Nathan van Rooyen

Head of COE: Enterprise Architecture and Intergration Services, MTN

As an IT professional, I have spent my time on the business end of the industry more than a pure technology/technical focus. This has made me strong in understanding the need for, and creating alignment between business and IT. I have been involved in multiple large IT and Digital Transformation initiatives over the years. From the early days of online banking, which changed the way customers engage with their bank to e-commerce for retail businesses. As part of core IT management functions, I have overseen and been involved in multiple large IT sourcing restructures, enterprise integration and enterprise re-platform/re-architecture projects. In addition, I have been leading IT functions that provide stable, secure and agile IT operations for businesses that serve millions of customers. What differentiates me, is the ability to see the intersection of business, technology and customer experience and the ability to create and deliver large scale transformation through leading people.
