I started my IT career in 1982; worked in the IT department of a manufacturing company for 15 years; worked as a Project Manager, Consultant, and Senior Consultant for a number of IT companies; started working as an independent consultant from year 2000; mostly worked on IBM mid-range machines (System/34, System/36, AS/400); also worked on IBM Mainframe in 1988-89.
I have worked in manufacturing, insurance, banking, and health care industries. I have worked in India, Belgium, Singapore, the UK, and the US.
My total IT experience is 30 years, out of which Project Management experience is 16 years. I do consulting for the AS/400 (all phases of the SDLC). I conduct training for the AS/400, System/36, and COBOL. I have worked on seven ERPs (Movex, J D Edwards, MACPAC, JBA, Prism, MAPICS, and RentalMan).
I am a commerce graduate (1977) from the Bombay University. Post graduation, while I was working for the State Bank Of India, I completed Diploma in Computer Management (1981) from the Bombay University. The accounting I learned during graduation proved to be useful in the IT career.
I have got a multiple-entry US Business Visa valid up to 2016. I live in Pune (India) and don't mind traveling to other places for a short period.
If you are wondering whether or not I can provide good support because of the physical distance, here's some information that would help:
I had a Chicago-based AS/400 client having Movex ERP. I used to provide application support. I have got a Broadband Internet connection. I used to connect to the customerís AS/400 using the VPN & the Net. I did this for two years. Then this client of mine was acquired by a competitor and was forced to go with the competitorís system.
