Packt Blog - Enterprise

by Kerry George | Tuesday, October 25, 2011

In October, Packt attended the annual Oracle OpenWorld conference in San Francisco - with this year’s conference being bigger, better and more extravagant than ever.

This year, not only were we attending, but we also had the opportunity to exhibit, with a Packt booth on the conference floor showcasing all our Oracle titles. We also had a plethora of Packt books available for sale in the Oracle bookstore.

Packt Meets...


Packt chats with Jason Williamson, co-author of the new Oracle Information, Integration, Migration and Consolidation book.

Jason is currently an Oracle Client Advisor, serving as a special advisor to Oracle's premier customers in the financial services industry.  He has over 17 years of experience in technology and business execution, from software development, product marketing and managment to entrepreneurial enterprises. 

Prior to joining Oracle, Jason served as founder and CTO for the construction industry's first SaaS/CRM offering.  He led BuildLinks from concept to a multi-million dollar company and forged key financial and business partnerships with Sprint/Nextel and Intuit.  This venture opened the door for him to establish a non-profit dedication to entrepreneurial and technology education in developing nations, which enabled the establishment of multiple self-sustaining companies in Latin America. 

In addition to his entrepreneurial efforts, Jason has also served in key positions within fortune 500 professional service and financial services firms.  And, something you might not have known, he has also served his country in the United States Marine Corps.
