Road to Oracle CloudWorld | IAC's Oracle JourneyThe Big ThemesIAC's use of Oracle Technology: IAC, a conglomerate of diverse companies, employs various Oracle products to streamline transactions, accounting, finance, and reporting, ensuring accuracy and efficiency. It historically used third-party hosting facilities but has migrated everything to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).Innovation and growth: Oracle applications provide tools for intricate revenue and lease accounting rules, negating the need for third-party systems. This approach offers better control, compliance, and cost-effectiveness and promotes innovation and growth.Enhancing Employee and Customer Experiences: All end users, including employees, should be considered customers. Oracle's technology enables smoother experiences by improving backend systems. An example is given of a significant reduction in processing time for a specific report.The Big Quote: “So, with various 606 revenue rules, with various 842 lease accounting rules, the Oracle applications allow us to expand and utilize the functionality that's inherently available in the applications, therefore allowing us not to bolt in any third-party applications, which is hugely beneficial for multiple reasons. One being, you have one less system to manage; two, you have better compliance and controls over the data; [and] three, it's cost-efficient, as well.”Want to be part of the action at Oracle CloudWorld 2023?Get an Oracle pass to join in person.

Join us for another insightful session of our weekly live chat! Don't miss out on the latest updates and engaging discussions in the EOS ecosystem. Be part of our thriving community on Discord: https://discord.gg/eos-network Here's our agenda for this week's chat:
Are you curious about how to rise to the top 10% of your class and become a member of the law review? Or how law school exams differ from undergrad? How to become debt-free as a recent law school graduate? How about how to avoid debt before you even get into law school? Today's guest covers it all. Cindy Zuniga-Sanchez grew up the daughter of immigrants living in a one bedroom apartment in the Bronx with her parents and sisters. She attended undergrad on a full scholarship (including room and board), but by the time she graduated law school — with a partial scholarship, at the top 10% of her class, and as a member of the law review — she had accumulated over $215,000 debt. In our conversation, Cindy shares how she went from over $200,000 in debt to debt-free in 4 years, why she left a $300,000+ salary, along with the prestige and security of a BigLaw associate position, to bet on herself by expanding her own personal finance business. She wrote the book on financial freedom and generational wealth, literally, but started her journey with a simple google search: "how can I get out of debt?". Cindy shares insights from a path spanning from premed to interning for Hilary Clinton and Senator Chuck Schumer to creating her brand, ZeroBasedBudget, which has over 65,000 followers on Instagram and has been featured in national publications including Forbes, Business Insider, and Bloomberg Opinion. She has also been featured in national and local television including Good Morning America, The Rachael Ray Show, and Telemundo. She is incredibly humble and insightful. Whether you're prelaw, a recent law school graduate, or a seasoned attorney, this is not an interview you want to miss.

Mario Gerard: Hello, and welcome to the TPM podcast with your host Mario Gerard. Today, we have a very special guest with us, Rhea Frondozo. She and I have worked together at Oracle cloud infrastructure team OCI. Rhea has been a tech industry for the last 20 years. She's worked at IBM for eight years, Microsoft for fours, EMC square. And then at OCI for six years, she's had a variety of different roles as well. She's been a developer, a program manager, a test manager, engineering manager, a director of TPM, and right now, is working at Salesforce as a senior director of TPMS. Her specialty is to run large scheme programs. Rhea, thank you for joining us today. And why don't you introduce yourself to our audience to our audience? Rhea Frondozo: Thanks Mario. As you mentioned, I have had a 20-year run in the tech industry working for several of the top tech companies in a variety of different roles. But what I found is that I've always been most interested in working on large scale complex programs and products after trying out so many different roles at different companies. What I now know is that my passion tends to be working on projects that aren't so much consumer facing in terms of features or products or services, but more on, so solving enterprise level infrastructure challenges. I find that the problem solving I enjoy most applies to cross-functional technical challenges that typically span multiple products, services, or even processes. Mario Gerard: Fantastic. Rhea and I actually have worked together at OCI. As I mentioned, we've been on the same team I've reported to Rhea where it was so much fun. We've actually solved so many large-scale programs or problems, which turned in programs and I've learned so much from her. So, I think this is going to be a very interesting podcast. So how we have designed today's podcast is the first section. We are going to just go over some very fundamental TPM questions with Rhea. And the second half of the podcast, we're going to go very much into the details of how you've run a large-scale program. So, let's start with the first section, right? So, Rhea, how would you describe the TPM function? Rhea Frondozo: So, the TPM function I have to say is not a very easy one to describe because it typically is something that varies from company to company and organization, to organization, team, to team. It's a newer function I think that has a blended role within many organizations. So, if you can imagine at the base, you have the project management or program management responsibilities, then you apply that to some kind of technical project, program process that needs to be solved for. And so, it also can vary tremendously depending on seniority level. And so, the scale at which you operate can be very small and narrow, more depth focused If you are a depth TPM, or it can be very large and crosscutting across entire organizations or entire companies, if you're looking more at the breadth TPM role. Mario Gerard: And what would you say are the core skills TPM should generally have? Rhea Frondozo: So, at the most basic, you know, skill that I would expect TPMS to have been first and foremost, project management skills. These are just your basic project management skills around being able to define scope, a problem space, understand business impact, being able to identify key stakeholders and goals that you want to solve for as well as, you know, creating schedules and tracking execution. But outside of just your project management basic skills, the expectation would be that you have to have very solid communication skills. The ability to communicate both up down and laterally, whether it's your having conversations with Lee leadership, having conversations with team members, who you are giving direction to, or maybe peers or TPMS that you are trying to get to work on your project, who are maybe peers. Outside of communication Some other soft skills that I think are important are...
