Introducing Keith M. Swartz, Guest Author
By Steven Chan (Oracle Development) on Jul 13, 2006
[Editor Update May 21, 2008: Keith has moved on to another team within Oracle and, sadly, is no longer an active contributor to this blog. Feel free to direct any questions about his posted articles directly to Steven Chan, instead.]
I'm very pleased to welcome Keith M. Swartz as a new contributor to this blog. He's a colleague in my team and a key member of the core group that does the tough R&D work of integrating Oracle components with the E-Business Suite technology stack. For example, Keith has spent a substantial portion of the last few years involved with the work that culminated in Release 12's upgrade to Oracle Application Server 10g.
Here's a short bio:
Keith has been with Oracle since 1993, and has spent nearly the entire time in the bowels of the E-Business products: first as a support analyst for the AOL and AutoInstall products, then later, as product manager for AutoInstall. He was also the founder of the Systems Assurance Group for candidate release testing, and one of the original designers of the Certify application that has since become a staple of Oracle's MetaLink offerings.
As is customary for anyone who writes in this blog, Keith is also a remote worker, taking root in Seattle, Washington, and only occasionally travelling to Redwood Shores for brief respites from the rain.
