This (for this site) is a strange post…
I am looking for a consultancy job. Nothing new here, but only a strange way to make this visible to the outside world.
This month is the end of my successful 3 year project for the dutch UWV as member of the project team, that converted almost all historical Dutch UVI Historical Unemployed Benefit data to a, on XMLDB functionality based, Oracle database.
During that time, because the technology used was based on Oracle XMLDB functionality, I became highly experienced with the XMLDB DBA / architecture problems and solutions of this new technology. I think, a great asset besides my being a DBA for almost 15 years. I guess, also based on this, my profile on the Oracle OTN XMLDB forum and probably also because of the AMIS Company profile, with great people like, among others Lucas, Sjoerd, Gerwin, etc.; We / AMIS were also allowed to enter the Oracle 11g Beta test program.
Knowledge is great, but even nicer is the opportunity to help people with their Oracle XMLDB challenges…and XMLDB challenges are hard to find…
Helping people on the XMLDB OTN forum is great but that doesn’t account for real XMLDB production problems. So if you need help and are looking for XMLDB DBA / architecture specialist, take me also into account and call or mail, for instance Emile Voogt (emile[dot]voogt[at]amis[dot]nl), one of my AMIS sales colleagues.
If you want to get in contact with me directly, regarding AMIS consultancy XMLDB opportunity job use marco[dot]gralike[at]amis[dot]nl, see my presentation about XMLDB on this years UKOUG or read up on XMLDB here.
So, all in all, I hope you forgive me, that this time, this post is not a technical one…
Hope to see you at UKOUG.
