2007 - Kashif Manzoor

Kashif’s desire to provide infrastructure, training, and efficiency to businesses in emerging economies has led him all over Southeast Asia and the Middle East, including his native Pakistan.  Kashif thrives on opportunities to mentor and teach, and to make an impact on the job professionally and personally, so local employees have the training and networks necessary to build successful careers within and outside of their current companies.

As a PeopleSoft Campus Solutions Domain Lead covering Asia Pacific, Kashif travels regularly to clients to implement, customize, and provide training on Oracle’s Higher Education software solutions.  When he is not implementing software at leading universities across Asia, Kashif is contributing to develop a more sustainable long-term business and sales strategy for Oracle Consulting in the region.  He aims to reduce costs, offer more competitive pricing, build new partnerships, and within each of Oracle’s country offices, develop a new sense of culture and community.

Kashif writes regularly and plans to start teaching soon, with the eventual goal of writing a book on his experience working in IT product development and consulting.  In addition to the recognition and prestige the Siebel Scholarship afforded him, Kashif says the award afforded him the option not to work to support his family while he was completing his Master’s degree – and the time he needed to publish his research at one of the leading computer science conferences.
