As our Dynamics 365 (D365) Solution Architect, you will have key responsibilities in bringing Avanade ERP solutions to the market:
You’ll create and implement Avanade’s D365 Solution strategy, working closely with Microsoft’s and Accenture’s D365 teams and any 3rd party add-on vendors.
Managing the solutions portfolio in defined target sectors and industries, you’ll create a roadmap, define and analyse functional needs and follow up on the release plan. Managing R&D budgets and ensuring excellent collaboration across countries will also be part of your daily focus.
It will be your responsibility to ensure consistency between the solution plan, baseline scope, estimate and the resulting proposal and contract. You will also closely work with the Delivery Lead to transition the solution plan and ensure their understanding and agreement of the documented solution. Outside Avanade, you’ll be regarded as the evangelist on Avanade’s D365 solutions across channels & customer events.
As part of our focus on Knowledge Sharing, you will organize internal knowledge and skills development opportunities for all solutions in the portfolio and ensure that the complete solution offering is known to the team and across geographies.
We will also count on you for active support in the (pre-) sales cycle; creating marketing materials, providing detailed insight in RFI/RFP stages, giving demo’s, creating delivery plans, etcetera.
During the project implementation, you’ll play an active role as Application Architect, ensuring the solution is delivered to the customer within the defined quality and scope.
