The July 2015 issue of Sync Magazine features Atkins North America, one of the largest design and engineering firms in the world, as a thought leader. Atkins is a Project Partners customer and a user of Oracle applications and technology.

The article An Appetite for Disruption articulates, “It’s the role of IT leaders to evaluate and explain how emerging technology can provide a competitive advantage.” It includes an interview with Randy Martin, director of corporate systems at Atkins North America.

Researching and implementing forward-facing technologies is an integral function of a modern IT department. “IT needs to become a strategic partner with the business,” Martin says. “My time is not best spent on implementing yet another ERP system with high costs and low value. Instead, I’m exploring and validating a new technology, then returning to the company with a proposal for improved service to our clients. Atkins looks to trusted advisers like Project Partners, LLC, for input into project-centric systems.” With the rise of cloud computing, SaaS, and even infrastructure-as-a-service, the traditional functions of IT are becoming commoditized. Staying current on the latest technology trends is one way IT can remain a relevant business partner.
