Andy launched his IT career in the late 1990s at an Oracle-centric company based in Dallas called Database Consultants (later renamed ThinkSpark). This provided the baseline for Andy’s technical pursuits, working with Solaris, Linux, Windows and various networking technologies.
After leaving ThinkSpark in 2004 he consulted for a few years, then in 2006 rejoined Database Consultants’ Founder, Kerry Osborne, at Accenture Enkitec Group. Since then he’s become an expert consultant in the Oracle technology stack, including Oracle Exadata, Oracle Database Appliance, RAC, Oracle Application Server (OHS and WebLogic), DataGuard, and Oracle Application Server products such as Oracle Enterprise Manager. He’s also specialized in ASM, Linux and Solaris. Colvin is a Certified Associate in Oracle Enterprise Linux Administrator.
