Rubicon Red wins Oracle Sustainability Innovation Award 2017

October 05, 2017

Rubicon Red, a recognized global leader in Oracle Cloud Platform and a Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced it is honored to be recognized as a winner of the prestigious 2017 Oracle Sustainability Innovation Award for its Oracle Cloud Platform based solutions.

The Oracle Sustainability Innovation award recognizes customers who are committed to making environmental issues a priority across the enterprise and adopting unique ways to reduce costs and improve business efficiencies through innovative green practices using Oracle technology.

Rubicon Red uses Oracle Process Cloud Service to capture and manage requests to trial MyST—a DevOps solution that automates the end-to-end software release and platform configuration process for Oracle Cloud Platform-based solutions. The automated process replaces a previously manual process comprising emails, phone calls, or face-to-face meetings that could span up to four weeks.

Rubicon Red is now able to fulfil a trial request in less than one hour using Oracle Process Cloud Service to rapidly design and automate all aspects of the request process. Further, providing developers with immediate access to cloud-based full lifecycle process management and enterprise-quality tooling has cut Rubicon Red’s time to market by 40 percent.

From a sustainability perspective, Oracle Process Cloud Service allows Rubicon Red to significantly reduce power consumption and thereby energy costs. Oracle Process Cloud Service manages when a TestDrive environment is spun-up, automatically shutting it down during periods of in-activity, and capping usage to a maximum of 16 hours.

Since going live with Oracle Process Cloud Service for the MyST Trial process, Rubicon Red has seen a 90 percent reduction in compute use, whilst increasing the number of trial environments provisioned per week, by a factor of four. This is a real reduction in resource consumption of approximately 97.5 percent.

“By implementing Oracle Process Cloud Service for our MyST TestDrive, we are directly contributing to reduced energy consumption and costs. We are continually investing in ways to reduce our energy consumption and looking to Oracle Cloud Services to support these initiatives,” said Matt Wright, CTO/CFO, Rubicon Red. “We understand that environmental responsibility makes good business sense and our pro-active green practices deliver benefits not only to our bottom line, but also to our local communities and more broadly, the world we live in.”

With a focus on Smart Cities, Rubicon Red’s most recent eco-innovation is a cloud-based solution for Smart Parking, built using Oracle Cloud Platform Services including Oracle API Platform Cloud Service, Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service, Oracle Visual Builder Cloud Service, Oracle Mobile Cloud Service, Oracle Process Cloud Service, Oracle Application Container Cloud Service, and Oracle Integration Cloud Service. The solution is targeted at local councils who want to help people save time finding parking spaces. The solution, currently under development, will help local councils reduce traffic congestion during peak business hours and thereby improve and reduce carbon emissions.

“We are pleased to recognize our Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork, Rubicon Red, as a winner of the 2017 Oracle Sustainability Innovation Award,” said Jon Chorley, Chief Sustainability Officer and Group Vice President, Supply Chain Management Product Strategy & Product Lifecycle Management, Oracle. “Rubicon Red has implemented Oracle Cloud-based solutions in a way that improves its business efficiencies, reduces costs and energy consumption, and supports its on-going eco-transformation.”

Rubicon Red were excited to attend the awards presentation at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco this week, with Jeff Henley, Oracle Executive Vice-Chairman of the Board, and Jon Chorley, Oracle Chief Sustainability Officer.
