I’ve been working for the past 15 years in the IT-Sector, including 12 years at Oracle, as a Programmer, Analyst, Team Leader, Client and Solution Architect on the Middleware / Integration / SOA area. Since 2011 I’ve been leading the SOA and Security tracks of a transformational enterprise wide migration at one of Portugal's largest privately held banks. From 2009 to 2011 I was the lead architect for a number of SOA Excellence Programmes on several public sector entities in Portugal. I’ve been involved in several projects on the Banking, Communications, Utilities, Healthcare, Insurance and Public Sector industries, with in-depth experience implementing integration and customization solutions as well as a solid background on the Expert Services area. The start of my career at Oracle as a trainee (for 1.5 years) on Technology Pre-Sales, has given me a good background of workshop, prototype and demonstration environments.
