I am a strong believer of "RPG+DB2+IBMi -an intimately integrated application programming stack".
My goal is to design a working solution as soon as possible and help business realize the benefit sooner. I have accomplished myself as a JDE WORLD Techno- Functional consultant with 14 years of ERP experience, I use data as the key driver for making optimal design decisions, in-depth knowledge of JD Edwards (World) and Business Processes and extensive background in IBM i application customizations (including legacy AS/400 applications). I am inquisitive in nature at work and have an excellent presentation, motivation, communication skill. Problem solving continues to be my sweet spot, chasing data is my driving force. I have recently developed a great taste for supply chain and analytics.
