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 medical imaging in brain research. He published more than 20 peer reviewed scientific papers.
In 2011 Frank received the Oracle Technologist of the Year award for cloud computing. Frank was honoured as Oracle ACE Director by Oracle in 2013 yet continues to work as an independent IT consultant.
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).
