“I would like to introduce myself as a new employee at Enable-U. My name is Remco Dekker, 44 years old and on 1 September I start my new job as Integration Consultant.
I live in Hoogkarspel together with my wife and our two beautiful children. I dedicate my spare time to my son’s Football Club where I am coach/trainer of his team. I try to teach these guys how to get a little bit better at football, but above all to have a lot of fun in the game. The challenge here is to get the team to function better than the sum of the individual players.
Since 1996 I work in information technology, of which almost 15 years in the field of application integration at a large service provider. I have worked on assignments and projects for both large listed companies as well as the Government, in the field of EAI, SOA and BPM. A versatile job in a rapidly changing world that never bored me. As an integration consultant, you fulfill a central role and get to deal with all facets of a company, in the broadest sense imaginable. On one hand, it is very technical and you work with modern architectures, but often also legacy systems. So it is necessary to understand the many possible platforms in order to set up a stable and reliable infrastructure. On the other hand, you’re in contact with the various functional departments which have information flows that need to be connected to each other. The integration consultant forms the bridge between various disciplines. For that matter, it is like football: by bringing it all together you create a whole that is better than each individual specialty on its own. ”
Remco really knows what it takes to be a great consultant. With specialisms in SOA and WebSphere and, maybe even more important, his personality and soft skills, he will definitely fit in our company and services. | Ilje van der ploeg, Manager Services
