Antony Bourne – Vice President of Global Industry Solutions, IFS

Antony BourneAs Vice President of Global Industry Solutions, Antony leads a team of global industry experts who cover IFS’s focused industries and supports sales, marketing and partner enablement. Antony has over 20 years of experience in the IT industry, including working in the manufacturing sector.

Prior to joining IFS in 1997, he held Business Analyst positions with Ford Motor Company and AlliedSignal. During this time, he implemented ERP applications as well as business process improvements.


How did you get into the industry and what do you enjoy most about your role?

I started as a business analyst at Ford Motor Company in the early 1990’s and helped them install a new ERP package when the plant was sold to another company, and after this an opportunity arose to go to Ireland to be trained in SAP, but then had a call from IFS and have been there ever since.

What motivates you?

I love seeing new technology and how it can make a real difference in people’s lives, everything from the Amazon Echo which is now my mum’s best friend through to IoT connectors on pest control devices!

What will the audience learn from attending the webinar?

I hope that the audience will see that companies are taking advantage of what digital technology can give them today and also gain insight into what they need to be aware of before launching into new digital change projects.

How are you hoping to help IFS grow in the near future and what are your plans for 2017 and 2018?

I hope that I will be able to talk to people that have never heard of IFS and open their eyes to an alternative solution that could have a big impact on their business. As for my plans for the coming year(s), I just want to keep on learning new things and to help companies take advantage of a solution that will help them be agile in an ever changing world.
