XaaS Lead to Cash / Quote to Cash Technical Architect-Manager
Our Telecommunications, Media and Technology (TMT) industry clients include some of the most valued companies in the U.S. and many of the world's top global brands. We are poised to help clients shape their evolving business models, scale and transform their operations, modernize their processes and technologies, and constantly improve their customer experience. Our Technology sector includes the world leaders in software, semiconductor, Cloud, analytics, cyber, networking, enterprise and personal computing, and technology services.
XaaS Models -long employed by High Tech companies-create significant value for both customers and the companies that adopt them. These models are profoundly different from traditional business models and will require a very different set of business capabilities so that customers are able to access, consume, and pay for services based on need and usage-from content to technology infrastructure and enterprise software solutions-in a flexible, scalable, and secure manner.
Deloitte has guided numerous companies through business model transformations towards XaaS while employing in-depth knowledge of new business capabilities, processes and complex interrelated systems. We are seeking an experienced leader with expertise in new capabilities across the entire Lead to Cash value chain, including the areas of offer management and delivery, pricing, sales, configure-price-quote, subscription management, service provisioning, subscription billing and invoicing, and revenue recognition.
