Elevate in 2019
I am fresh from our recent sales kick-off meeting in Boston where we had our talented sales, delivery, and marketing teams together with leadership to ensure that we continue to provide the best value to our customers on their journey to the cloud. Our theme was Elevate and we did just that, bringing in key partners and customers to speak first-hand about why they selected Apps Associates to move and manage their business critical Oracle applications to the cloud. Apps Associates is a customer-centric organization so hearing first-hand from our customers and having the opportunity to engage was a critical ingredient to our success. How organizations can get their legacy Oracle Applications to the cloud was the focus of the conversation while addressing the benefits and challenges of doing so.
2018 was filled with some new faces, partnerships, and customers as well as recognition. In October, we were honored to win Oracle’s Prestigious Excellence Award for the third year in a row. We were thrilled to announce our Strategic Collaboration Agreement with Amazon Web Services in November, and share our news that we would offer Managed Services on VMware cloud on AWS. We successfully completed the Rigorous SOC2 Type 1 Security Examination. We set the bar high and look forward to elevating our services to our customers in 2019 and beyond.
We honored and recognized our top performers, heard first-hand from practice leaders, and provided the opportunity to network and engage with all of our associates. The feedback was extremely positive and we are refreshed, recharged, and ready to embrace customers as they migrate their legacy Oracle applications to the cloud. Thank you to our employees, partners, and customers who joined us for this event.
As we move into 2019, we want to keep everyone informed on what we see in the marketplace, so check out our blog, news and events, and learning and development pages. You can connect with us on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook.
