Blogoversary : One Year Journey of becomeAppsDBA Blog

436,268 Views, 171,067 hits, 1374 Comments, 744 email subscribers and 157 posts to finish one year Journey of this blog.
One Year ago on 30 July 2006, I posted first topic on this blog with a Vision to share my experience as an Oracle Applications DBA and to help other budding DBA’s/administrator who want to explore Oracle Applications (E-Business Suite, Application Server, Collaboration Suite and Oracle Identity Management).

On this occasion I want to thank few people without whom this blog would not have been such a success.
Steven Chan whose post inspired me to start this blog (I admire his dedication for Apps Community), Harmeet Kocchar (Senior Manager @ Oracle, my mentor) who gave me direction to learn Apps, Khushi (My Wife) for her support and patience, Anil Passi (Famous blogger among Apps Techno Functional consultant) for his friendly advice and innovative ideas, Fadi Hasweh for nominating me for Oracle ACE, Subba Rao, Ramnik and other members answering budding apps dba’s queries at forum and finally to my readers for making this blog such a Success.
