As Footy Season Approaches, Rubicon Red Busy Kicking Goals

Building on its position as a recognized global leader in Oracle Middleware, Rubicon Red today re-affirms its commitment to helping customers on their digital transformation journey with a number of key announcements this week including a major Customer Go-Live, Oracle BPM 12c Specialization and Oracle Summit Sponsorship.

Customer Go-Live

Rubicon Red are thrilled to announce a major go-live at a Tier 1 Financial Institution in Australia that transforms the lending fulfillment process. With 2000-5000 bankers and fulfilment staff interacting with the new system every day the organization anticipates significant cost savings and improved customer service, looking to cut loan approval times for business banking customers. The new system means business banking customers can potentially get the green light on their loan approvals up to 3 times faster.

Rubicon Red was a key design and development partner on this significant transformation project that optimizes the lending process, a core part of the business. The system was implemented using Oracle Business Process Management Suite 12c integrating with a number of key business systems using Oracle SOA Suite 12c running on Oracle Exalogic and Oracle Exadata. Rubicon Red successfully upgraded the system from Oracle BPM 11g to Oracle BPM 12c, and leveraged Rubicon Red FusionCloud to streamline dev/test in the cloud. The phased go-live delivered a smooth transition to the new system and the project has already been widely recognized as a success, internally.

Oracle BPM 12c Specialization

Coincident with the customer go-live this week, Rubicon Red are excited to announce it has achieved a new Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) Specialization for Oracle Business Process Management (BPM) Suite 12c. This extends Rubicon Red’s comprehensive set of OPN Specializations now, numbering six, including Oracle SOA Suite 12c, Oracle WebLogic Server 12c, Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, Oracle Linux 6, Oracle VM 3.

Achieving OPN Specialization for Oracle BPM Suite 12c is an important aspect of the high quality project delivery capability offered by Rubicon Red. Further, Rubicon Red has also invested heavily in Oracle Process Cloud Service, Oracle’s cloud-based BPM offering. Rubicon Red has successfully adopted Oracle Process Cloud Service for it’s own internal go-to-market business processes, a recent case study is available here.

As an OPN Specialized partner, Rubicon Red has a strong track record, delivering innovative and outstanding customer solutions.

“As Oracle BPM and SOA Specialists, maintaining our staff expertise and ongoing enablement has always been important for Rubicon Red and we recognize the added value of Specialization for us and our customers. With our focus now on helping our customer’s with their digital transformation and transition to the Cloud, we are also investing heavily in building and maintaining our expertise in Oracle Cloud. We are excited by the new capabilities we are seeing emerge so rapidly in Oracle Process Cloud Service, Oracle Integration Cloud Service and Oracle SOA Cloud Service and what this means for our customers and our ability to support them on their transition to the cloud”, said John Deeb, CEO, Rubicon Red.

Summit Sponsorship

With ongoing focus on digital transformation and helping customers on their journey to the cloud, Rubicon Red is pleased to announce sponsorship of the upcoming Oracle Process, Integration & API Cloud Summit in Melbourne, March 15-16, 2017. This not to be missed Oracle event will be filled with the latest product announcements and roadmaps, customer experience sessions and plenty of networking opportunities. The agenda will feature entertaining and insightful speakers from Oracle Headquarters including Vikas Anand, Vice President, Product Management and Jakub Nesetril, Founder CEO, Apiary.io. Vikas will be joined by guest speaker, Matt Wright, CTO, Rubicon Red.

If you would like to join us at the Oracle Process, Integration and API Cloud Summit, please contact Steve Tindall (Oracle Australia Pty Ltd) or Kathryn Lustenberger (Oracle Corporation).

“We are excited to have our Platinum partner, Rubicon Red, sponsoring our Cloud Summit for this inaugural event in Australia. We love coming to Australia - customers here are ahead of the curve in terms of cloud understanding and the value it presents. With the recent announcement of the Oracle Data Center expansion in Sydney, we envisage this will be a very engaging and dynamic couple of days as we discuss real world use-cases with our customers. We would like to acknowledge the important role our partners play in helping these customers transition to the cloud. Rubicon Red’s recent BPM 12c Specialization, coupled with their recent Oracle Process Cloud Service implementation and on-going investment in the new cloud services, positions them perfectly to help our customers on their journey to the Oracle Cloud,” said Vikas Anand, Vice President, Product Management, Oracle Corporation.

“Apiary has pioneered the field of API Design and is leading the market in products that enable API-First workflows. I'm very excited about the world of opportunities opening up before us with the combined products of Apiary and Oracle API Platform and looking forward to discuss the current products offering and product vision,” said Jakub Nesetril, Founder CEO, apiary.io.

Rubicon Red Achieves Five New Oracle PartnerNetwork Specializations

Rubicon Red, a recognized global leader and multi-award winner in Oracle Fusion Middleware and a Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced it has achieved five new OPN Specializations including Oracle SOA Suite 12c, Oracle WebLogic Server 12c, Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, Oracle Linux 6, Oracle VM 3.

Many Oracle customers have established internal private PaaS solutions, as they commence their journey to the cloud.

To achieve OPN Specialized status, partners must meet a stringent set of product-specific competency and business requirements that are based on the needs and priorities of the customer and partner community. By achieving a Specialized distinction, Rubicon Red has been recognized by Oracle and its customers for its expertise in delivering services specifically around Oracle SOA Suite 12c, Oracle WebLogic Server 12c, Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, Oracle Linux and Oracle VM, through competency development, business results and proven success.

“As Oracle SOA Suite and BPM Specialists, maintaining our staff expertise and ongoing enablement is paramount for Rubicon Red. We recognize the value of Specialization and continue to invest heavily in building and maintaining our Oracle expertise”, said John Deeb, CEO, Rubicon Red.

“We are very proud of our Platinum partner, Rubicon Red, in achieving Specialization in Oracle SOA Suite 12c. As a global partner and with the rapid adoption rate of Oracle SOA Suite12c, we would like to acknowledge the important role our partners play in helping clients upgrade to Oracle SOA Suite 12c, and take advantage of the new Oracle SOA Suite 12c capabilities including API Management, Managed File Transfer and of course the new Cloud Adapters”, said Vikas Anand, Senior Director, Product Management, Oracle.

Specialization can provide customers with greater confidence that a partner is qualified in the defined product or industry area and able to assist them to develop, architect and implement specific solutions.

As an OPN Specialized partner, Rubicon Red has a track record, delivering innovative and outstanding customer solutions. Many of Rubicon Red’s projects have been lauded in recent years – Rubicon Red customers have been recognized as winners of Oracle Excellence Awards (Oracle Fusion Middleware Innovation Awards) in 2010, 2011, 2014 (3x winners) and 2015 (3x finalists).
