Bram Hoebeke
Bram is a CRM consultant for 6 years now, implementing & integrating various Siebel CRM systems for companies in different industries. When mapping functional requirements to technical solutions I tend to use out-of-the-box functionalities & building blocks, but do not avoid high customizations & extended coding either. Since when written properly, this can power up your environment I believe. With the right architecture, you can control your applications and changes to it extensively. In my blogs, I'll share my experience on this matter and keep you posted on new insights I acquire when searching for integration and communication solutions in my projects.
