Senior integration consultant in the full lifecycle of an interface: from analysis to retirement for cloud integration as well as for on premise integration.  I have a very broad knowledge about different integration topics (B2B, EAI, SOA, EDI, web services, µ-services…).  I master as well SAP PI/PO/CPI as Webmethods.

I like to share this experience by providing my own trainings, coaching my customers to obtain better results out of their software or by organizing strategy workshops in close cooperation with all shareholders to determine a long or short-term plan for their integration platform and processes. 

I gathered a lot of experience in healthcare, the chemical industry and in logistics.
