FAREWELL and THANK YOU

This month, we bid a fond farewell and send best wishes for a long and enjoyable retirement to Larry Borgione, Oracle Product Strategy Manager. Larry has worked closely with the AA community for many years, always listened to what our members had to say, and worked hard to make sure that our community’s concerns were not overlooked in development plans. Larry, you will be missed.

Have you figured out a puzzle or streamlined a process? Did you discover just what the heck that little box actually does when you click it? Did you implement something for the very first time? Did you manage to figure out what that section of PeopleBooks really meant?

Don’t hide there alone in the dark. Forget modesty! Share your genius with the rest of us! We are your people, and we understand and appreciate these small triumphs.
