Oracle OpenWorld: The Fusion Apps WOW factor

This certainly felt like my busiest OpenWorld ever, but one of my most enjoyable.  I’ve already blogged my What, Where and When and I pretty much did all I planned to do.  I spent a lot of time at the Demo Booth for Fusion Financials and really enjoyed people’s reaction to Fusion Applications.  My favorite incident was when I was showing to an Oracle representative and his client who was an experienced Russian lady who had a lot of questions and then wanted to see a demo, all my answers to her questions had to be translated so she would mostly be looking at the interpreter.  However during the demo  she just looked over at me and smiled instead of looking at the interpreter and the amazement on her face said it all.  It seems the WOW factor needs no translation.

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.
