ground up, architected solutions to manage warehouses full of car windscreens in 27 countries and helped a national rail operator plan trains better. The roles are always challenging so being part of a firm full of smart people willing and able to provide advice does come in handy.

Louise

Programme Manager

I have over 15 years’ experience of managing projects and programmes across a range of industries. After starting out as a programmer, I decided that project management was the career for me.

I then worked in the life and pensions outsourcing business for 9 years, moving up to a Programme Manager on complex outsourcing development and migration programmes. At that point I decided to move into consulting in order to experience a greater variety of industries and projects, which Differentis has certainly provided me with. Since joining Differentis, I have worked in the logistics, healthcare, construction and financial services industries, spanning work such as developing programme roadmaps, setting up programme management offices, reviewing departmental planning and delivery capability and of course, project and programme management.
