Peter Doolan leads the pre-sales engineering teams for Oracle's Public Sector North America organization. With over twenty years of I.T. leadership with Oracle, Peter brings a unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities for spatial data within the enterprise. A keen advocate for spatial data from an early stage in his career Peter has continued to champion the importance of spatial data as a first class citizen within the modern I.T. enterprise. With location based data generated via the mass use of social networks, smart meters and sensors the imperative to manage spatial data as a key enterprise data asset has never been more important.
