Introducing Elke Phelps, Guest Author
By Steven Chan-Development-Oracle on Nov 11, 2011
I'm very pleased to welcome Elke Phelps as a new contributor to this blog. Elke needs little introduction to most long-time readers, as she's been a pillar of the E-Business Suite sysadmin community for years. What's special about this announcement is that Elke is joining this blog's panel of guest authors as a member of my Product Management team in the Oracle E-Business Suite Applications Technology Group. I am thrilled to have her as part of my team and look forward to her contributions to this blog.
Here's a short bio:
