Vice President, Business Development, National Security Group
Rob Walker joined Oracle’s National Security Group management team in May 2008 through its acquisition of BEA Systems. His role at Oracle is to develop strategies to help customers and partners accelerate their transition to net-centric solutions using key enterprise technologies.
Rob joined BEA’s management team in May of 2004 to serve as a key influencer of strategies for the company’s Public Sector business. His role was to coordinate and communicate across the various public sector accounts to leverage the base of acceptance of BEA’s comprehensive service oriented architecture solutions throughout government organizations and enterprises. He was instrumental in articulating the value of BEA technology for transitioning mission critical capabilities to a service oriented architecture approach with the US government customer and its global partners.
Rob came to BEA from the government as a major program manager at the Defense Information Systems Agency where he managed the development of an SOA strategy around a program called Net-Centric Enterprise Services (NCES). While at DISA he also managed the software production of the Common Operating Environment (COE) which was foundational software for the fielding of the Global Command and Control Systems (GCCS) common operational picture (COP). As the Program Manager for NCES he led a team to define an approach for transforming DoD computing infrastructure to a service oriented architecture further enabling the DoD’s capabilities-based net-centric vision.
