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.
