Thanks to Marian from The Feature

I spent almost two hours yesterday chatting with Marian Crkon from The Feature, which has the excellent tag line ‘Using Oracle Applications without losing your mind…’. This was my first interview for another Blog and I enjoyed it. Those who know me, are well aware of my ability to talk a lot and offer my thoughts an opinions without too much encouragement, but Marian has some good insight on Oracle Apps and blogging.

As I am a relative newcomer to the blogosphere, unless you count my experimental foray in 2004, I have been surprised by the number of blogs about Oracle Apps and how strong the community is. We’re getting much better at blogging at Oracle, there are a number of Apps bloggers but we can do better and we should take a look at the work of places like The Feature and the other blogs listed to the left on my blogrollfor inspiration. Marian and I were both first round picks in OraBlog Tag that Jake started so you should certainly check that out too as a way to find some new and interesting blogs or new and interesting things about bloggers you think you know already.

If you are coming from The Feature to take a peak at what I do here, look around or do some tag surfing and see what sort of information I’m putting up. I hope you will check back again and find this an interesting and enjoyable place, add comments and tell me what you want to see more of in the coming weeks and months.

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.
