Hi, we are Damien McAullay and Joel Nation and we are Oracle Fusion Middleware Senior Solution Architects based in Canberra, Australia. Our role is to provide expert advice to customers on how to use the Oracle Fusion Middleware stack. This blog is our place to share knowledge and discuss things that we find customers are struggling with. It’s also where we will post summaries and links from our regular Oracle Middleware Forum presentations.
I’m a Software Engineer who loves to design products and speak to clients. A real rarity in the IT world. Whether it be speaking to potential clients or in front of audiences at conferences, I’m always at home with the material and exude passion for my topic. With a background in a mobile and web-based systems I’ve worked or consulted for many government, small business and large multi-national clients.
In a pre-sales capacity I’m able to understand the technical specifics of products and identify opportunities where we can solve real-world problems for clients. I work well with an organisations sales force, understanding not only the tech side but also the business decisions in the sales process.
In a product architecture capacity I’ve designed and developed multiple commercial products, including the award-winning Titan Framework (a rapid development framework for mobile and web apps).
In a post-sales capacity I’ve worked on some of the largest big-data projects in Australia as well as providing consulting experience to clients in Canberra and around the APJ (Asia-Pacific-Japan) region.
I’m an IT enthusiast who loves solving real-world problems with leading-edge technologies. I enjoy spending the time to understand a problem and solve it practically and efficiently.
I’ve previously worked at some of the largest technology companies in the world, Federal Government, and in academia.
I have experience with some of the largest portal systems in the world, large-scale enterprise IT, and providing ultra-highly available services.
