Stewart’s too modest to mention it on the blog himself, but I just wanted to congratulate Stewart Bryson on being awarded Oracle ACE Director status by the Oracle OTN ACE program. Stewart was given the Oracle ACE award a few years ago to recognise past work he’d done for the Oracle BI, DW and ETL community, but this higher ACE Director award recognises the ongoing work he’s since been doing to share his knowledge and experience with the Oracle community. For a taste of what he’s been doing recently, check out this recent article on OTN on migrating OWB to ODI, where he goes through ODI12c installation, and then walks through several scenarios for interoperating with, and migrating to, Oracle Data Integrator 12c.
I also wanted to take this opportunity to share the exciting news that Edelweiss Kammermann, who many of you will know from her work with the Latin American Oracle User Group community, joined us back at the start of this year to work with Robin Moffatt in our training development area.
We’ve known Edel for many years, and she came over to Brighton last year to present on BI and SOA/BPM at our 2013 BI Forum. Edel is initially working with Robin on developing our new ODI12c course, followed later on in 2014 with our new BI Apps 11g course, and she’ll be delivering training in Europe, USA and Latin America later on in the year. We’re incredibly pleased and proud that Edel has joined us, and being an Oracle ACE herself, we’ve now got two Oracle ACE Directors, and two Oracle ACEs, in the Rittman Mead team.
I’m sure you’ll all join me in congratulating Stewart, and welcoming Edel to the Rittman Mead team!
