Last year October, dressed in their best attire, the avanttic team exhibited sheer pride and confidence as it received yet another recognition at the Oracle Excellence Awards. Adding a feather to their cap, the company bagged the award for being the best worldwide partner in the Platform as a Service (PaaS) category. Despite having received numerous accolades for its efforts in recent years (5 national awards and another 5 in EMEA), assisting customers in transferring their workloads to the cloud, avanttic is not resting on its laurels. For a company to stay distinctive in a highly-competitive market, year after year, it stands testimony to avanttic’s unique modus operandi when it comes materialising the clients’ evolution to the cloud.
“Since opening the doors in 2009, we have evolved as a high-quality and specialized technology consultant focused on customers. After almost a decade of activity, we continue to strengthen these two pillars every day, together with our values: the vocation of helping customers, a commitment to the professional and human development of the team and the management of knowledge to encourage creativity, passion, and growth,” extols the CEO of avanttic, Jesús García. avanttic is a specialized IT consultancy aimed to provide high-value solutions to customers for assisting them in meeting the business requirements through Oracle technology. With 37 Oracle specializations, avanttic offers a plethora of Oracle consulting services in different areas including cloud, business analytics, application development, mobile, integration, data management, infrastructure, security and management.
With Oracle support, avanttic guarantees clients success in implementing the most suitable technological solution while ensuring compliance with quality standards and comprehensive knowledge of the latest technology.
To optimise the digital transformation journey and effectively carry it out, avanttic has incorporated the technological facilitators that Oracle has defined as the key levers in addressing digital transformation: SMACT, an acronym for Social, Mobile, Analytics, Cloud, and Internet of Things. The company connects people, processes, and information with the most complete portfolio of intranets and extranets for organisations. Bringing in their expertise in Oracle Mobile Platform, avanttic designs and implements on-premise, cloud, and hybrid architectures and develops all types of apps on different frameworks. The company’s deep knowledge in applying Big Data solutions provides organisations with useful information in their decision making. That’s not all. The team carries out consolidation evaluations to simplify the complexity of the Oracle infrastructures and platforms, as a prior step to deployment on the cloud. “We have well-defined services and strategies to guarantee the success of the journey to the cloud,” adds García. avanttic also helps their customers to implement IoT services as a unique opportunity to relate differently to their clients, to grow and to open new business lines.
At avanttic, the consultants are the main engine for innovation and development. “Our consultants, having a high specialization ratio, provide a broad experience and a methodology aimed at innovation and transformation,” notes García. In an instance, avanttic assisted the Sant Just Desvern Local when they sought to modernize the most frequent and in-demand processes, without requiring citizens to handle new apps or software. The client was planning to introduce a system that would change the principal means of communicating with citizens. avanttic successfully implemented, trained and integrated the chatbot capability of Oracle Mobile Cloud, allowing citizens to communicate with the council better with shortened waiting times and reduced costs in the call center. This project was awarded in San Francisco with an Oracle Excellence Award in 2018 (in the Application Development Digital Assistant category).
An important objective for avanttic in 2019 is to continue expanding internationally. The company also joined the ‘RED Expert Alliance’ (REAL), a collaboration network between expert Oracle partners formed by companies from nine different countries. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, avanttic is commemorating this important date for the company, putting the focus on the three axes that they have defined internally: customer orientation, internal innovation and personal and group commitment. "Moreover, we are already a reference partner in PaaS for SaaS and is in our plans to start a new solution line based on the implementation of Oracle Applications,” concludes García.
