Information and Analytics Centre of Excellence Leader

Market disruption is driving a lot of change in the energy sector; business capabilities that were once desirable or best practice have now become essential for business success. EnergyAustralia recognised the need to adapt to the changing market early on. I’ve been part of our transformational journey from day one, and it has been fantastic.  I saw this as an opportunity to do some of the best work in my career.

Strong enterprise information management is an essential prerequisite to meet our current and future business goals and I have been responsible for the development and execution of the Information Management strategy. 

Our project has been widely recognised and was selected to feature at an Oracle Open World event in San Francisco. I accepted an Oracle Excellence Award for the Japan and Asia Pacific winner in the Data Warehouse and Big Data Leader category for the implementation of the strategy.

Oracle told us that the typical delivery time for the technical implementation is 18-24 months – our amazing team got it done in six months. Being agile and having great leadership enables us to do this.

More recently, my team also won the coveted “Database Administrator of the Year” award for Japan, Asia and Pacific, and “Rising Star” award from ITNews Australia.

Accepting global awards for our projects recognises the great work the team has done. 

I feel that EnergyAustralia has always encouraged me to be competitive and be my best. I thrive in this environment and enjoy seeing how we can improve as a business and also for me as a technical professional.
