I Left Oracle

I haven’t written on my blog at all in 2020 yet and I have never gone a whole year without blogging so I thought I would share my move out of Oracle that has been my home for 22 years, 7 months and 23 days.

Too many great memories to list, but I took this photo from my office window when I went to clear it out. I am immensely proud of the 8 patents that I was granted (still have a handful pending, it takes several years for them to be granted) not because it is recognition of doing new and groundbreaking things, but because every one of them has multiple names on them. The creative and collaborative work with amazingly bright people are the memories I will hold most dear. I was lucky to work with so many amazing people at Oracle and as we come to the end of 2020 I am a little sad I did not get to say goodbye properly, but I am hoping for a get together with everyone some time next year, maybe to mark one year after leaving!

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.
