Scott Haaland has over 20 years experience in the Software Development and IT industry. He started working in 1992 for Hewlett Packard, and then for the spinoff company from HP called Agilent Technologies. After branching out on his own with two different businesses, including a Software Consulting business, he also picked up many business management skills along the way as well. Most recently, Scott has joined Oracle in 2012 as a Principal Product Manager for the SOA Suite team, with a special emphasis on Oracle B2B. While working for Hewlett Packard as a Developer for their EDI Services team, Scott gained expertise in many different B2B standards, such as EDI X.12, TRADACOMMS, EDIFACT, and EIAJ. With the advent of Message Oriented Middleware and then the transition into Service Oriented Architecture, Scott continued to gain important Integration Architecture skills while at Agilent Technologies, where he helped to develop a Canonical model based on the OAGIS 8.0 specification for internal application to application integration using TIBCO technologies. Scott learned SOA Suite while providing consulting services, and helped his clients with a transition to a Service Oriented Architecture approach for integration using Oracle SOA Suite 11g. As a Product Manager for Oracle SOA Suite, his expertise in EDI, A2A, SOA, and B2B have proven invaluable towards the writing of this book. Scott enjoys spending time with his family, working on home improvement projects, working on cars, and volunteering at his church and in his community.
