The obligatory Oracle OpenWorld Post

Oracle OpenWorld also known as OOW or (#oow10 on twitter) starts on Sunday and this year it’s going to be bigger than ever given it includes Java One.  Up until about a year ago I lived within walking distance of the moscone conference centre so felt very much in the thick of the action.  Now I have moved down the 101 within walking distance Oracle HQ, I feel quite far away from it.  It’s not as easy to pop out, meet friends and colleagues and meet new and interesting people.  However I will be there Monday and Wednesday on the demo grounds – which really is the sharp end of the conference, drop by and see me and I will show you what I’ve been working on recently.  Mention this blog and you get to see me slightly embarrassed.

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.
