I’ve started my professional career over 25 years ago as a developer.
From the beginning I was trying to bring together science and IT.
One of my first projects was to create a production planning and scheduling, supply chain management, sales management and wastage minimization application for large manufacturer in corrugated cardboard industry, which allowed me to use different areas of Operational Research and Management Science.

More details on one of my favorite production Scheduling apps that has been running for 20 years now is available on the following link:
At that time I’ve also become a member of Operational Research Society.

My later projects are related to sales, production, inventory and finance planning and optimization, where I’ve used ARIMA (Arithmetic Integrated Moving Average method), Neural Networks and other statistical methods which where 20 years later named Machine learning.
My first experience with Oracle database started at early nineties, when I was still a student (Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb).
From that time I’ve been focus on troubleshooting, performance tuning, SW architecture, design and development of large heterogeneous systems based on Oracle and Open Source technology.
From 2006 I’ve been working with Oracle Retail product in one of the largest installations in Europe which I found is probably among the most demanding SW at the market, due to the nature of business processes in Retail industry and taking into account the size of the company for which I’m working for.
I am also a regular lecturer on Oracle User Group (OUG), Java and Open Source conferences.
At the end of 2019, my web site:
was awarded for one of the best Oracle blogs out there, based on content quality, authenticity factors, uniqueness, data security and a bunch of other aspects.
Blog is considered as reliable and trustworthy and for that reason Expertido added it on its best list.

In 2017 I become a member of HIPEAC (European Network on High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation) society which gave me the opportunity to have a lecture, write articles and exchange ideas with the most knowledgeable European scientists.
Besides all mentioned, I’m most excited with exploring new technologies such as Machine Learning, AI and Big Data, which fit perfectly as technology complementary to Operational Research and Management Science, my favorite field of Computer Science.
For that reason I’ve joined Croatian AI (Artificial Intelligence) society.
More about society you can find on the following page:
My motto is: If it is all about more powerful servers, more memory, more CPU, faster storage and network, then companies will need only money to buy a new hardware, and no one would ever need expert engineer to optimize the enterprise stack, who can create solution which brings significant improvements into your business.
Reality is a bit different.
