icon resProfessional Experience

I offer more than 25 years of commercial I.T. experience with a number of technologies and disciplines.  My background has given me a range of specialist and generalist skills, a mixture which has proven essential when adaptability, responsiveness and an end-to-end approach has been necessary particularly in fast changing and chaotic environments.  

ERP Systems

SAP-LogoSince 1997 my main professional focus has been the support and implementation of a number of SAP landscapes, some of which were the largest of their kind in Australia. My main focus has been the administration of SAP applications security and I have branched out to a range of SAP systems administration, interfacing and operations management dealing with a very wide range of people from the most inexperienced end-user to some of the most senior experts in the industry, major suppliers and the executive personnel.

For the last nine years I have supported one of the largest SAP bureau environments in Australia which concurrently managed a wide array of SAP systems and landscapes including productive ECC 5, 4.6c, 4.6b, 4.0b and even 3.1i environments. With limited resources we successfully managed over 280 SAP clients hosted on 170 instances in 39 landscapes;  hosting nearly 200,000 users accounts, each environment maintained its own distinct conventions and standards which had to be maintained intact.
