Matt Duffy FCCA
Senior Business Analytics Consultant
“What excites me most in our space are cloud trends and continual improvements in the Azure breadth and depth that allow us to deliver true end-to-end solutions for clients; for operations, management and even portals for their own clients.”
Matt is one of those rare individuals who bring together excellent analytics capabilities as well as extensive business sector knowledge and a keenly commercial outlook. His extensive experience extends across business analysis, project management and software engineering with a breadth of roles in industries including Financial Services / Wealth Management, Intellectual Property and Telecoms. His process includes quickly assimilating business models and working closely with clients to develop KPIs, conducting analyses, identifying value-adding opportunities and aiding data-driven business management.
“Something that has always resonated with me is developing management information dashboards and working with clients to establish what’s important to them in terms of KPIs for their KPAs, developing ideas jointly or independently to stimulate client thought processes and working iteratively to deliver results that the client can use to derive real benefit.”
Matt is a Chartered Certified Accountant and Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (FCCA) as well as an experienced Software Developer, PRINCE2/Scrum certified, and has experience of a wide range of technologies including SQL database and reporting platforms including MSSQL, PostfreSQL, MySQL, Cognos, SSRS, Crystal, MS Access and Power BI among others.
“My management experience enables me to action thought processes through exception / evidence-based management which involve putting myself in the shoes of our clients’ audiences. I prioritise a click-economy mentality, ie giving the users what they need in the fewest clicks possible and focus on getting results.”
Some of the many projects that Matt has been involved in delivering include MI/KPI dashboards, Analytics(forecasting, customer/case churn, budgeting, performance management), Data Warehouse migration, Accounting/ERP system migrations, system implementations, credit control, continuous improvement initiatives and FATCA reporting.
Outside of his busy role at The Summit, Matt is a keen athlete in sports that include golf, rowing and running, and holds the ambitions of achieving a sub-3 hour marathon time and to shoot under-par golf at La Moye.
“With sport, I am not satisfied with simply taking part, I want to see how well I can do, and invest time and energy into learning and development; training and testing different methods and approaches. I apply this same mindset to my role at The Summit, always wanting to learn, improve and achieve faster, better results for our projects and our clients.”
