A New Chapter

Steven Chan
Senior Director

I had no idea what would be in store for me when I started this blog in 2006. Thousands of articles, comments, emails, and customer interactions later, it’s clear that this decision opened up a now-essential way of communicating with you. 

2019 marks my 21st year with Oracle. I’ve had some major life changes in the last year, so it seems like I’ve reached a good juncture to reflect on what’s next for me. Starting in February, I will be taking a hiatus from my current responsibilities in EBS Development.

Over the next few days, we’ll be introducing the team in EBS Development who will be taking on my blogging responsibilities. In the meantime, the following key people will be leading the new blogging team:

  • Kevin Hudson
  • Elke Phelps

They've got a great team and are committed to keeping this blog useful and informative. I look forward to seeing what they come up with next!

    Thank you for providing that "extra" nugget of information over these years that made our "EBS life" easier. You have gone beyond when I contacted you directly on specific items and was surprised by your attention to my issues and your personal follow ups.

    I wish you well in the next chapter of your life. I, along with all of us who followed this blog over the years, will miss your presence.

    Take care.
