More About Me

Let me introduce myself.

Profile Picture

My name is Stewart Schatz. I have ITPro of Professional Information Technology experience in a wide variety of technologies. Much to my surprise, most of my career has been spent learning the inner workings of Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne CNC Administration. Why was it a surprise? Because when I started down this road, I thought that it would be a 3-5 year thing and I'd move on to bigger and better things. However, JDE is not a one-dimentional piece of software that you learn and then do 25% of the time. If you want to do it right, JDE CNC is an all or nothing endevor. Now, I'm not just an old JDE CNC or pasty-skinned tech-geek. I also enjoy many outdoor activities like hunting, hiking, camping and trying to keep up with the rest of my family.


I provide world class services as an Oracle JDEdwards CNC Administrator specializing in system optimization, troubleshooting and problem solving, upgrades/updates, and platform conversions (IBM iSeries to Windows). By utilizing my ITPro of professional IT experience in a wide array of technologies, the solutions that I provide are effective, efficient and innovative.

More of my credentials.

Since 1997, I have worked for 1 State Government Agency, 2 Fortune 500 companies, 1 large privately held corporation, one small consulting company and one large consulting company. During that time, I have gained considerable experience with a wide variety of technologies, work settings, organizational make-ups and various industries (State Government, Insurance, Mining, Oil & Gas Exploration, Electric & Natural Gas Utility, Asphalt & Concrete Construction, Railroad, Environmental Remediation, Heavy Equipment Retail, Naval Ship Builder, Manufacturing, US Dept. of Defense Contractor, Logistics Companies, etc.). Although my experience may not be unique if I started as an IT Consultant, I believe that since I was a fulltime employee at most these organizations, it gives me a very unique view into the role of IT in an organization. Not only have I been responsible for upgrades or installations of new systems, I also had to support them afterwards. Because of that, when I install a piece of software, I pay close attention on how it will be supported/upgraded in the future. This forward looking approach is very different than many IT consultants that I have worked with in the past.
