Your System – Not Guilty As Charged

Just another weblog

About Joel Schipper


Thank you for checking out this blog.

I am a Master Principal Sales Consultant and Solution Architect at Oracle for Manufacturing, Distribution, and Supply Chain solutions in Life Sciences, Medical Devices and DiagnosticsAgri-Business, Consumer Products (CPG), Industrial manufacturing, and wholesale distribution environments.   The Master Principal role is held by only about 1% of the Sales Consultants at Oracle who:

  • Help customers relate their requirements to Oracle’s software offerings, including an understanding of applications, middleware, database, and (most recently) the acquisition of  Sun Microsystems,
  • Determine the likely value (or return on investment) of Oracle’s products for a customer’s organization,
  • Manage demonstrations of those software products, and
  • Stay in touch with customers through personal visits, workshops, conferences, and user groups to help ensure a high level of on-going satisfaction and connection to Oracle

I have 37 years of experience (since 1973) in applying information management to business processes, from working in corporate information technology to consulting to software sales and implementation.  Most recently I’ve spent 17 years presenting the JD Edwards brand of enterprise software applications to customers and prospects.

My prior work experience helps provide me with a “360 degree view” of the software application world, including large corporate Information Systems development (DuPont, Playtex), consulting in Information Technology and Business Operations (Peat Marwick, Grant Thornton), and global software implementation management (SSA/BPCS).

I have a BS in Mathematics, and an MSIE in Operations Research (both from Syracuse University), and am certified at the Fellow level (CFPIM) by APICS, the Association for Operations Management.

My prior publications and speeches have focused on topics such as “Do You Know What Your Planner Did Today?” and applying JD Edwards to the fabless semiconductor manufacturing sector.

Outside of work, I love downhill skiing, playing standards and easy jazz on the piano, reading books, and especially taking long wooded walks with my wife Laine and our dog Ember.  We live in San Francisco, California, at the opposite coast from my growing up in Maplewood, New Jersey.

    Hi Joel, my colleague said he talked with you at the user group in Portland last week. Its good to hear that you are doing well and still involved at Oracle. Your blog has many references that parallel the experiences I’ve had with software development over the years. I appreciated what you had to say.
