news Enterprise technology giant Oracle has published details of half a dozen sizable deployments of its technology by Australian customers, as it continues its push to convince local technology buyers of the popularity of its Fusion platforms.
The first example listed by the vendor in several statements published in late April relates to professional body Engineers Australia, which Oracle said had implemented the 11g versions of its BPM, WebLogic, SOA and E-Business suites to support its online eChartered platform.
According to Oracle, the system, which went live in early 2013, provides new online self-service capabilities which significantly improve the user experience for the group’s members replacing many cumbersome manual processes. The solution has resulted in enrolment processes being completed “90 per cent faster than before”, while staff can generate assessment reports in “seconds rather than 45 minutes”. The organisation has also cut the time taken to develop new system modules by three to four weeks. “Oracle offered a more comprehensive, cost-effective, and long-term solution than other middleware vendors,” said Richard Holmes, MIS Renewal Program Manager, Engineers Australia.

On Melbourne Cup Day the group’s site hits 1,000-plus transactions per second. Continue…
