avanttic has just become Oracle’s first partner in Spain to attain the Oracle Application Development Cloud Platform specialization. This is the eighth time avanttic has become the first Spanish company to attain an Oracle specialization.
- Opting for the Cloud
With Oracle Application Development Cloud Platform, our 40th specialization, there are already five that certify our knowledge, experience and satisfaction of our customers in cloud services. This specialization joins Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (we were the first to obtain it worldwide), Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), Oracle Infrastructure as a Service and Oracle Management Cloud.
The Oracle Application Development Cloud Platform Specialization recognizes partners who are proficient in selling, developing and deploying Oracle’s Application Development Cloud Platform-based solutions. This specialization covers the following services: Oracle Java Cloud Service, Oracle Developer Cloud Service, Oracle Application Container Cloud and Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service. Oracle AppDev platform provides a comprehensive DevOps platform for CI/CD, deep diagnostics for Java applications, and streamlined integration with SaaS and on-prem applications.
With this specialization we also became the first partner in Spain to achieve one of the 9 new Oracle specializations oriented to PaaS:
Oracle Application Development Cloud Platform
Oracle Big Data Cloud Platform
Oracle Content and Experience Cloud Platform
Oracle Management Cloud Platform
Oracle Data Management Cloud Platform
Oracle Business Analytics Cloud Platform
Oracle Data Integration Cloud Platform
Oracle Application Integration Cloud Platform
Oracle Security Cloud Platform
In 2016 we had already become the first partner in Spain to be recognised by Oracle within its cloud certification program (Oracle Partner Network Cloud Program). And in February 2018 we launched the website Fly to Oracle Cloud, with a series of packaged services focused on helping companies to easily and safely bring workloads onto the cloud.
Just two months ago, in March 2019, Oracle notified us one more recognition of our trajectory and maturity with respect to Oracle Cloud. From a proven experience in the development of cloud services along with the sale and specialization, we obtained the designation as Platinum Partner Cloud Select EMEA.
Now, with Oracle Application Development Cloud Platform specialization, we take another step in our positioning and commitment to the cloud.
- Adding specializations since 2010
With the objective of training their 22,000 worldwide partners, Oracle launched in October 2009 the Oracle PartnerNetwork Specialized programme, which allows its partners to formally certify their specializations, be recognised for their experience and become preferential providers for Oracle clients. avanttic, also founded in 2009, joined the program at the start of 2010.
A program that was announced just a week after the creation of avanttic, and in which we have been present almost since birth. Oracle PartnerNetwork Specialized allows partners to formally certify our specializations, be recognized for our experience and become preferred suppliers for Oracle customers. From avanttic we joined this program at the beginning of 2010, within the Gold category.
Just a year and a half before we already had our first three specializations, and only two years later, in January 2012, we went from Gold to Platinum. At that time we had 5 specializations: Service-Oriented Architecture, Database, Business Intelligence Foundation, Application Development Framework and Linux.
During the following years the rate of obtaining specializations has been constant. In this fiscal year of Oracle (which ends today) we have achieved five new specializations: Oracle Data Integrator 12c, Java Platform Standard Edition 8, Oracle GoldenGate 12c, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and the aforementioned Oracle Application Development Cloud Platform with which we arrived to the round figure of 40 specializations, in this year, 2019, in which both the Oracle PartnerNetwork Specialized program and avanttic celebrated our first 10 years of life.
