I have been involved with the world of SAP since 1997. First of all as a Basis Consultant (then renamed to a Web Application Server Consultant!), before moving into Portals at the end of 2001 with the first release of EP5 (oh what a fun product that was!).
I taught Basis / Security and Enterprise Portal courses for SAP in Europe and the USA between 2002 and 2006, before moving back into a normal consultancy role I am now in with Capgemini in the UK.
