Officially Graduated !

On Christmas Eve I received my graduation paperwork from CSU.

While focusing on management skills has given me some great insights and helped me develop some invaluable skills, I feel its time to turn my attention back to some technical challenges.

Luckily as I (as of a few months ago) now work for one of the world's best BI vendors (more on this soon), I have plenty of that on the horizon !

Graduate Certificate in Management (Technology)

For anyone considering postgraduate study, I would highly recommend the programs at Charles Sturt University offered through IT Masters: IT MASTERS .

You can do a full MBA if you are a glutton for punishment.  For me, as I work fulltime (and then some) as well as having a wife and two young kids, I found it too great a burden time wise to go beyond the graduate certificate (at least for now) so I only did the graduate certificate.

Details of what I did are here ( scroll down to the graduate certificate section) :  Graduate Certificate in Management (Information Technology) .  It was well worth doing and although it took me way out of my comfort zone, it was extremely valuable and I highly recommend it !

Cheers.

Busy year - time for a new chapter !

As of 4 days ago, I completed my last assignment for my Graduate Certificate of Management from Charles Sturt University.  Its beens a busy year and while its been really valuable, I look forward to having some free time back !

This is not the only change i'm making however - I've decide to go back to consulting.  It will be great to be back at the coalface (Ineed a more environmentaly friendly metaphor !) helping clients across Asia Pacific.

More details to come !

Happy new year - A present from SAP

I got back to work this year to find that over the break SAP had release Data Services 4.1 Service Pack 3.  This contains a lot of fixes, especially if you are a Salesforce.com user.

I think you will need access to the sap portal to view it, but the release notes are here:

DS 4.1 SP3

Now to shake of the Holiday cobwebs and get cracking with 2014 !
