  • (The consultant) has been very effective in his current role. He has architected, designed, prototyped and overseen implementation and governance of the new, strategic, transaction accounting platform for DB... His knowledge and experience of the transaction accounting domain has been instrumental in moving the TA platform in spite of business requirements not being well specified at times. In this regard in particular, (the consultant) has exceeded our expectations of his role... clearly a strong team-player. He is never protective of his extensive skills and knowledge and always willing to use them to enrich the team’s capabilities
    -- Project Manager, September 2012.
  • He was always willing to listen to feedback from members of the Transaction Accounting team and adapt any proposals to incorporate that feedback... Conversely he was able to argue constructively against any proposals that he felt contravened the strategic view that TA put forward, producing counter proposals where necessary. All these helped that collaborative and productive partnership between the teams for which (the consultant) played a key role... (The consultant) has been extremely effective in his role here.
    -- Michael Luchmun, CTB Schema Design Lead, September 2012
  • Right from the outset I realised that both (consultants) were accomplished practitioners in their own right... (one had) a deep understanding of many business products and the upstream systems coming from a background of research and trading systems. With his quick thinking, analytical skill and dedication he quickly gained the respect of the accounting SMEs; ... (another) brought up-to-the-minute expertise in service based architecture, object oriented analysis, design and C++. His tenacity, grasp of technology and ability to persuade rapidly commanded the leadership of the team of newly assembled developers. It was the way in which the consultants worked together that really cemented the project’s lasting success. Rather than confining themselves to their respective duties, they forged a lasting partnership and integrated their problem solving abilities. Each was inspired by and improved the ideas of the other and their complementary experiences and knowledge sets ensured a broad scope delivery. Their hard work, proactive style and effective cooperation allowed a fully featured prototype to be delivered after just six weeks. Then, earning the technical leadership of their team, they specified, designed and built the core of a flexible system (and, later, an extension) which is still live a decade later. Their joint problem solving, articulation, lateral thinking and industry knowledge would be a formidable asset to any program. Testimonials of partnerships, as opposed to individuals, are unusual, but this pair is much more than the sum of its parts.

  • The consultant was extremely effective at assisting the IT and business teams in understanding how the rule engine functionality would strategically assist us in our business rule modelling... His approach to consulting was unique. He was not trying to just sell us the new product (or impose on us a solution), but he quickly learnt the MS accounting business model, then found effective solutions on how to adopt the product to our business needs...
