Why did you join Oracle?
I joined Oracle Japan as an E-Business Suite Financials Consultant in 2007 seeking two things: to work globally and to try new challenges. Oracle provided this challenging environment to develop my career, and there were two turning points.
First, when I joined the Fusion Applications team in 2012 I was able to travel to the US headquarters a few times to work work with the development team supporting my projects. This collaboration with our internal developers strengthened my understanding of the products and how to create more cohesive solutions for clients. Second when I became a line manager for the ERP Cloud team in 2016 I built the readiness for ERP Cloud implementation. This prepared me with skills to lead business development for the ERP Cloud Consulting business and position me as cloud partner.
It was not always an easy path, but it was very rewarding.
How is it like to work in Oracle Applications Consulting?
Oracle Applications Consulting does not just implement systems; we are trusted advisors to our clients. We talk with customers, listen to their unique business goals and propose custom solutions with our products that will meet their needs. Internally, I also get to work closely with our functional applications teams as well as technical services, product, and development teams to create cohesive solutions. I really enjoy these partnerships, and since SaaS products are growing every day, I always have new things to learn.
What inspires you in your role?
The most rewarding part of the job is to make customers satisfied by implementing Oracle Cloud and helping them unlock the full value of our applications. In addition, as a manager, I love to find my team members satisfied and rewarded. Their growth makes me happy.
