A conversation with Mark Wilson, Solution Consultant for ABB.
Mark has worked for ABB since 2003, focused on how IT solutions can be applied to solve real-world business challenges. Mark has worked with large scale organisations in many industries, including Marks and Spencer, British Telecom and Barclay’s Bank.
What do you hope the audience will learn from this webinar?
My wish is that the webinar attendees will gain an appreciation of the supply chain benefits that can be delivered by the cloud in general and by Axis in particular. And, that realising those benefits is not a difficult, risky or costly leap of faith. The capabilities described in the webinar are delivering value to organisations around the globe and we’d like more companies to join them. I hope the audience will also learn how to smuggle the names of several progressive rock bands into a presentation.
What discussions do you look forward to having with the audience?
I’ll be keen on hearing reactions to the messages in the webinar, with a focus on the pain points that are being experienced today in their procurement processes. I’d also be interested in feedback, either good or bad, from audience members that have already have had some exposure to the electronic supply chain.
How did you get into the industry?
I joined the IT industry many years ago; rather more than I care to remember. I started as a systems programmer on a mainframe system and have taken a journey, via several jumps, into the business side, covering a number of different application areas, for example, GIS, mobile solutions, and latterly e-commerce and procurement.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Finding effective solutions to real-world business problems.
Where is your favourite place in the world?
Pretty much any guitar shop.
