Meeting with Vincent Roque, EPM consultant at Talan

In this testimony, Vincent Roque shares his experience as a consultant at Talan.

Can you introduce yourself briefly?

My name is Vincent Roque and I am an EPM (Enterprise Performance Management) consultant at Talan. Before that, I worked for more than 15 years as a Pharmaceutical Research Technician. I developed controlled release drugs in oral and injectable form for the American market.


What are you currently working on?

I am currently working on Board (an EPM solution) for a large network of corporate daycares and a manufacturer of beauty product packaging.


And is it nice?

It’s very challenging... but yes, it's very interesting!


For you, what does "innovate" mean?

For me, innovating means creating something new, adding value to what already exists.


What skills are necessary to be an EPM consultant?

Being an EPM consultant requires above all a good ability to listen and understand the client's needs. It is also important to have strong technical skills in modeling and programming, as well as a good knowledge of EPM software solutions available on the market.


What is your biggest challenge as an EPM consultant?

My biggest challenge as an EPM consultant is to integrate and customize EPM software solutions to meet the specific needs of each client. This often requires a great ability to adapt and a good understanding of the business issues of each industry.


How do you see yourself in two years?

I really enjoy my job and I am still young in this field with only three years of experience. So, I want to continue to progress and become an expert in my field.


How would you explain your job to a 10-year-old child?

My job is to customize software to meet a client's particular needs. Imagine you want to create an application to visualize and analyze numbers. My job is to organize these numbers into a "cube" like a Rubik's cube, so that they can be modified and displayed clearly and functionally on a screen. Then, the client can use this data to analyze performance.


Any last words?

It's always difficult to explain this job. As they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words."
