I am a South African involved in the ERP (enterprise resource planning) software field, and work for ERP vendor SYSPRO in Johannesburg; my role is Product and Industry Marketing.
My career spans technical and database programming; data warehousing and decision support software; marketing and business partner management; and over 10 years of ERP sales, support and project management. I have worked in and around JD Edwards, Microsoft Dynamics NAV and SYSPRO.
Although I have never worked with any pioneers of ERP, I was fortunate enough once to work with date warehousing pioneer, Ralph Kimball.
