Top 5 posts of 2007

So this is the time of the year when every media outlet takes a break from creating real content and creates top lists of anything they can think of from the past year and why should I be any different? Letterman has a whole team of writers that help him do this all year round and he reached a deal with them, when other show hosts will have to write their own monologues – poor things. I think I have proved in the short time I’ve been blogging that I am capable of creating a post with little real content, yet people still read them – so you only have yourselves to blame, by clicking on the more link that is coming up very soon you are just encouraging me.

There is a similar list to this on the Ebizsig blog based on hits, I gave bonus points to my posts for links to on comments on and the top 5 look like this:

1) How do I define my Legal Entities?

2) Is Oracle Cool Again?

3) Intercompany Reconciliation Reports just got Interactive

4) New Intercompany features in R12

5) Cleaning out my closet

I started this blog in November so it is only about 6 weeks old and I’ve been surprised and encouraged by the interest in it. When Jake introduced me to the Oracle blogosphere he mentioned his surprise that I hadn’t come up with a more clever name and that’s something I will try and fix in the new year. I also want to keep this blog going through 2008, but I do have a day job(those Fusion Apps won’t build themselves no matter how good the middleware is), so I have to get the balance right I think ‘almost daily’ is a realistic target.

So wishing anybody who has made it this far without clicking away a very Happy New Year and let’s hope 2008 is as fascinating as 2007 has been for me.

I'm Senior Director in the Oracle Research and Development Organization, with close to 20 years working in various roles on the development of the Financial Management product suite.  Since the summer of 2016 my focus is exclusively on working with customers and longer-term design work, particularly around next-generation functional and technical architecture. My task is to figure out NOW what the financial management system of the next 3, 5 or more years should look like and start working toward it.  At the moment the majority of my time is spent working on Blockchain or Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT), leading the effort for all of SaaS applications.  I'm also interested in AI, Machine Learning and new UX and interaction paradigms such as chat bots. I started out in Oracle UK and found my way out to Oracle's Redwood Shores, California HQ in May 2000.  My previous role was product owner for Fusion Accounting Hub, General Ledger, Intercompany and Legal Entity products in Oracle Fusion Financials and eBusiness Suite General Ledger. I have also worked on EMEA Globalizations, Federal and Public Sector Financials, XML Payments and a variety of projects on other products down the years.
