Senior Application Portfolio Management Consultant

Join us in this role where you’ll collaborate with colleagues across Ørsted IT to optimise our technology and application portfolio throughout its lifecycle. You’ll be driving our application portfolio management processes to align our way of working in an agile organisation using SAFe. You’ll work together with over 120 architects and our agile delivery organisation to perform deep dives into different technology, commercial, and business domains to drive initiatives to rationalise and optimise for our digital journey ahead.


Welcome to Architecture & Technology
You’ll be part of Solution Architecture & Tech Portfolio Center of Excellence where you, together with your colleagues, will be running and improving our application-, and technology Portfolio Management ecosystem. You’ll be helping different stakeholder groups across Ørsted IT to answer questions, such as which applications and technologies to invest, migrate or eliminate, are we adequately supporting the right business capabilities, or how well our application portfolio develops to support future strategic goals by setting the standards, built frameworks and grow our LeanIX platform. As a team, we’re involved in building a sustainable green energy company, with diverse culture around the globe, whilst ensuring great cohesion and collaboration to build a successful Architecture community.


You’ll play an important role in:

  • driving our processes to oversee and monitor the current and future development of the technology and application portfolio, ensuring these processes are adopted and followed by our key stakeholders
  • providing guidelines and ad-hoc consultancy for various stakeholders on modelling practices and data quality to ensure better visibility of portfolio
  • defining commercial methods and metrics to assess applications and their overall fit with the application portfolio and Ørsted IT strategy
  • overseeing the value creation and benefit realisation of anchoring technology standards in our agile organisation through relevant measures, together with responsible architects
  • supporting the application architects in understanding the commercial aspects of COTS applications, such as contract and license improvements, and ensuring proper utilisation
  • identifying areas of improvement in our common data foundation to answer the key questions of today and tomorrow for our application portfolio management.


To succeed in the role, you:

  • have substantial experience working either as an IT consultant or analyst or as an application, system, or application or solution architect, managing applications on group or portfolio level
  • have moderate experience in building and anchoring processes increasing efficiency and reducing complexity
  • have an analytical mindset and are used to developing different scenarios for decision making, preferably in a global setting
  • are a strong team player who wants to proactively pursue opportunities to improve our IT landscape in a global organisation.
  • have some experience with the commercial side of technologies, such as contracts, licenses, or similar, requirements gathering, prioritisation and delivery to different stakeholder
  • have strong communication and presentation skills in English, both verbal and written.



Maybe you’ve read the above and can see you have some transferable skills, even though they don’t quite match all the points. If you think you can bring something to the team, we still encourage you to apply.
