Summary

SAP Consultant | Business Process Analyst | PI/PO Integration Project Manager | SAP Expert

Areas of expertise include ERP specialising in EAI implementations and data migrations. In particular, I specialise in technical integration of SAP with non-SAP systems.

Systems integrations can be complex, however they are not often as fraught as they are made out to be by many technical experts.

While possessing a large body of technical and functional expertise in all aspects of SAP - in multiple modules (FI/CO, BW, HCM, PM, MM, TM) and specific hands-on PI/PO technical integration skills, my advantage comes from knowing how to simplify and clarify things, particularly in large corporates.

There’s a mythology around tech integrations that the project is so complicated that a few people can be included. Consequently, integrations are often carried out by consultancies in an opaque manner.

The result is inevitably an unnecessarily long project and a lot of room for scope creep, when the reality is the more transparent these integrations are, the more likely they are to be on time and on budget.

As a freelance consultant, my role is to put the customer first and along with inclusivity something not always present in IT projects which makes a positive difference.

Client satisfaction, in my experience, comes from collaboration and a transparent vision of logical flow and explanations - from Proof of Concept right through to when I hand over the documentation to others. So when I’m not there, they know exactly what they have and what to do next.

Pragmatism, preparation and clear focus – and the ability to communicate that to the project team – are the keys to the success of any project.
