I’m the managing partner for Unisys Technology Consulting and Integration Solutions (TCIS) in EMEA. My team is comprised of more than 800 consultants, architects, experts, and pre-sales resources. My organization, which has shown strong growth over several years, has deep expertise and experience implementing mission-critical and data center transformation solutions for multiple clients across EMEA, as well as the associated application modernization and security solutions.
I’m said to be a thought leader in mission-critical information technology transformation programs, including operations and applications. I love having a perspective on new IT architecture models and I’m regularly invited as keynote speaker to talk about topics around organic architecture and cloud IT models. I’m the author of a multi-authored book “The Successful New Technology Project” (“Management des Projets IT”).
Before joining Unisys in 2005 I worked at Dimension Data where I was responsible for developing the Microsoft services practice in EMEA. I also spent time with Sogeti and Cap Gemini, where I led architecture and mission- critical programs. In the late 90’s I became CTO at a joint venture operation between IBM and Dassault Electronics and earlier in my career I served as the French CIO for Amnesty International.
I hold a master’s degree in economical history from the Paris-Sorbonne University and a master’s degree in enterprise business from the Philadelphia Wharton School. Previously I worked for Cap Gemini IAF Enterprise Architect. I also belong to several architects’ networks, mainly focused on modular and “organic” computer architecture as well as computing for non-governmental organizations. I recently contributed to a collective white paper on Cloud Computing edited by the French Information System companies Association (Syntec).
I belong to this generation that grew up with “basic” personal computing, thus bridging mainframe and Generation Y experiences. I enjoy writing and am ready to exchange with you on all these topics.
