This battle for all the Oracle Partners in Belgium and the Netherlands is organized by Oracle (Yves Van Looy(BE) and Charles Billar(NL)). All employees of these Oracle Partner companies can compete to be the Oracle smartest of their company for that year. Just like last year, the contest was also aiming to provide an in-depth architectural knowledge about seven different technology tracks.
Like previous editions of AYTS, iAdvise joined this year’s AYTS contest.
This year, 17 people represented iAdvise, and tried to win the prestigious price: a business travel to the Oracle HQ in San Francisco and Las Vegas.
Six out of seven tracks were covered by the iAdvise team: Security, Data Integration, BI & Applications, HW & Software combination, Service Integration and Database & options.
This year, iAdvise also improved the oraevents site which is used for this contest. Many new features and functionalities were added to improve the user experience of this tool. The usability and new functionalities were clearly appreciated by all the contenders, all credits goes to the iAdvise apex team who really made this a very nice tool to work with!
Of course we also had a top 3 for iAdvise: Tuur made it as ‘nummero uno’ for the security track, second place went to David for the BI track and on the third place Kristof who also followed the security tracks. Congratulations to all three!
So we had some high scores on different tracks, which ones again proves that iAdvise is very proficient in several technologies.
But even more important was that Tuur got a gigantic high score of 39/40, something that nobody ever achieved before in the AYTS history and it will likely take some time before someone will achieve an equal or higher score.
He is without question the very convincing winner of this edition, and will enjoy his trip to the States! Congratulations Tuur!
Next year will be without question very exciting, since there are a whole lot of new technologies coming up our way and of course iAdvise will be one of the participating companies!
