Welcome to my blog

So I have started my own blog. Been thinking about doing it for a long time now, and have procrastinated it even longer (now that can't be, can it?).

Most folks I hang out with at conferences are bloggers. Well, I have blogged on other sites before including OAUG's Knowledge Factory and Oracle's OTN (more about these later). The tipping point was when Oracle gave me a "Blogger" ribbon at OpenWorld - that is when I decided to start my own blog.

After that, all I needed was an auspicious date! So why today? Today is the 3 year anniversary of Innowave Technology,  a professional services firm that I founded in 2005 to provide unique, innovative solutions using Oracle Applications and Technology, specifically leveraging Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Oracle Fusion Middleware. It has been an exciting three years of growth and several successful projects. Innowave was recently recognized and awarded the Oracle Excellence System Integrator of the Year award at Oracle OpenWorld. More about Innowave later.

I realize that blogging is all about commitment. A commitment to constantly keep you abreast of the things that interest you. This blog though, given my 20+ years of working with Oracle products, will be dedicated to all things Oracle: technology, products, applications, solutions, innovations, programs, initiatives, users, success stories, user groups, conferences - pretty much anything to do with Oracle. So if Oracle doesn't interest you, this is not the blog for you :o)

As I write this first post, it dawns on me that I have so much to share.  I do plan to come back often and I hope, so will you.


  1. Welcome to the blogosphere!
    Look forward to your thought leadership on things SOA & Fusion.
    Congratulations to Innowave for the SI of the Year award!
    Warm Regards,
