Rubicon Red Invests in Oracle Process Cloud Service and Oracle SOA Cloud Service

Rubicon Red, a recognized global leader in Oracle Fusion Middleware and a Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced it has subscribed to Oracle Process Cloud Service and Oracle SOA Cloud Service.

Oracle Cloud Platform to Rapidly Enable Key Go-To-Market Processes

Rubicon Red, a recognized global leader in Oracle Fusion Middleware and a Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced it has subscribed to Oracle Process Cloud Service and Oracle SOA Cloud Service.

A global middleware partner, Rubicon Red identified an opportunity to invest in Oracle Process Cloud Service (PCS) and Oracle SOA Cloud Service (SOACS) to implement key internal go-to-market processes that would help the company rapidly scale, delivering solutions and services to the market faster, and at less cost than alternative approaches.

Rubicon Red uses PCS to automate a number of key go-to market processes, including the process of requesting, approving and provisioning a cloud based trial environment to test drive Rubicon Red’s solution accelerators for Oracle Middleware. In the future, it is planned to leverage Integration Cloud Service (ICS) to integrate PCS with external SaaS-based applications.

This represents a transformation for Rubicon Red from an Oracle Partner to also being an Oracle Customer. This change of status highlights another benefit of Oracle Cloud: in that the cost of entry is significantly lower, allowing medium size enterprises such as Rubicon Red, to more readily take advantage of enterprise software.

“We have a great opportunity to better meet the needs of our clients by understanding the “customer perspective”, which we get directly from using Oracle Process Cloud Service ourselves”, said John Deeb, Rubicon Red, CEO.

With a focus on helping clients on their journey to the cloud, the Oracle Cloud Platform is a key enabler for Rubicon Red to deliver enterprise class integration and BPM solutions on the cloud.

“Research shows moving development to the cloud can initially reduce development time by an order of 11 to 20 percent. Organizations that fully embrace the cloud for Dev and Test are experiencing more than 30 percent time savings upon maturing their DevOps capabilities[i]. SOACS is perfect for this. Thus another reason for our investment is to provide even closer integration between our Oracle Middleware DevOps solution, MyST, and SOACS, to provide the ability for our clients to develop in SOACS and then deploy on-premise for Pre-Prod and Prod”, said Matt Wright, Rubicon Red, Chief Technology Officer.

With ready access to Oracle Process Cloud Service and Oracle SOA Cloud Service, Rubicon Red is building hands-on expertise and also plans to leverage these new environments to build proof of concepts and validate client requirements, helping clients get started on their journey to the cloud.

“We are excited to see our local partner, Rubicon Red, investing in the Oracle Cloud Platform, specifically Oracle Process Cloud Service and Oracle SOA Cloud Service to kick-start their own internal business processes. With our new PaaS offerings, customers can achieve faster time to value at a much lower cost, making our PaaS offerings a great option for medium-sized organizations. Further, as a global Middleware partner, adding Oracle PaaS capabilities to their service offerings, will enable Rubicon Red to be a go-to partner locally, as our clients embark on their journey to the cloud with Oracle,” said Franco Ucci, Senior Director, Oracle Corporation Australia Pty Limited.
