Business Reply, a Reply Group company specialising in software innovation processes based on the Oracle Application Suites and Technology Reply, a Reply Group company specialising in consulting, design and implementation services for solutions based on Oracle technology, have been named "Cloud Partners of the Year" by Oracle.
The "Cloud Partner of the Year" award was given to Technology Reply for its continuous investment and substantial expertise in Oracle’s Platform as a Service (PaaS) solutions – expertise that it gained through its support of major European clients and its involvement in continuous technology update projects and Beta Programs. For its part, Business Reply was awarded the title for its role in supporting the first European implementation of Oracle ERP Cloud for Ringo Mobile, the new mobile phone operator within the ICS Group specialising in innovative mobile services that are designed to meet its customers’ international communication needs.
"For us, selecting a cloud-based service was a fundamental step," said Ramy Berbesh, Chairman of the ICS Group. "It has enabled us to swiftly tackle the expansion and internationalisation of our company, thanks to the efficiency, flexibility and scalability provided by cloud solutions. We chose Business Reply," continued Berbesh, "because, from the very beginning of our partnership, they were able to clearly understand our requirements and support us in all phases of the project, from the move to a cloud-based solution in a multi-country framework to the selection of the best ERP solution available and implementation of the project. By adopting Oracle's ERP Cloud application, we also gained immediate access to an important tool for our business activities, being able to invest appropriately, knowing that we have an adjustable and scalable solution that can support our strategy and our market positioning over time".
"Once again, Reply Group companies have shown an extraordinary degree of innovation in the implementation of business-critical projects based on Oracle solutions," explained Sauro Romani, Alliances and Channels Director at Oracle Italy. "We'd like to congratulate Business Reply and Technology Reply on winning this award in the field of cloud-based solutions, a key area at this time of major transformation based on the digitisation of the economy and society".
The network of Reply companies specialising in Oracle technologies has always been closely associated with the development of Oracle's service offering in terms of both technology and application products. As a result, the group now has one of the main European Competence Centres that is able to cover the entire stack of Oracle solutions as well as offer expertise in the application suites and in the main vertical solutions for industry. The partnership with Oracle has been further strengthened over the course of 2014, particularly with regard to Cloud-based platforms, Customer Experience, Modern Marketing, Big Data, CPM and ecommerce. Consequently, Reply has become a centre of expertise for the three Oracle Cloud Computing product areas: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS).
