Case Reviews, Papers and PAMtutorials

After over 20+ years working with Oracle (the product, not the Company) and Oracle E-Business Suite (since Release 5) I have been lucky enough to have been involved in many organisations and a diverse range of E-Business services spanning from strategic planning to problem solving and database administration both nationally and internationally. I have visited hundreds of sites and pretty much seen it all when it comes to Applications Administration. Since the late 1990's I have spent more time sharing these learnings and have been a regular conference presenter at OAUG conferences internationally. The most popular papers and case studies I have presented are available here, as well as links to all of the PAMtutorials . I hope you find them useful!
