He co-founded First4 Database Partners Inc. with members of the original DBCORP team.

He has presented at numerous national, international and local database venues including CIPS, Oracle World and the Independent Oracle Users Group. He is also a former president of COUG.


A while back Steve presented on deploying multiple versions of the Oracle Client software stack onto 4000+ desktops in a corporate environment. This presentation will be a brief update on this project but also include a discussion around the latest twist on this deployment – Windows 7 desktop and Windows 2008 server.

Windows 7 and Windows 2008 propose some unique challenges around compatibility and the User Access Control security layer. Experiences with addressing these challenges at the various client sites will be shared.

As in the previous presentation, Oracle 7, 8i, 9iR2, 10gR2, 11gR2 and 11gR2 will be discussed.
