Leading Oracle Platinum Partner, Explorer, were awarded ‘Database Partner of the year – Gold’ and ‘Systems Partner of the year – Gold’ by the Oracle community at the annual UKOUG Partner Awards, held at The Honourable Artillery Company, London on Thursday 4th October 2018. This marks another significant point in Explorer’s sustained growth as an Oracle specialist.
“These awards are the latest in a long line of recognition from the UKOUG that highlights our ability on all fronts of Oracle technology combined with our services. Thank you to all our staff for their commitment and loyalty towards our customers and, of course, to everyone who voted for us. Winning Gold for the Database award four years in a row is amazing,” Jon Lingard, Sales Director, stated following the event.
Jon continued; “The technology landscape is ever evolving and Oracle needs Partners like Explorer that can solve complex business problems and deliver great value for our mutual customers. Our heritage and strong reputation as an Oracle-only Database and Infrastructure specialist is again highlighted by these awards and this solid foundation will continue to serve our customers well as we continue to evolve and grow. Hybrid and Multi-Cloud adoption is increasing and proving to be the strategic direction many of our customers are taking compared to tactical and siloed cloud deployments; blending traditional Infrastructure or Engineered Systems with Oracle Cloud for best of breed Enterprise Architecture. Our customers can be confident that they are being supported by a specialist that is recognised by the Oracle user group community and vendor alike.”
Simon Greenwood, Development Services Director said; “As the #1 Application Express (APEX) development consultancy in the UK it’s endearing that so many of our customers have voted for us on the back of the development projects and infrastructure implementations we have delivered for them. We’ve seen increasing uptake of APEX in the Oracle Cloud and its opening up opportunities for our customers in emerging and competitive markets alike by providing them with a low cost and agile Application, Database and Infrastructure stack”.
Simon continued, “The Oracle User Group is such a strong community for sharing knowledge and experiences with individuals and businesses across the UK. I would encourage anyone who is not yet a member to contact the UKOUG to sign up and actively participate”.
