My name is Francois Raymond Février, but I go by Ray Février.
I am a solution-oriented and result-driven professional with close to 20 years of experience in the areas of Business Intelligence (BI), Enterprise Performance Management (EPM), Big Data Analytics and Cloud integrations. To help companies ease their Cloud adoption, I have worked with Oracle development team to create hybrid collaterals that can bridge the gap between on-premise and Cloud implementations.
As a consultant, I have streamlined systems and improved operational processes for several Fortune 500 companies within the financial, energy, public, retail services, and manufacturing sectors. While doing so, I have acquired an extensive knowledge in the implementation of Data Integration for Business Analytics solutions leveraging Oracle/Hyperion toolset.
My foray into data integration started with Hyperion Application Link (HAL), then Informatica, Oracle Data Integrator (ODI), Data Relationship Management (DRM), Financial Data Management (FDM), Financial Data Management Enterprise Edition (FDMEE) and now Big Data technologies.
Prior to this, I served as Director of Operational Risk Management Reporting & Production Support at Morgan Stanley.
On a personal note, I am a fun loving, NY Yankees adoring, father and husband. I enjoy spending time with friends and family while drinking a nice glass of Malbec or a bottle of Monk beer (preferably a Chimay). My wife and I are both Open Water divers and whenever the opportunity presents itself, we like to go for a dive.
