Anupama, Senior Manager
Audit and Enterprise Risk, United States
It’s very exciting to be able to use data and analytics to provide insights into clients’ business issues and watching them transition from intuition-based decision making to data-driven, fact-based decision making cultures.
In the Risk Information Services practice, I serve a number of clients on various regulatory and risk analytics engagements. I also represent Risk in the Deloitte Analytics Integrated Market Offering. I worked in the Technology, Media, and Telecommunications Industry for several years before joining Deloitte & Touche, LLP. I chose to build my career in professional services because I believe it gives you exposure to a broad spectrum of business challenges and solutions.
The Deloitte U.S. firm focuses heavily on enhancing the industry knowledge and exposure for its practitioners. It is very powerful to be able to relate to a client based on industry knowledge and actual experience and to be able to bring to them a point of view on specific business challenges they’re facing.
My most memorable project was when I served the Deloitte U.S. India offices as a senior manager leading the Risk Information Services practice. I will cherish that time. I have seen the team grow and expand and become an integral part of the way we do business and serve clients.
I assisted in putting together a Deloitte Analytics Guidebook, and I was blown away by the number of service offerings that have been developed. What’s even more impressive is that 80 percent of those offerings are cross-functional; where practitioners from Financial Advisory Services, Consulting, and Enterprise Risk Services collaborate to bring the best team to the table for the clients.
It is challenging for competitors to emulate that because they may not have the breadth of service offerings and deep industry knowledge. When I joined, I never expected how global my role could truly become! In my years with Deloitte U.S., I've worked with colleagues in eight countries, which has been very enriching.
