Why work in our Digital Enablement capability?

Jon Hay

Digital Enablement is a fancy way of describing how technology can support and enable organisations to work smarter, flex faster and generally make day to day employee life better through effective use of technology.  

At Sysdoc, we understand that Digital Enablement is not just a matter of technology, but how we mere humans interact with that technology; it could be the best system in the world, but if nobody can use it then it might as well be a very expensive doorstop. 

Working as part of the Digital Enablement team you will be working with other multi-skilled individuals putting your technical skills to the test developing creative solutions to varied and complex problem statements with human-centered design as a core pillar for everything we do. We are collaborative and supportive of each other, blending our skills to ensure you are always playing to your strengths whilst also giving you the opportunity to expand your skillset. Our customers are often ambitious but unaware of how they can do technology better, we try to promote innovation through edge technologies (where sensible) and take a pragmatic, common-sense approach. Autonomy and creativity is encouraged, and we take the view that everyone has a voice; if you’ve got a better idea on how we should do something, we’ll run with it.

You will work with a range of web-based frontend technologies, platforms as a service and bespoke backend solutions where we feel we need to augment an existing system or technology to get a better result for our clients. We blend technology, user experience and the (world famous) Sysdoc DNA into everything we do giving you a much broader workplace experience than simply writing code; understanding why we are writing code is just as important as the code itself, what are we trying to solve and why.  

You will work within SCRUM or Kanban methodologies (depending on the size of the project) where we regularly review how we are performing, how we can perform better and celebrating our successes. Our projects are typically a mix of innovative user interface, intelligent information design and future & upgrade focused application design – we want our solutions to be able to evolve and improve without racking up technical debt over time. 

Testing and quality assurance play a key part of working in the team through paired programming, peer reviews and effective testing strategies. We never underestimate users and take a defensive approach to solution implementation ensuring that the user always gets some feedback and knows what to do next if something goes wrong. 

We are a social and close-knit team (as is the wider Sysdoc team) and have regular get togethers (albeit virtually now) to have a beer, chat and catch up on recent events or other cool stuff going on in the tech and wider world.

The increasing need for management consultants

Interesting insight was gained after attending the MCA event in central London. There were two panels of consultants that spoke. One being experienced leading consultants, and the other, young emerging consultants. Discussions ranged from the importance of diversity in a workplace to generate success to mental well being in organisations today.

Getting full value from your investment in SAP S/4HANA

There is an accelerating demand from SAP customers who need to migrate from SAP ECC to S/4HANA before the December 2027 end of support deadline. Moving from ECC6 to S/4HANA is not an upgrade - it’s the adoption of a new way of working. To realise the full value of any S/4HANA investment requires a robust business change programme, an organisation-wide commitment to core process adoption, and a more agile approach to adopting innovation.

Social Housing – Rising to the challenge

Rising to the challenge The housing sector, like any other sector, has faced challenges and changes over recent years. The political and environmental landscape continue to have an impact and the ramifications of the Grenfell tragedy are still not clear. These challenges combined with the impact of COVID-19 forced housing organisations to further evaluate the specific issues that impact their services, solutions, and support to tenants, pushing them towards new ways of working and enhancing the digital journey.
