Who is Ken Truesdale?

I'm an independent consultant specializing in the more complex aspects of Oracle Configurator, including Configurator Extensions (AKA Functional Companions) and advanced modeling. Having worked with the Configurator product since its inception, I have the most extensive expertise you'll find outside of the Oracle Corporation.

As you may or may not know, the Oracle Configurator started off in 1995 as little more than a toolkit called SellingPoint created by a company called Concentra (no relation to the current Concentra, a healthcare company). I'm proud to say that I worked for Concentra during the time the product was being developed and was one of the first to implement SellingPoint for a customer. Although the product's early days were challenging, it gave me a thorough understanding of how the product works internally; this knowledge is still relevant and useful today.

Oracle acquired Concentra in 1999. I remained with Oracle for 4 years after the acquisition before becoming an independent consultant. The role of independent consultant provides me a better opportunity to do what I like to do - write Configurator Extensions / Functional Companions and build config models.
