What is Occamonics?

Occamonics is the application of the principal of Occam’s Razor to modern-day software design. In short, we believe that the simplest solution to a problem is usually the best. Throughout our practice we deliver on this philosophy by developing efficient solutions that eliminate complexity and which are simple and intuitive to use.

Oracle cloud applications are among the most advanced and capable in the industry and can help revolutionise your enterprise operations. We specialise in making the power of these applications easily available to the right people in your organisation at the right time.

Utilising the AI-powered Oracle Digital Assistant we can surface time-specific features such as benefits selection, performance reviews and expense-filing prompts to the people that need it, at the time that they need it.

Furthermore, even infrequent features can be easily accessed by simply asking about them in natural language. No more need to learn complex menu navigation or to rely on internal helpdesk teams to carry out those those less-common HR tasks. A true self-service solution available to all your employees, anywhere, at any time.

Martin’s drive to produce high-quality software started when he led a project to develop a new system for oil exploration which fired dynamite from the keyboard – exhilarating, but not something you can afford to get wrong!  His technical specialism – then and ever since – has always been the User Experience.  

Martin has applied and honed his expertise in this area through working with a wide range of organizations around the globe in domains as diverse as complex modelling, analytics and information security.

Martin now uses his extensive UX experience and expertise to lead conversational design initiatives for our clients .

Martin Jarvis


Martin has worked in the IT industry for over 30 years, most of which working for Oracle. He has taken on numerous roles ranging from consultancy, solution architect, pre-sales and product management, always applying the latest technologies to solve business problems.

He is a certified Enterprise Architect and has practiced all aspects of app development from concept to design, through to implementation.

Before joining the Occamonics team, he spent 5 years as Director of Product Management for Oracle Digital Assistant. He helped to launch the cloud platform service and drove the go-to-market.  During that time, he helped many customers get started with their Conversational AI strategy and create their first chatbot. He was a key driver behind Oracle’s Conversation Design Experience (CDX) methodology and the popular design-thinking workshops. He’s just as comfortable discussing the business and commercial opportunities from conversational AI as he is the solution architecture.

Neville Varnham


Neville has nearly 40 years’ experience in IT, specialising in ERP technical architecture for over 20 years, in both pre- and post-sales consulting roles, including Project Management and Team Leadership.

As part of the HCM Solution Consulting team at Oracle, Neville engaged with customers and prospective customers to understand and answer their questions about the technology side of the HCM Cloud application. Those questions could cover topics such as hosting practices and policies, application security, data integration and SaaS application extensibility (including how SaaS applications can be extended by integration with PaaS solutions).  

Neville particularly enjoyed working with the Oracle Digital Assistant and the Oracle-delivered HCM Skills demonstrating how organisations could provide a conversational employee experience to their workforce. He is very happy to be working with Oracle Digital Assistant again.
