At Rittman Mead we’re always keen to collaborate with our peers and partners in the Oracle industry, running events such as the BI Forum in Brighton and Atlanta each year and speaking at user groups in the UK, Europe, USA and around the world. We were pleased therefore to be contacted by our friends over at Amis in the Netherlands just before this year’s Openworld with an idea they had about forming an expert-services Oracle partner network, and to see if we’d be interested in getting involved.
Fast-forward a few weeks and thanks to the organising of Amis’ Robbrecht van Amerongen we had our first meeting at San Francisco’s Thirsty Bear, where Amis and Rittman Mead were joined by the inaugural member partners Avio Consulting, E-VIta AS, Link Consulting, Opitz Consulting and Rubicon Red.

"The Red Expert Alliance is an international network of first-class Oracle consulting companies. We are working together to deliver the maximum return on our customers investment in Oracle technology. We do this by collaborating, sharing and challenging each other to improve ourselves and our customers.
Collaborating with other companies is a powerful way to overcome challenges of today’s fast-paced world and improve competitive advantage. Collaboration provides participants mutual benefits such as shared resources, shared expertise and enhanced creativity; it gives companies an opportunity to improve their performance and operations, achieving more flexibility thanks to shared expertise and higher capacity. Collaboration also fuels innovation by providing more diversity to the workplace which can result in better-suited solutions for customers."
There’s also a press release, and a partner directory listing out our details along with the other partners in the alliance. We’re looking forward to collaborating with the other partners in the Red Expert Alliance, increasing our shared knowledge and collaborating together on Oracle customer projects in the future.
