When you have worked with the Oracle Applications ecosystem for almost twenty five-years, and have a track record of successfully helping customers, people tend to ask you a bunch of tough questions on a regular basis.
In the early 90s, being an Oracle expert was much easier than it is today, due to obvious reasons of a smaller amount of products, and somewhat less complexity within the products. Today with ORCL snapping up companies at every opportunity, the ability to be an “Oracle expert” has never been more difficult. One of the most significant evolutions I have seen in the past few decades in the Oracle solutions ecosystem is that of focused concentration on specific areas (DB, Apps, Architecture, etc). I draw a parallel to the medical field evolution, and the specialized focus of a neurologist versus the general practice physician. As lifelong learners, all of us in the Oracle solution space have been gravitating to the focus areas where we can continue to be recognized as experts and trusted advisors to our customers. We have also built friendships and alliances with others that are experts so we can complete the picture as needed in the rapid moving and ever changing ORCL ecosystem. All of this written to say ….
What is John doing today, besides loving life? I joined EiS Technologies recently for two main reasons that have guided my work life since I climbed that little mountain in Tibet. “Do what you love and love what you do” and “Life is short – make the most of it by working with good people”. Working at EiS Technologies allows me to realize both of these lifelong objectives. I’m very excited and energized to become part of the team at EiS. I look forward to contributing to the continued positive growth of EiS. It is such a pleasure to work with a team that is intellectually ahead of the curve and a product that continues to evolve and provide such a positive impact for our customers. I’ll be helping EiS grow by driving the Alliances and Partner program, covering a geographic area from a sales perspective, and participating as a member of the leadership team to help with the strategic growth of EiS and working with good people. If you had the opportunity to meet some of the fine folks at EiS, you know what I mean. If you have not, then reach out to us and see what we can do to help you today.
