Dr. Frank Munz is an expert in middleware and distributed computing. He earned a Ph.D. in computer science from the Technische Universität München for his work on distributed computing and brain research. He published more than 20 peer reviewed scientific papers.
Frank has over 15 years experience working for and on behalf of top middleware vendors and consultancies such as ConSol, Sun, BEA, TIBCO and Oracle, throughout Europe and Australia as a software architect, project manager and developer. In 2007 Frank founded munz & more - a cutting-edge consultancy focusing on Oracle middleware and cloud computing (see http://www.munzandmore.com). Based on over a decade of teaching experience with the big vendors, and its limitations, Frank is offering his own high-end training program world-wide now (Cloud Computing, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle WebLogic Server Architecture, Operations and Development, Performance Tuning, Oracle Service Bus 11g).
He loves to talk about features and showstoppers and frequently speaks at conferences all over the world.
