A Note from Your Community Lead
EPM Product Management Corner
By Mark Rinaldi, Oracle Corporation
Henry worked for ConocoPhillips for 33 years and as a consultant for two years (one with interRel and one as an independent) using Essbase. In January 2019, he began his current career as a grandfather (moving to be closer to the two older grandsons). In retirement, Henry spends most of his time traveling with his wife, playing bridge, volunteering as a Scout leader, and playing with his grandkids. Before you ask—yes, as everyone says, he is in fact busier now that he's retired than he was while working.

The targeted date for this change is October 1, 2019. A Customer Connect session is scheduled on September 25 to address any questions you may have.
