How many years of Oracle Database experience do you have?

A: 11 years.

How did you come to work with Oracle DataBases?

A: I was working in desktop support and someone asked me to install some Oracle software. I found that Oracle database software grabbed my attention more than other software I was working with at the time, so I chose to specialise in this area.

When did you become an Oracle Contractor?

A: September 2005

What is the most enjoyable part of your work?

A: The fact that the software is constantly changing, so there’s always something new to learn.

What is the least enjoyable part of your work?

A: Filling in timesheets.

What has been the most satisfying project you have worked on and why?

A: I’ve enjoyed all the projects I’ve worked on to be honest. The most satisfying ones are where you end the contract with the knowledge that you’ve resolved, or helped to resolve, the issues that you were asked to investigate at the start of the contract.

Which consultant / contractor have you learnt the most from / enjoyed working with the most and why?

A: A friend of mine who took me under his wing when I had my first role with “Oracle DBA” as the job title. He is always very professional within work and I learnt from him that being a DBA isn’t just about being good technically - you also need to be able to use your skillset to benefit the business. You should use the software to fit in with the way that the business wants to do business.

What do you see happening in Oracle Databases as we move towards �Fusion�?

A: Database Management and the management of business intelligence will be more automated, centralised and secure. Access to the information will become more efficient and there will be fewer issues with the integration of separate software products from different application vendors.

What are the hot topics in your area of expertise?

A: Automated management and monitoring of database systems. Database security and the control of information.
Integration or consolidation of separate database systems.

What do you do when you are not working?

A: I sail my dinghy, walk the dog and drink with friends - though not all at the same time.
I have been known to read Oracle text books in my spare time as well.
