I'm a software architect/developer, product strategist, and operational manager focussed on enterprise software products. I'm interested in meeting local entrepreneurs and founders to share experience and offer support.
I've spent the last 14 years developing business intelligence and enterprise performance management products for Oracle. I've led engineering & product management/strategy teams, managed complex release/delivery processes for widely used, enterprise-scale software products and worked at the senior levels of Oracle's product development organisation. Prior to that I have built and delivered products in the collaboration/workflow and multimedia categories, both for large companies (e.g. Borland) and smaller companies - in the latter case helping the founders achieve successful exit.
I'm currently taking a bit of a career break but also exploring some ideas that bring together collaboration, process management, business intelligence and social media concepts/technologies to enable communities (public and within enterprises) to define, execute and improve their operations more effectively.
I've worked for Borland and Oracle and was involved with the product and team integration of acquired companies including Hyperion, Siebel, Weblogic, Collabra, Endeca, Sun, Peoplesoft. Also worked closely with industry analysts (e.g. Gartner, IDC, Forrester), partners (e.g. Accenture, Cap Gemini and many smaller BI specialists) and customers (particularly across Finance, Public Sector, Telco/Media, Retail). .
