I’ve been cheating on my Blog

I have been spending time writing on another blog, it’s nothing you did, it’s about me.  I was drawn in by the star studded list of other guest bloggers such as Steve Miranda, Terrance Wampler and Steve Boese and I couldn’t resist when the offer was there to guest write on the Oracle Applications Blog.  Now that is out in the open I feel better, I mean you were all going to find out eventually but I wanted you to hear it from me.  I have to confess I was nervous at first but I was encouraged to be myself and then it was much easier.  My first draft was kicked back at me and I was asked to make it more personal, when I read the first draft again I realized it was like a marketing release, I wasn’t speaking in my own ‘voice’.  So I reworked an example I used here a while ago and I felt got my point across and it’s now a very personal post, drawing on my love of toast in the mornings and relating it to embedded BI.  So I would strongly recommend pointing your RSS readers at the Oracle Applications Blog.

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.
