Oracle strengthens partner network in SADC to support cloud growth

Oracle has reinforced its commitment to advance cloud growth and provide near-seamless support to customers and partners in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) by naming Britehouse and AGILEUM as two of the first partners to join the Cloud Excellence Implementer (CEI) programme. Launched at OpenWorld 2017, the CEI partner programme is designed to accelerate customers’ digital transformation in the cloud. The programme recognises and rewards partners that continually demonstrate expertise, a successful track record, and superior customer satisfaction in delivering high quality Oracle Software as a Service (SaaS) Cloud implementations to customers.

“For Oracle, success is not defined by how well we do, but how well our partners and customers do,” says Robert Williamson, Partner Digital Transformation Leader, South Africa and SADC, Oracle Corporation. “Both Britehouse and AGILEUM are committed to deepening their customer engagements and building long-term relationships, making them great partners to join the CEI programme. We believe it is vital to our long-term success to recognise skilled partners who drive business growth and employment in the SADC region.”

The CEI programme was developed to provide customers with a clear, objective and informative view of partner qualifications for implementing Oracle SaaS solutions. A proven record of customer commitment, sustained innovation and competency are some of the core parameters of the CEI programme. Through the OPN Solutions Catalog, customers are now able to easily identify and engage with partner firms that best align to their specific project needs. Access to this information helps customers minimise implementation risk, quickly adopt new cloud functionality, and continuously expand their Oracle Cloud footprint.

Tanya Langbein, Group Executive Oracle Division, Britehouse, said: “We have taken great pride in delivering Oracle Cloud solutions to our clients and as a partner of the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), we are pleased to receive recognition of our proven track record, and ongoing expertise. Also, Oracle’s strength in the SADC region affords us the opportunity to entrench our footprint in this vibrant market and to use its innovation to propel our business forward.”

“We’ve nurtured our 18-year relationship with Oracle because the company is fast-paced, innovative and committed,” says Sylvain Deslandes, CEO, AGILEUM. “The CEI programme bolsters our relationships with our customers and opens up new opportunities and avenues of business.

Britehouse is a Cloud Select and Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork. AGILEUM is a Cloud Standard and Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork.