Mario Gerard: Hello, and welcome to the TPM podcast with your post Mario Gerard. This is going be a podcast with Rhea. Rhea and I worked together at OCI running large scale programs. We've split this into a three-part series, and we're primarily focusing on how we run large scale programs at tech organizations. So, stay tuned and listen in and definitely check out all the three parts to the series. And so, this is Rhea's co expertise, and this is what I've been doing as well for the last four years at the Oracle cloud infrastructure team. It's definitely a very unique type of a role, unique type of people who get involved in running large scale programs. And generally, there aren't many large-scale programs which are run within organizations, right? So, I'm going to ask Rhea some questions and I'll probably add to that as well. So, the first primary question for our listeners Rhea, what is a large-scale program? How do you define a large-scale program? Rhea Frondozo: So typically, I'd say that a large-scale program is a program that spans multiple organizations. So, you're looking at a program that maybe ranges from hundreds to thousands of developers or engineers, all working towards a very complex goal. Mario Gerard: Yeah. I just feel that that needs to kind of sink in, right? So, the programs they've run, like we've had to move like 200 teams, which takes two years. If you calculate the manpower that's required to do some of these initiatives. There are literally thousands or tens of thousands of manners of work. And so that's like so complex. Do you think about it? Rhea Frondozo: Yeah, I would say when you frame it that way, and you think about the complexity that comes with a large program, it may be the case that as a TPM, you're interacting with a core set of stakeholders. Maybe it's like 20 to 30 core stakeholders, but the multiplier under that for how many people that they are working with, how much direction that they are giving to an entire organization, it can be pretty mind blowing to know that you're trying to move a ship that has so many people all trying to row in the same direction. It's pretty incredible. Once you see the amount of effort that that takes. Mario Gerard: And this is I think, where we also differentiate depth TPMS versus breadth TPMS, you want to speak of little bit about that? Rhea Frondozo: Yeah. So, you know, as you mentioned, these large-scale programs are often run by a breadth TPM because these are going to be the TPMS who work across multiple organizations. They're going to have maybe pocs that point of context that they interact with across maybe functional different organizations and teams. Whereas a depth TPM, they're going to go deep in a particular organization or team scope of ownership. And so, they're going to maybe work more directly with the engineers on a single team and understand their problem space much more closely. Whereas the breadth TPM is going to rely on functional area owners to be the subject matter experts in that space. But they're the ones pulling these different functions together to solve a much larger, bigger picture problem. Mario Gerard: Yeah. And if you want to read more about the depth versus breadth TPMS, I've written a good blog post about it with my experience working at OCI. So, you should definitely go check that out. So, coming back to the skills required as a TPM, what do you think are the main skills that a TPM needs to have to run this kind of large-scale initiatives? Because I feel like the breadth TPMS definitely have a different type of problem that they're dealing with than a depth TPM, right? Rhea Frondozo: Yes. So, I would say first and foremost, when you're dealing with these large skill programs, a breath TPM absolutely must have excellent communication skills. They must be crisp. They must be clear. They must be concise. If you think about the levels of communication that are required for a breath TPM.
