Tell us about your role. What does a day in your life at Capgemini look like?

Currently, I am in SAP Innovation and Architect team and my focus is on solution integration in our clients enterprise IT landscape but not limited to it. My responsibilities include meeting with clients to understand their needs, purpose integration architecture, delivery integration programs, coach junior team member(s) along with the project delivery. Other than this, I am also involved in discussions with AIE team for innovative ideas.

My day typically begins with reviewing the tasks currently in my hand and then I decide the priority and action plan for each item. During the day, it’s a mix of program development, short learning, meeting with clients or colleagues, preparing specifications for the projects, joint program debugging with colleagues. When the day approaches the end, sometimes I join online meeting that is run by the SAP community or training courses running by Capgemini to close the day. Every day is unique, exciting, and full of challenges!

What’s the best thing about working at Capgemini?

Being working at Capgemini since 2021 October, I enjoy the endless learning opportunities each day and it’s the best thing I would say. I recently finished Capgemini Architecture Core Concepts and Modelling course run by Stephan Taitz and Kusuma Viru. Through the course, it gave me in-depth knowledge to be an IT architect to deliver work and values to my clients. Another program that I am attending now “ConnectedManager”, helps me to level up my management skills and a brand new way of thinking to handle situations in my day-to-day work.

What makes you proud to work at Capgemini?

The seven core values that Capgemini puts into its core are what I agree with and admire the most. Apart from it, Capgemini is always walking at the top of each area, from environmental sustainability, quantum computing, to the recent innovation brain-to-computer interface “Connecting the Mind to a Drone”. I am proud to be part of Capgemini. 

 How are you working towards the future you want?

This month is the month to define my annual objectives and performance development plan. Through this process, I can plan, think through, and discuss with my reviewer regarding my KPI, career development, and focus area in my current position. This essential process could help me to shape “the future I want to be” in the coming years. 

 What advice would you give to someone joining Capgemini?

Being with Capgemini is still less than a year. I would say “be fun and bold at work; be open and honest to people.”
