Interesting R12 Upgrade Session at Open World

A session I hope to attend at Open World is the one by Nayyar about Oracle’s internal upgrade to R12.  I spent some time working with Nayyar and his team earlier this year and it was a good experience, at times it was very tough but it’s been very valuable. Oracle has a lot of Intercompany transactions and does use AGIS, so they give the product a decent work out. I also represented GL and as I have taken over GL more recently this was a really good chance for me to learn more about how a large GL customer operates and the things that are important to them. I was motivated to help them out when needed not least because they literally pay my wages.

Author: David Haimes

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.
