I'd describe myself as a "Finance IT Consultant", currently specializing in Enterprise Performance Management related Finance Systems (e.g. Oracle Hyperion EPM Suite).

Since 2004 I've been predominantly working in three areas :-
  1. Oracle Hyperion Infrastructure - For example 11.1.2.x Installation, Upgrade, Patching or Environment Reviews of Planning, HFM, Workspace, FDM, HSF, HPCM, DRM, EPMA, etc.
  2. Oracle Hyperion Data Integration - FDM, ODI, ERPi and classic load rules & SQL to get data into or between elemens of teh EPM suite.
  3. Oracle Master Data (DRM Certified Impl Specialist) - I've worked with DRM since it was called MDM and have integrated it with EBS and Fusion along with extensive Batch Client scripting work.
Initially the above was with ReportSource who were acquired by Deloitte in 2010 (hence I became a Deloitte Manager). within a year I was promoted to Senior Manager, and put in charge of EPM Technical Delivery.

I left Deloitte in July 2011 to become a Senior Principal Architect for Edgewater Ranzal and in October 2012 was promoted to become the UK Infrastructure and Data Practice Manager for Ranzal UK.

In 2013 I left to rejoin the Freelance Consultancy market, helping out at various projects, for a multitude of medium & large clients. It included for example being DRM subject matter expert for HSBC, and (concurrently) installing an upgraded EPM environment for Honda. 
Prior to all that I had focused on Software Configuration Management (SCM) and IT Environment Management. This involved tasks as diverse as creating automated minimum-build compile scripts and control mechanisms (e.g. SubVersion+Ant) for the website, through to managing what parts of the BA World Cargo center real-time equipment were controlled by Dev, Test or Prod Tru64 Unix servers.
All of the above have utilized my wide, yet deep technical knowledge that includes:-
  • Oracle DBA
  • Unix Sys Admin
  • Windows Sys Admin
  • Network admin
  • VMWare ESX Admin
  • Software Development & Build/Deploy 
  • Cloud based architecture
Even further back I had a 14 year career at BT that took me from BT Engineer (apprenticeship) through to systems integration of one of the first distributed Unix solutions (collecting per-second metering information).
