William is a lead DevOps Engineer in our Digital practice based in our New York office. He works to guide and facilitate the availability of systems in countries across the globe. By creating a baseline for the configuration and security of services, William is able to help the rest of Oliver Wyman's Digital practice work more efficiently, and as a result, turn technical solutions around in a timelier manner.
Over the years, one thing William has realized is that sometimes it's ok to not have an immediate answer to a problem, he says. "We need to focus less on having an instinctive answer to everything and instead, refine our ways of thinking to aid in more deductive reasoning."
Technology is ever-changing; our approach to problem-solving should also be constantly evolving to make sure we’re leveraging the most cutting- edge components and concepts. The most effective solution from a year ago is often superseded by something new that was developed only a month ago
Prior to Oliver Wyman, William performed network, system, and security consulting where he designed and oversaw technical project implementations in industries such as banking, finance, law, and education. His focus has always been partnering with stakeholders across businesses to identify where their interactions relating to technology could be enhanced and to help them work more efficiently and innovatively.
Consulting is a line of work that keeps your mind stimulated and promises that very few situations will be the same when you dive into the fine details. Seeing creativity and innovation come together to formulate the missing piece to a puzzle is a gratifying and rewarding experience
