Professional background

My interest for technique dates back to when I was 14 and build my first amplifiers, loudspeakers and circuit boards. My first encounter with a computer was in 1985, and I wrote my first business applications in 1986 on Unix, Dos and VMS using Progress. I finished a 'bachelor' in IT and Business Administration (AMBI) in 1988, did integrations with AutoCAD, gave programming and CAD training, managed projects and people, developed highly technical applications for the petrochemical industry, logistic software for MacDonald, financial solutions for major employment agencies, specialized in author rights' solutions, done e-commerce, launched web services, build websites and iOS/Android apps, integrated and converted almost everything, and virtualized many servers using VMware. Nerd? Only when I need to, and I love it!

What drives me?

Of course, I could easily presented you the most promising words to describe what drives me. But I’d rather share some of my favorite quotes of Mr Spock (Leonard Nimoy 1931 - 2015).

One can begin to reshape the landscape with a single flower.

Change is the essential process of all existence.

History is replete with turning points.
You must have faith that the universe will unfold as it should.

There is no reason that function should not be beautiful
– in fact beauty usually makes it more effective.


Mr Spock - Leonard Nimoy

  • Recommendation A Chowns

    Andrew Chowns
    (CEO Directors' UK)

    Directors UK is the professional association for British screen directors in the UK with 4,000 current members. DreamLogic has been our principal database and distribution system contractor since 2004. During that time he has provided us with a very high level of service that has ensured that we have experienced minimal problems. He has also been closely involved in assisting us with the strategic development of our systems, both in the conceptual thinking behind new developments, and in implementing the changes.


  • Recommendation Joshua Kappen

    Joshua Kappen

    SWOOP, market leader in refurbished smartphones and tablets, is growing strongly and asked Eric Plugge to deliver consultancy for the replacement of existing software applications for the physical shops, repair-departments, eCommerce and financial administration. Eric was able to produce a profound and clear mapping of the organization, business processes and existing systems very rapidly and soon after came with a long- and shortlist of possible vendors. Eric organized various live demonstrations and meetings in a discrete, transparent and professional manner, followed by  weighing the pro’s and con’s, risk and feasibility analysis, plus a review of the conditions. Eric’s  knowledge and experience took a lot of work off our hands, and also convinced us that we made the right decision, SERAC and SAP B1.
