I’m very happy to report that, from 1st June, I’ll be joining Accenture Embedded Mobility Services (AEMS).
I don’t intend to say much about my work for Accenture in this blog. However, I’ll make a brief exception on this occasion.
Over the last few months, I’ve had the opportunity to look at what Accenture is doing in the Embedded and Mobility space. I’ve been greatly impressed by what I’ve seen of the vision, the accomplishment, and the potential. I’m looking forward to helping to shape the future evolution of this unit. As smart connected devices become ever more pervasive, with numerous uses across all sorts of different sectors of life, the need for rich expertise is going to grow and grow – to improve the chances of success for projects that create, utilise, and enhance these devices. This is an expertise that AEMS already possesses in large measure.
I’m particularly looking forward to renewing working relations with many former colleagues from Symbian Ltd and even Psion PLC days – colleagues who formed part of the Symbian Technical Consulting / Professional Services group which was acquired by Accenture from Nokia last year, constituting the nucleus of AEMS. These are people I hold in high regard – people with deep skills and integrity. I’m also looking forward to getting to know lots of new colleagues.
I’ll be based in London but expect I’ll often be travelling. I’m going to be busy on Accenture projects, but I plan to retain an involvement in some external projects too – projects such as the book I’m writing and various speaking engagements.
