2018 Momentum Building with Oracle PaaS and IaaS

19 April, 2018 – Rubicon Red, a recognized global leader in Oracle Cloud Platform and a Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced momentum is building in it’s Oracle PaaS and IaaS practice with growing customer demand, and three new Oracle Partner Network (OPN) Specializations.

Since the launch of it’s Oracle PaaS and IaaS practice six months ago, Rubicon Red is thrilled to have recently delivered a number of successful go-lives with Oracle PaaS and Oracle middleware, with some exciting new projects on the horizon.

“We are starting to see real traction in the Australian market place with customers looking to modernize their existing applications footprint by quickly moving to the cloud, but in parallel, looking to invest in specific cloud native projects, where they can deliver fast ROI and achieve real differentiation,” said John Deeb, CEO, Rubicon Red.

Deeb went on to highlight opportunities around some of the more recent Cloud offerings from Oracle. “Emerging technologies are changing the way we interact with application functionality and data. Specifically, chatbots are proving to be a very tangible solution for our customers - delivering value quickly, by solving real problems easily and applying consistency and scale in customer experience.”

Having recently delivered a successful Oracle Intelligent Bots project, part of Oracle Cloud Platform, for a higher education institution to address student ATAR enquiries, Rubicon Red is currently fielding requests for chatbot solutions across many industries including higher education, public sector and service delivery.

Other recent Rubicon Red go-lives include People’s Choice Credit Union with a new Oracle-based integration platform to support the New Payments Platform; Ruralco upgraded their enterprise Oracle integration platform from 11g to 12c and migrated to the cloud; Australian Red Cross Blood Service also upgraded their enterprise Oracle integration environment to 12c; US customer, DirecTV, rolled out Rubicon Red MyST to deliver DevOps capability across their enterprise Oracle integration platforms, and in Europe, the Dutch Government also implemented Rubicon Red MyST for DevOps provisioning and continuous integration.

“We are delighted with the work Rubicon Red have delivered for our Oracle SOA 11g to 12c migration to the cloud. As part of ongoing managed services we have implemented DevOps using Rubicon Red MyST for provisioning and continuous delivery. Our migration to 12c on the cloud is the first step in our cloud journey and we are looking forward to working with Rubicon Red on our future Oracle cloud projects.” said Stuart Laird, Head of Applications, Ruralco.

Rubicon Red has a number of interesting projects on the horizon including an application modernization project for an Australian winemaker looking to move their enterprise integration platform to Oracle Cloud.

What continues to emerge as Rubicon Red helps customers on their journey to Oracle Cloud is the importance of having a thriving community of successful customers – successful projects breeds ongoing success for customers, vendors and partners alike. “We see three key elements to supporting a thriving community around Oracle Cloud Platform – first is to build our own knowledge, second, to share our wisdom – sharing what we have learned in terms of best practices and proven approaches with the broader community and thirdly to promote the success of our customers as they rollout successful projects that are having such a positive impact on their own organizations. As Oracle Cloud Platform specialists, continual learning and ongoing investment in the latest product knowledge is critical for all of our consultants to stay abreast of the latest technologies and approaches”, concluded Deeb.

A prime example of the ongoing investment Rubicon Red makes towards continuous learning and education is the latest round of OPN Specializations it has achieved. Rubicon Red are very proud to announce it has recently achieved three new OPN Specializations for Oracle Mobile Cloud, Oracle Infrastructure as a Service and Oracle Management Cloud. These latest accreditations extend Rubicon Red’s comprehensive set of OPN Specializations, now numbering nine in total, including Oracle SOA Suite 12c, Oracle Business Process Management 12c, Oracle WebLogic Server 12c, Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, Oracle Linux 6 and Oracle VM 3.0.

“The three recent OPN Specializations attained by Rubicon Red, cement their position as a partner of choice for Oracle Cloud Platform in Australia and New Zealand”, said Rob Willis, Regional Managing Director, Oracle Australia and New Zealand. “Our customers all over the world are looking for partners like Rubicon Red to help them modernize their existing applications and in parallel, deliver on the digital innovations that business transformation today demands, using Oracle Cloud”.

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.
