Paul Hardy is a senior ABAP developer at Hanson and has worked on SAP rollouts at multiple companies all over the world. He joined Heidelberg Cement in the UK in 1990 and, for the first seven years, worked as an accountant. In 1997, a global SAP rollout came along; he jumped on board and has never looked back since. He has worked on country-specific SAP implementations in the United Kingdom, Germany, Israel, and Australia.
After starting off as a business analyst configuring the good old IMG, Paul swiftly moved on to the wonderful world of ABAP programming. After the initial run of data conversion programs, ALV reports, interactive DYNPRO screens, and (urrggh) SAPscript forms, he yearned for something more and since then has been eagerly investigating each new technology as it comes out. Particular areas of interest in SAP are business workflow, B2B procurement (both point-to-point and SAP Ariba-based), logistics execution, and Variant Configuration, along with virtually anything new that comes along. 
Paul can regularly be found blogging away on SAP Community and presenting at SAP conferences in Australia (Mastering SAP Technology and the SAP Australian User Group annual conference). If you happen to ever be at one of these conferences, Paul invites you to come and have a drink with him at the networking event in the evening and to ask him the most difficult questions you can think of (preferably SAP-related).
