My name is Simo Vilmunen and I’ve been working in IT industry around 20 years. Currently I work for Finnish based manufacturing company Uponor as a technical architect for Oracle systems (Oracle Cloud Infrastructure & on-premise) and for Amazon Web Services.

I started my career working mostly with Oracle databases but throughout the years I’ve been involved with number of different Oracle related products like e-Business Suite, Oracle Business Intelligence, Hyperion and also Oracle Exadata and Oracle VM.

Lately my focus has been trying to change approach how we work with Oracle related applications by standards and automation. This has also required a culture change with our organization as I feel lot of companies involved with Oracle products are still lagging behind on modern ways of working.

In addition to this I’ve been looking Internet of Things solutions, mainly AWS IoT core and serverless setups. One area where there are endless possibilities for companies!

I really enjoy working with cloud infrastructure and infrastructure as code, it gives you excellent possibilities to modernize your legacy applications from bottom up if there aren’t other easy ways to do it.

So plenty of stuff to work on. Hope you enjoy reading and get something out from this blog! If you have any questions about the newsletter or Oracle Cloud Infrastructure queries in general send me an email at simo (at) thatfinnishguy (dot) blog. I’m open for discussion always!

As of July 2019 I’m also recognized as Oracle ACE.
