Orion Consulting provides expert services for all aspects of Information & Communication Technology (ICT), ranging from configuration of software, end-user support and networking (both LAN and WAN) to project management, policy studies, system design, problem solving, programming, network design setup, ICT environment studies, streamlining, etc .

I also take part in development projects as well as in project design, implementation and evaluations.

Orion Consulting is primarily a one-man business, but additional resources are contracted as required. Since 1996 the company’s operations have focused on projects in southern and eastern Africa, working extensively with project management and ICT consultancy services while helping developing countries to computerize their government services. Other assignments have been carried out on behalf of non-governmental organisations and private companies.

My name is Orjan Sinclair and I have more than 25 years of experience working in the private and public sectors, gained mainly in Sweden and Africa. After completing studies in computer science in 1984 I worked for various private companies before starting at the Swedish National Taxboard in 1989. From 1996 to 2000 I was the project manager for a SIDA-funded project assisting the government of Zimbabwe in computerizing its taxation system. After completion of the project I have worked in Tanzania, Mozambique, Zambia, Malawi and South Africa as well as Zimbabwe. The assignments have included everything from working with governmental Integrated Financial Management Systems to providing IT support for NGOs and companies.

Over the years I have also taken part in or implemented and evaluated various development projects in Europe and Africa.

I am a supporter and user of Free Open Source Software, FOSS, both as a superior method of developing software as well as an excellent tool to cut costs in utilising ICT in developing countries.

On my computers you will mainly find Kubuntu but I have long experience of using and supporting Windows versions (both desktop and server) since 1996. For more information and a copy of my CV, please use the contact form.
