Michael Hickins (pictured left) was the editor of The Wall Street Journal’s CIO Journal. Now he works for Oracle. He gave up “unparalleled access to some of the most interesting people in the IT industry, and some of the brightest business and political leaders around the world.” But as a reporter, his view was limited by what these exceptional people wanted him to know. His desire was to get closer to the source—closer to the people who make and use technology. His article in Forbes captures his enthusiasm for Oracle and its technology.
