Gianni Ceresa is an OAC/OBIEE enthusiast more widely interested in BA/DW/EPM solutions with a special focus on Oracle products and solutions. Currently working for DATAlysis, his own consulting company in Switzerland, he was a Principal Consultant at Rittman Mead for more than three years, covering positions such as architect, analyst, team lead and developer, bridging together the business and the technical side of the BI world. Gianni previously has had four years of experience in EPM/BI with Hyperion/Oracle products for consultancy companies and before that explored all the possible aspects of web development during five years in multiple roles from Developer to CTO through Project Manager. His other activities include training delivery, R&D and supporting the Oracle community on the ODC forums.
To complete a bit that short intro I can say I have the chance to speak at some great conferences like Kscope, OUGN Spring conference, DOAG, UKOUG Techfest and many more. I’m probably not a “natural” speaker, language also doesn’t help. But I must admit I enjoy it and so I will try my best to continue, to keep sending abstracts to few events every year.
I also spend time (a lot, maybe too much?) on the ODC (ex OTN) forums, mainly the Business Intelligence and related spaces. This forum is really a nice place where to post questions and have the community providing hints.
At end 2017 I had the pleasure to be chosen to receive the Oracle ACE award. In July 2019 I have been nominated as Oracle ACE Director. I’m extremely proud for this achievement, I started my career by reading and following few Oracle ACED and learning from them. It also means that my efforts to give back to the community are paying.
Finally, on a more “personal” note, I’m also a kind of technology geek (probably just geek is more correct) and spend time reading things and also have few Raspberry Pi and Arduino around which I use for the most random needs (always fun to program things from time to time).
