Where I have made an Impact

Positions held and places worked

MultiChoice Group

Group Chief Enterprise Architect (Executive G-CEA) 

 

I am the current Group Chief Enterprise Architect for MultiChoice Group, accountable for the management and transformation of the Group-wide IT environment to better serve the changing needs of our customers. My team of business and technology experts consult into all MultiChoice departments and territories. At Group level, we define the long-term technology blueprint, shaping its evolution to achieve Group operational needs and goals. We define Group technology controls and standards that govern changes to the IT portfolio.

At a department level, we align business initiatives with the Group technology blueprint, and design innovative technology solutions in accordance with industry best practices and Group technology standards.

Deloitte Consulting

Senior Manager - Telecommunication, Media & Technology (TMT)

As a Digital Architect and Media subject matter expert, I consulted to the Telecommunications, Media and Technology (TMT) sector on matters of digital transformation, and the modernisation of business operations and technology environments to improve customer engagement. My digital transformation engagements involved the setup of a new Digital Operating Model - introducing cross-functional teams and collaborative networks to deliver customer-centric changes in an agile (iterative) manner across a new/modern digital technology stack. My most significant engagement has been to redefine the digital architecture of a Global Media & Broadcast industry leader - a "green fields" reinvention of its business & technology landscape.

Nedbank

Enterprise Architecture Head – Products & Services

At Nedbank I was accountable for the strategic alignment, management and progressive evolution of the Nedbank-wide financial products and services (P&S) technology portfolio that included Wealth, Business Banking, Corporate & Investment Banking. My primary objective was to transform the outdated Core Banking system into a feature-rich modern platform, that may be reused across all bank divisions, and that may be integrated into a financial partner ecosystem. In addition, I defined the long-term technology blueprint for RoA (Rest of Africa), and established the technology standards and controls to manage IT portfolio change. As a contributor to the Digital Fast Lane (Innovation think-tank), I led the design of new innovative banking solutions.

KPMG

Associate Director - CIO Advisory

At KPMG I was responsible for managing and developing the CIO Advisory consulting practice in South Africa. In addition, I consulted as an IT strategy and Architecture subject matter expert to key account CIO's & IT leaders. I led a number of transformation programmes across the global KPMG client network, providing advisory services to re-define client IT strategies, to direct the sourcing, negotiation and procurement of IT systems, to develop modern IT operating models that support emerging business trends, and to architect and design leading industry technology solutions premised on digitisation. I co-founded the TechEx innovation hub - an internal KPMG function to drive cutting edge product development.

Ovations Technologies

Associate Director - BPM & Architecture

Ovations may be seen as my rite of passage into the IT consulting market. Ovations is a technology start-up focused on IT consulting services, and the development of in-house products geared at the Financial Services industry. As an early start-up hire with beginnings in software development,  i performed multiple roles across a number of service lines and industry sectors. The start-up environment is entrepreneurial, fast-tracking the development of skills in business development, business management & business-lead IT solution design. Over a 10 year career at Ovations, I established a profitable new service line and I turned around the performance of  the flagship business unit - supported by a track record of successful client delivery.

He has always shown vast knowledge in a variety of areas ranging from Integration Architecture, Solutions Architecture, Service Orientated Architecture and latest development and design practices.
