I am part of the Oracle Customer Success Team, guiding each customer towards a long-term and sustainable utilization of Oracle Cloud services. I started working with the Oracle Database since 9i firstly as a developer, learning Oracle Forms and Reports on the way. Later I changed the role to being a DBA for most of my career managing 9i, 10g, 11g, and 12c databases. Taking the step to a presales position or later a post-sales position got me closer to the Oracle Cloud and the database family services there. I am one of the first Autonomous Database Certified Experts in Romania.
