What makes the OATUG mission meaningful to you?

OATUG has been an integral part of my career.  During my initial days of ERP Implementations, I used to seek guidance on how others have implemented, and I was able to quickly learn and implement through OATUG knowledgebase.

As Cloud migration is accelerating, there is a tremendous opportunity for every enterprise to establish robust data governance, transform business processes, enable digital transformation with AI/ML and automate processes to delight users. My goal is to collaborate and share my cloud learning that would help other OATUG users thereby enabling more people to effectively utilize Oracle Products in Cloud efficiently in line with OATUG mission of community of people powering progress.

Why are you running for the Board, and what skills, connections, resources and expertise do you have to offer the organization?

As current chair of Cloud ERP SIG there is a critical need to support enterprises in their cloud journey to guide and support to expedite transition. I have been volunteering with OATUG for many years in various capacities as well have presented sessions in different topics specially in Oracle Cloud applications and Master Data Management which enables me to share this with broader OATUG audience.
