OOW15 - Representing Certus Solutions

Certus Team
Certus were really busy at Oracle Open World, as well as myself there was our CEO Mark Sweeny, our COO Tim Warner and our EVP of Cloud Applications Richard Atkins. We also hosted Richard Summerfield the Group HR Director at JT Global, a Certus customer who spoke at OOW. That is a big commitment from a small company but one we think important for both us and our customer base.

I spent my first day out at Oracle HQ meeting with development and discussing approaches for new use cases within Cloud Applications. We work closely with development, beta testing releases, training on their behalf and working with customers who want to make the journey to the cloud. We share our challenges and achievements to ensure the product develops the way real customers want it to.

I also spent time talking to product development around PaaS4SaaS and how that is rapidly developing for our world.

I attended many meetings during OOW on behalf of Certus and as a team it was defiantly worth the investment, we have move forward on may fronts with lots of alliances in the many different areas of Oracle.

I spoke as Certus in my session on 'Forming Your Future', Tim spoke on '10 Ways to Enhance Your Oracle HCM Cloud Implementation' (download link CON8983) which also had a great attendance, and Mark facilitated the presentation from the two Richards which talked about JT's journey into the cloud.

Richard Summerfield is a great advocate for HCM Cloud and Certus, he put his reputation on the line when he recommended this as the solution for JT and it has paid off, giving their rapidly growing and transforming organisation a great HR backbone to enable further expansion and success. He has previously been quoted in Oracle Scene, spoke at the Modern Business Day in UK, and Oracle released a Forbes Article and video during OOW.
You can download the presentation (CON9059) here.

The two Richard's managed to score tickets for the basketball at Oracle Arena and I joined them and Mark at the Elton John Concert, so we managed to have fun as well as get a lot of work done.
