Footnote: Though I have no formal training in c-s platforms my previous employers
sent me for training in both legacy and c-s systems. The skills (both hard and soft) I
acquired was accumulated over a span of 37 years by rolling up my sleeves and getting
my hands “dirty”. Concurrently I fine tuned my skills by investing in books, periodicals,
technical journals & development tools specific to a particular domain which I was then
engaged in. Fortunately I had good teachers and was a willing pupil. Listening more and
talking less represents my ethos in whatever undertaking I happened to be in. I am a
very hands on person. I have implemented 3 ERP systems, 2 on the users’ side and 1
from the vendor’s side. They included SAP R/2, SAP R/3, MYSAP and Peoplesoft.
