”We are excited to announce the Oracle partner network recognition.
This program gives a unique advantage to position XTRON in the North
American region. We have a strategic focus on oracle fusion middleware
including Oracle SOA Suite. Getting this SOA specialization re-assures
customers that XTRON is geared up and committed to deliver. This would
also enable our customers to confidently work with a great company and
people who are certified, specialized and committed for great quality.”
said Jag Puttanna, CEO of XTRON.
Why did XTRON decide to become SOA specialized?
SOA specialization gives a unique positioning to differentiate our services among the Oracle partners. XTRON is among the first 13 partners in North America to achieve SOA specialization.
Can you describe the marketing activities with Oracle?
We have used various marketing kits for lead generation activities. We saved significant time and efforts to launch new campaigns.
How did you team with Oracle around the sales activities?
Sales alignment is the ultimate key behind our success. Our business development team is aligned with regional channel and sales managers. We also had our presence at various events like Special Interest User Group (SIG) etc.
Did you get Oracle support to train your consultants in the Oracle SOA Suite?
Oracle competency portal has been extremely useful to train our consultants. Prerecorded webinars and guided learning path has been the key behind implementation exams. Our consultants also participated at various OTN developer day and live virtual classes.
What are the next steps for XTRON?
We are looking forward to develop competency in newer offerings like CEP, Webcenter and Application Grid. Exalogic is another exiting area to begin and explore. We would continue to invest and strengthen our relation with Oracle.
