Born in ’79 and living in ‘s-Hertogenbosch the Netherlands, I’m a principal Oracle Fusion Middleware consultant working for the Dutch Oracle Gold Partner RUBIX. I have been working in the field of process and system integration since 2004, based upon both the Oracle(BEA) and Tibco software stack. Starting in the world of (EDIFACT) message brokers, EAI, B2B and workflow which shifted to the open standards of SOA and BPM we know nowadays. My main technical focus is on the products Oracle Service Bus, Oracle Weblogic and the Oracle SOA Suite. I have worked in different roles as middleware operational support, process and service developer, solution architect, (canonical) data modeler and as a trainer. Main area of interest is middleware architecture, high availability, reliable messaging and security. In January 2012 the Oracle Service Bus Development Cookbook was released of which I am one of the five co-authors.
