Be Careful What You Blog

Just last week, I did a seemingly innocuous blog posting on hot SAP skills. SAP has been doing creative things to find more people to fill tens of thousands of SAP openings.

Well, SAP's creativity reached out and bit me.

While I was happily typing away in my blog, my director of marketing and sales was on the phone talking with SAP about a open position leading their North American adult learning programs. Unfortunately for me, this is a match made in heaven for him and SAP. Based on his background, he is a perfect candidate for the job.

I'm happy and wish him the best of luck training individuals to work in these important SAP positions. Perhaps I should do a blog on the hot openings within my own organization?

About Me

I am a project-based consultant, helping data-intensive firms use agile methods and automation tools to replace legacy reporting and bring in modern BI/Analytics to leverage Social, Cloud, Mobile, Big Data, Visualizations, and Predictive Analytics. For several world-class vendors, I led services teams specializing in providing software implementation and custom application development. Based on scores of successful engagements, I have assembled proven methodologies and automated software tools.

During twenty years of technical consulting, I have been blessed to work with smart people from some of the world's most respected organizations, including: FedEx, Procter & Gamble, Nationwide, The Wendy's Company, The Kroger Co., JPMorgan Chase, MasterCard, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Siemens, American Express, and others.

I was educated at Valparaiso University and the University of Cincinnati, graduating summa cum laude. In 1990, I joined Information Builders, the vendor of WebFOCUS BI and iWay enterprise integration products, and for over a dozen years served in branch leadership roles. For several years, I also led technical teams within Cincom Systems' ERP software product group and the custom software services arm of Xerox.

Since 2007, I have provided enterprise BI services such as: strategic advice; architecture, design, and software application development of intelligence systems (interactive dashboards and mobile); data warehousing; and automated modernization of legacy reporting.
