About time to share what I’ve learned…

This is my first SDN blog posting.  This blog will primarily discuss enterprise performance management and two of the SAP BusinessObjects products that I am working with: SAP BusinessObjects Strategy Management, SAP BusinessObjects Spend Performance Management, and the integration between other SAP BusinessObjects Portfolio products and these two products.

Here’s a bit about my relevant background: I have been working in the business intelligence and enterprise performance management areas for over 11 years, as a technical consultant and technical writer.  Starting in 1998, I was Principal Consultant at Alphablox, a startup focused on delivering a platform for building and serving custom analytic applications.  Using the Alphablox Analytics Server platform, Java, JavaScript, HTML, and CSS, I built custom analytic applications and provided training for large enterprises, including Deutsche Bank, IBM, Xerox, Southwestern Bell (SBC), and Hewlett-Packard.  While at Alphablox, I used my consulting experience to write the first developer’s guide for the product.  IBM acquired Alphablox in 2004, and I worked there until lured to SAP by a former Alphabloxer (Sanjay Poonen).  Before getting involved in the BI/EPM areas, I worked as an independent Internet/Web consultant, a webmaster, and co-started an ISP.  I also co-authored a book, titled The Internet Unleashed, published in 1994.

In 2010, I look forward to sharing my thoughts and insights about performance management and the SAP BusinessObjects products I work with.

    • my bad in the way I released this blog.  There is actually a subsequent post with content.  I should have suggested to Steven that he roll the two submissions into one piece: an introduction to himself and a first look at his content.  I liked what I read in the following post and quickly released his first so as not to inhibit the posting of the second.
