The Armchair Architect

One of the more powerful additions to Oracle financials in R12 is the Subledger Accounting Architecure (SLA or SLAA) and it brings new concepts and terminology which may be hard to figure out.

The good news is there is a blogger to the rescue.  Anne Wong is The Armchair Architect and she’s starting to get SLA content up on her new blog.  I’d like to claim some credit as I badgered her into starting the blog, hopefully she will get regular readership and positive feedback to keep her momentum and get all that knowledge from her head onto the web so we can all benefit.

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.

    Anne has great SLA knowledge – of course she does have a day job, so it will take some time for her to get it all out. She is also open to guest posts – so if you have anything get in touch with her via her blog
