I have been working with my previous company for more than a dozen years – over that time the name on the sign over the office entrance has changed many times, and is indeed about to change yet again but a lot of the people have remained constant.
My role, too, has also changed a few times, but all the while reflecting my involvement with databases and Oracle in particular; I have been a developer, database architect, data warehouse designer, service delivery manager, project manager, BI consultant, practice leader, Oracle partnership manager and a host of other titles that I either can’t or won’t recall.
But the time has come to refocus myself and to spend time doing the things that I want to, things that I want to do because I love doing them. First off, I move back to being a customer facing technologist. This in effect means becoming a technical mentor to my customers, talking about their difficulties with BI and data warehousing, suggesting solutions (which may mean education or training, or actually getting down to hands-on stuff)
I will write more on this next week as plans develop, but for now I can say that I am very excited about my new role.
