Oracle ACE Spotlight Tim TowTim Tow
Tim Tow is the Founder and President of Applied OLAP and the visionary for the innovative Dodeca product. He has been working exclusively with Oracle Essbase since 1995 specializing in the Essbase Java API. Tim was the first Oracle ACE and the first Oracle ACE Director in the Hyperion space and assisted Oracle to build the initial Oracle ACE team in that community. Tim is an award-winning speaker who had the highest-rated, and the third highest-rated, presentations at the recent Kscope15 conference which earned him the prestigious Kscope15 Best Speaker award. He also blogs on Essbase topics, leads the development team that develops, and supports free of charge, the popular OlapUnderground Essbase utilities. Tim is serving his third term on the ODTUG Board of Directors and is currently the Treasurer of ODTUG.
Tim has some exciting hobbies! He owns and flies a 1970 Cessna 210K for both business and pleasure. He enjoys cycling (he even commutes by bike) and outdoor rock climbing. He also obsesses over Michigan football and enjoys reading the blogs daily to stay informed!
He has been married to his wife, Darlene Tow, for nearly 25 years, but he says that it seems like only a year or two. He has a ‘his, hers, and ours’ family. He has a daughter, Whitney, a step-son, Billy, and he and Darlene have a son, named Logan. They also have a 2 year old granddaughter.

Tim will be at Oracle Open World, so please introduce yourself and say “hello” if you see him!
