Principal Consultant and Project Manager for Antaes Asia
As part of my professional journey, I wanted to take on a new challenge. As such, I arrived in Singapore to join Antaes Asia in September 2019 as a Project Manager. Created in 2007 in Switzerland, Antaes is a consulting company, specialized in Information Systems and Organization. Antaes is operating in Singapore since 2016 to accompany customers of the Financial Services industry.
The particularity of my work at Antaes Asia is that it presents two distinct aspects; indeed, I am initially a consultant in my field of expertise, but I also intervene as a Principal Consultant within the company, and it is the richness and variety of my position that I wanted to share.
Antaes disposes of diverse consultant backgrounds resulting in a wide variety of expertise. With all that diversity, they have one thing in common – they are all outstanding practitioners in their fields.
To accompany Antaes Asia’s growth and structuration, a new team of principal consultant has been promoted at the end of 2020. Being personally interested and motivated by this new role, I have applied my candidature and proudly nominated as one of the five principal consultants for Antaes Asia less than 2 years after I joined them.
Principal consultants keep on serving our clients with expert assistance in their domains of expertise. They also provide assistance to the team, and contribute to other projects on top of their main project.
For example, as part of this role, I have been supporting new joiners (onboarded to one of our clients) with assistance and knowledge sharing on governance topics, project management and business understanding.
In addition, they are active in assisting the business development effort, by actively participating in account management, developing (or adapting) the packaged offers by Antaes and developing new partnerships. As such, one of the Request For Proposal (RFP) I have been working on was an analysis and support for a Workflows RFP for global bank using SharePoint and NINTEX Workflows.
This role is both interesting and fulfilling, as Principal Consultants are able to be involved in many aspects of the company life, but without losing sight on their own expertise and knowhow on specific topics.
In addition to my role of Principal Consultant, I need to keep on serving our client with my expertise and provide them with adapted solutions. I’m a Project Manager for Data Solutions, Automation and Transversal Mechanisms, currently working as an expert consultant for a global bank.
My current mission includes many subjects, among which:
- Project Management of a SharePoint team
- Project Management as part of the AIX T LINUX Program
- In charge of the migration of four assets: Workflow Automation (Automation tool based on FileNet – IBM), an Automation tool based on FileNet – IBM, DataWarehouse (Data Platform on Oracle 12rc2) and BOInfo (Reporting tool based on SAP BO)
- Project Management on transversal topics
- Project Management as part of a large Transformation Plan 2024
As a project manager I’m responsible for planning, organizing, and directing the completion of specific projects for an organization, while ensuring these projects are carried out on time, on budget, and within scope.
This is a personal achievement to be able to finish projects on time, to ensure quality of the deliveries to execute High-Impact Projects in my daily work as a consultant, but also to be able to help on the business growth of Antaes Asia (SG & HK).
I feel really valued at Antaes. Each consultant is guided to achieve his personal goals and objectives.
Becoming Principal Consultant and continue to grow as project manager was one them. Many more new and exciting challenges are now on the road with Antaes Asia.
