I am a South African working at a cloud application integration vendor in Johannesburg; my role is Head of Marketing. Previously I did product marketing for South African-based global ERP (enterprise resource planning) vendor SYSPRO.

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.

  1. Simon,

    Thanks for leaving a comment on my site regarding the SAP Global Survey. I would love to ask you some questions on South Africa for the survey to be posted on my site. If you are interested, could you ping me by email. Thanks, so much.

  2. Hi Simon,
    I came across your blog recently as I was doing some research on ERP. I had
    a few questions and was wondering what would be the best way to get in contact with you to discuss a few of them?


  3. Hi Simon. Id be interested to see what project management software you are using for your ERP work. We use Vertabase (http://www.vertabase.com.) that enables teams to focus on innovation because it supplies web2.0 tools that enable creative conversations and group wisdom. What are your thoughts?

  4. Hi Simon,

    I have been following your blog for a while and thought of you when i was given a recent video piece to promote. That is because its about ERP systems and manufacturing. Its done in a humorous style and i think you will quite like it. I was wondering whether you might be interested in using it on your blog.
