Melli Annamalai, Senior Principal Product Manager
I am a product manager at Oracle, in the database organization. Over the years I have developed extensive experience in unstructured and semi-structured data management. My current focus areas are Graphs, Apache Kafka, and Big Data. I enjoy working with customers and helping them use our technology to solve their problems, from small scale problems to those that have tremendous impact in their organization and beyond. Along with my colleagues I am on a mission to make our products as easy to use as possible.
I believe in equitable access to education for all, and I spend most of my spare time volunteering in activities towards that goal.
