The Oracle Digital Prime (ODP) Cloud Platform team is expanding across Australia and New Zealand! We caught up with Amanda Yew, Product Sales Manager, to hear what makes this such a golden opportunity for people with a positive attitude and a desire to grow.
Why did you join the Oracle Digital Prime (ODP) Cloud Platform team?
I’ve always been an admirer of Oracle as a world-class provider of enterprise technology. When I heard they were launching a new division to focus on providing best-in-class cloud solutions to the SMB market, I knew straight away it was something I wanted to be involved in.
What is it like to work in the ODP team? How is a day in the life of a Cloud Platform Representative?
Having an outspoken personality, the part I love most about my job is the endless opportunities to engage with different customers and make new connections.
You would typically find me starting off the day checking emails, making phone calls and so forth. Once I get all that done with, I move on to the more exciting parts—meeting with customers, understanding their needs, and finding solutions that are the perfect fit.
On top of that, I also organize workshops and events for decision makers and business owners. The idea is that they come together to bounce off new ideas and get inspired by what Oracle has to offer.
Why do you enjoy working in ODP Cloud Platform? What inspires you in your role?
What makes Oracle stands out from the rest is that you simply never stop learning. Every day is a brand-new experience.
As for inspiration, that comes from my customers. Nothing beats a genuine “thank you” or a handshake from a happy customer.

We help them embrace transformation and make every part of their business run smoother—and at a fraction of the costs they imagined.
Thanks to the Oracle Cloud business model, SMB customers can turn into connected, flexible, and future-proof businesses. So as you can imagine, it feels pretty great to be able to make such a difference.
