I'm Shinichi. I'm a seasoned technologist and an independent consultant.
My focus is on data-centric technology work. I help organizations:
- create better processes around data, and
- architect/build/implement IT systems that leverage latest technologies.
What makes me different?
I'm a physicist turned software engineer turned entrepreneur. I have spent many years in start-up trenches, and I am adept at wearing many different hats.
In addition to keeping up with the latest technologies (e.g., big data, cloud/edge computing, AI, blockchain), I am also familiar with various business challenges, from organizational leadership to sales and marketing.
I'm quick to understand how existing businesses work, how data underlies the various processes, and how to organize the data and deploy technologies for business value extraction. And I understand the challenges for an organization to transition to take better advantage of the data.
Finally, I am very client focused. I believe in delivering business value to my clients, by understanding the clients' goals and aligning my work accordingly.
What can I do for you?
Technology Advisement to Intrapreneurs and Entrepreneurs
I work primarily with entrepreneurs (or those that are entrepreneurially minded) who see pain points and want to build solutions for them. For those organizations who do not (yet) need a full-time CTO, I can:
- Provide technology guidance to the leadership team
- Help evaluate product/market fit
- Architect/Engineer an MVP (Minimum Viable Product)
- Help recruit/vet an engineering team
- Provide deep technology guidance to the engineering team
- Provide mentorship
- Build a product roadmap
- Build a data strategy
I sometimes engage as an independent evaluator of existing technologies and solutions.
Technology is evolving at an unprecedented rate. Yet, often businesses get entrenched in legacy technologies that hand-cuffs them into old processes and makes them stagnant.
I can review the existing technologies from the viewpoint of the evolving business needs, and determine if a more modern solution can better serve those needs.
