It has been said that nobody wants a drill – they want a hole. Similar nobody wants an IT system – they want a business solution that enables them to be more efficient, more productive and able to offer their customers more. We want consultants that can allow our clients to do their business better by understanding what they do, building a solution that optimally meets their requirements and project managing the delivery. Our consultants need to bring business experience, knowledge of IT solutions and inter-personal skills to bear, working across disciplines and teams.
Such multi-skilled individuals are rare and we want to find and nurture the very best. We do so through unique leadership and a flexible and trusting environment. The Head of Consulting, Dr William Webb, has a PhD and an MBA. Recognised with multiple honorary degrees he has been President of the IET, CTO and CEO of companies and has over 20 years of consulting experience. William has nurtured many who have gone on to senior and influential positions in their fields. Top people are no fans of mindless bureaucracy which is why Affini remains small and flexible, but able to punch well above its weight. In such an environment good people can quickly make their mark.
The next decade is going to be one where big data, the Internet of Things, cloud computing and artificial intelligence change the world around us. Those who can understand the implications of this and devise bespoke solutions for clients such as major airports or the largest pharmaceutical companies, can shape that future. We work with high flyers to turn them into tomorrow’s leading edge experts.
Innovation comes from individuals but only succeeds in the right environment. We are that place.
