Job Description

As an ERP Solutions Architect, you’ll have extensive financials experience within both Oracle E-Business Suite and/or Oracle ERP Cloud and will provide solution leadership in your role within a wide variety of contexts from pre-sales, through architectural process and tooling design, and customer solution design. You will report to the Head of Oracle Solutions Architecture and work with senior colleagues across the delivery and commercial sections of the practice and be part of a team of 400 ERP consultants across Version1. The Oracle Solution Architecture team (currently 7 strong but growing organically) supports both our Applications Unlimited and Cloud practices, from pre-sales proposals, solution evaluations and recommendations, through to quality assurance, governance, and best practice.

You’ll likely have held senior consulting roles in the past working directly with customers or with other systems integrators, and you will be passionate about defining and developing solutions which meet customer challenges and understand the commercial balance required to deliver these solutions. You will be a high energy, high impact individual comfortable with balancing the demands of multiple assignments and working as both a lone contributor and leading assignments and developing people.

Programme Architectures and Assurance:

  • You’ll have responsibility for the solution architectures for one or more of our customers engagements across Oracle ERP Cloud Applications and/or Oracle E-Business Suite, ensuring they will deliver the needs of the customers through a commercially viable approach. You will be responsible for assuring solutions.
  • Peer-review designs and solutions and provide constructive practical feedback to enhance the outcome for the customer from a quality, speed, effectiveness, and resilience perspective.
  • Identify and manage key risks relevant to the solutions or architectures of engagements.
  • Be a leader in providing innovative solutions to customer problems. When our consultants have a complex requirement from a customer that they are not sure can be technically delivered, you will be the one to come up with a way of making it happen.

Practice Development:

  • You will contribute to the development of key artefacts, methodologies and tools which form solution designs and standards for the delivery of Oracle ERP Cloud solutions. A primary objective of the role will be to enhance our ability to repeat effective approaches, best practices, and delivery models.
  • Lead on continuously development and enhancement of new and existing tools or automated approaches which make our solutions compelling for customers.
  • Contribute to developing the governance and structure across all solutions, artefacts, and knowledge management tools to maximise repeatability and effective sharing of solutions and resource.
  • Provide respected and innovative thought leadership for peers, practice, and our customers.
  • Work with our innovation function to continuously look ahead at how we can stay ahead in delivering world-class solutions for customers.

Pre-Sales and business development:

  • You will contribute to the technology solution for RFI, RFP and bid responses, helping to deliver creative, engaging, winning bid collateral. Your insight will be one of the reasons we will win.
  • Bring knowledge of business models, operating models, financial models, budgeting processes and risk management to the creation of a compelling solution and approach for our customers.  
  • Host customer meetings to understand and articulate business impact of technical strategies or approaches for the customer to guide them to the best way forward for their business.
  • Attend conferences, deliver webinars and work with Oracle to develop the Version 1 brand as a leading implementer of Oracle Fusion. You will be sought out as a specialist in this space.

  • You will need to have deep knowledge of the Oracle ERP Cloud Applications product set and/or the Oracle E-Business Suite equivalent and the associated integration and analytics technologies required to deliver end to end solutions. 
  • You will have a track record of designing enterprise-wide IT roadmaps for an ERP landscape, and likely experience in the development of roadmaps for enterprises. 
  • You will have delivered Oracle Cloud and/or E-Business Suite solutions within a multi-supplier, multi-year, multi-release environment.
  • You will have knowledge of the business processes within your area of expertise as well as a working understanding of other business process areas.
  • Strong influencing skills with the ability to land key decisions with C-Suite level senior leaders and key business stakeholders.
  • You must have experience in a consulting System Integrator environment.
  • You will be able to point to examples where you have influenced additional pull-through business through your work with customers.
