DXC Red Rock looking for NZ analytics leadership after M-Power acquisition

22 May 18

DXC Red Rock is looking for ‘an experienced consulting leader’ to fill the position of NZ practice lead within the company’s analytics practice.

The company says the position has become available as a result of its recent acquisition of M-Power Solutions, which was announced in March.

M-Power is a company specialising in Oracle cloud-based, enterprise performance management (EPM) and business intelligence (BI).

At the time of the acquisition, DXC said the M-Power brand would be integrated with the Red Rock practice, serving as a key part of its cloud-first strategy, and strengthening its current EPM and BI practice.

This job listing appears to fulfil that integration strategy, with DXC Red Rock mentioning that the successful candidate will liaise closely with account directors on Cloud Analytics and BI opportunities and drive capability and competence within the practice.

The listing also states that the new employee must liaise with customers and colleagues for the consultation, requirements gathering, design, implementation and ongoing support of cloud-based Oracle Analytics, BI and EPM solutions.

They will also be responsible for staff development and management, playing an active part in the delivery of projects, project management oversight, account and quality management.

The listing also states that the new employee will be working all facets of the business including delivery, project management, support and sales, while assisting with presales activities and providing support, where required, for the preparation of proposals and tenders.

The company says the successful individual will have previous experience working in a consulting environment and will be comfortable presenting to key decision makers.

The individual will also have experience in delivering technology projects, with a clear understanding of all of the key elements of project management.

The successful candidate will be based in Auckland and will report to DXC Red Rock’s NZ general manager.
