Things to do at Oracle OpenWorld

Looking for financials sessions at OpenWorld this year?  I would start with this list from Theresa Hickman and if you are interested in the Record to Report / GL area, then the Oracle Apps User Group (OAUG) has a Special Interest Group(SIG) for you and they will be meeting on Sunday.   As I posted earlier, I’ll be chatting about Legal Entites in EBS R12 and giving a super quick sneak peak into Fusion GL.

One thing I always plug is the Demogrounds, this is the place to go if you want to spend some quality time with a product and an expert form Oracle on that product.  You will often have a chance for one on one discussions and demos and get to the answers you are particularly interested in.  We will have two dedicated Fusion Fiancnails demo pods this year.   I’ll be there on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon, so come please drop by and see the most compelling product I have ever had the pleasure of working on, the title is “Oracle Fusion Financials Delivers Revolutionary Reporting and Insight”

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.
