Rudi joined the RDB Consulting team in September 2009 and as a Senior Database Consultant, his job is to focus on project implementations. Rudi works closely with our Database Consultants on completing installations and configuration new systems (predominantly clustered database solutions, system and data migrations, development and enhancements of PL/SQL programs). On any given day, you can find Rudi providing Oracle Database support such as doing daily database health checks and handling any ad hoc problems for our clients.
Rudi has been working on Oracle platforms throughout his career. He started off as a PL/SQL developer at Enerweb, a subsidiary company of Eskom Enterprises. During his time at Enerweb he mainly worked on the development of backend Demand Side Management (DMP) systems and this role later merged into a developer/DBA role.
After working as a developer/DBA at Enerweb, Rudi joined Saab Grintek Technologies’ Carrier Division and worked on the initial implementation and support team for Mobile Number Portability in South Africa. Thereafter he worked at Utiliworx on a data warehousing project for Eskom, followed by again working on the Number Portability project before joining RDB Consulting.
When Rudi isn’t leading our teams to implement new solutions and provide ongoing Database support to clients, you can find him working on small DIY projects in and around his house. He enjoys spending time with his family and planning his next off-road radio controlled nitro buggy race.
