Read our interview with Rogerio below.
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am 35 years old. I am living in Rio de Janeiro and I have over 9 years of experience in Management Systems. During these years, I have been working as a consultant and auditor in different industrial segments with Environmental, Health and Safety. In some projects, I had the opportunity to have contact with the SAP system and identified an opportunity to contribute to IT through my experience in the operational area. Because of that, I started looking for a SAP Academy and I found the K2 where I started my specialization in SAP HCM using the Learning Hub.
What was your most recent K2 project?
The recent project was in Rimini Street where I worked as a consultant to support the Company to be compliance with Federal Legislation of Brazil, Speed – eSocial, through the SAP System. The scope of the project was the extraction of information on the Human Capital from the SAP System using a technical specification. The technical challenge in this project was to show for IT that there were issues in the SAP System that impacted not only on compliance with the legislation but also the operational processes in HR, PY, PA and EH&S. When it was possible to make IT and Operational Area to understand the impact, I got develop the project.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
In addition to the opportunity of working with different people and have known different processes, I enjoy helping different sectors of a Company understand each other’s needs.
Which technical development do you think will have the biggest impact on your field over the next few years?
I believe that the higher the requirement of the subjects to be treated about sustainability, the greater the need for technical development in all sectors of Company.
What advice would you give to someone who is starting out as a freelance IT consultant?
Know and understand the operational processes that require the help of the IT area.
