Paul Kappes



Paul has over 20 years of technical consulting experience drawn from many successful ERP implementations at various clients both large and small. This has included deep expertise in a wide range of technical disciplines including architecture, databases, operating systems, design, development, support, performance, scalability, security, testing, training, and mentoring.

In the last few years, as clients have become more focused on virtualization, Paul has been able to draw on his wide range of expertise to deliver value to clients in a wide array of newer disciplines such as: cloud architecture, mobile/web services, data analytics, process automation, machine learning, cyber-security, IoT, and blockchain.

In addition to Paul’s wide range of experience, he is also very customer focused. Paul especially enjoys working with clients to tackle their most complex and risky issues thereby minimizing the client’s time, money, and resources, while maximizing their performance, value, and satisfaction.

Paul lives in Southwestern Michigan with his wife and two children.  Paul enjoys spending time at home with his family and his two dogs.
