Press release – May 2017

By | dbi services in the press, Media releases & news | No Comments

dbi services announces a record year in 2016, the company restructures with David Hueber as new CEO, and Yann Neuhaus as Chairman of the Board and head of the sales team.

2016 was a record year for dbi services, with an increase in turnover of more than 33%. The start-up company confirms its strong foothold among major IT stakeholders in Switzerland. It is adjusting its structure to prepare for the future and set its sights beyond national borders even more strongly.

Delémont, 28/04/2017. In a rapidly-changing market, you have to ask yourself the right questions and build a long-term strategy to anticipate future challenges. dbi offers services based on innovative solutions thanks to the cutting-edge skills of its expert team. These kinds of skills are acquired, built up and kept in place through experience, but equally through company commitment. One of the challenges for dbi services is to recognise trends in technology early enough to allow its experts to keep pace constantly with market expectations. Increasing its visibility is another challenge that dbi services likewise wishes to take on, through more personalised representation and more finely tuned sales activity. Company strategy and sales must be considered as two tasks and functions – Chairman of the Board and Chief Sales Officer – that current dbi services CEO Yann Neuhaus has decided to see through.

“The management of dbi services has thought long and hard about this decision. To tell the truth, we have been preparing for 2 years now. We have just been waiting for dbi services to reach sufficient maturity. Now, this restructuring makes perfect sense. I’m really enthusiastic about taking on the new responsibilities I have been entrusted with, because the future of dbi services is something I really care about”, says Yann Neuhaus.

Current Chief Operations Officer (COO) David Hueber will take over as Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Energetic, skilled and good at listening to colleagues, he will be able to hold course just as well as his predecessor.

“His technical expertise, his interpersonal skills, his great ability to explain things simply, and his natural leadership will make him a superb CEO”, says Yann Neuhaus.

As far as figures go, 2016 was a highly successful year for dbi services. Its gross turnover came in at 8.44 million Swiss francs, an increase of 33% on 2015 figures. This growth is principally due to development of facilities management contract sales (+35%) and consultancy services (+29%).

Staff numbers are following suit, with 51 members in the dbi services team at the close of 2016 and plans for further expansion in the first quarter of 2017. This general expansion is partly explained by strong development of the Zurich branch, which has been able to carve itself a place in a very competitive market. And in addition, new partnerships with OpenText eDOCS, Cloudera and Attunity have boosted the services offered by the software company.

“We are offering more cutting-edge services now than ever before. Whether responding to requirements for document management systems, Big Data and Business Intelligence platforms, or simply data access, we offer our customers solutions by having qualified experts who can put them in place.” So says David Hueber, new CEO of dbi services.

Oracle OpenWorld 2016 : what you need to know

By | Media releases & news | No Comments

Oracle OpenWorld 2016

What you need to know

The Oracle 12c is not released on-premises yet, but it is available since November 8th 2016 in the Oracle Cloud!

dbi services was present at the OOW16 in San Francisco from September 18th to 22nd. The OOW is considered as the most important yearly meeting of the Oracle community. Our experts have here the pleasure to keep you on track with the latest Oracle news and trends.

The long-awaited cloud version of the Oracle 12c Release is now available!

Larry Ellison (co-founder and Oracle CTO) finally announced the availability of the 12cR2 during his keynotes, but in a first step as a cloud version only (PDB as a Service). Furthermore, a new Oracle service was announced by Oracle’s CTO with the “Oracle Exadata Express Cloud Service”!

 

Good to know about the “Oracle Exadata Express Cloud Service!

There is no trial version and no access to the OS. A PDB can be quickly provisioned, though there is no access to the OS and some features are restrained (in order not to break the CDB). In fact, this new service will be entirely managed by Oracle and the version 12.2 will be launched afterwards. The « go life » date is not known so far.

If you missed a keynote or did not have the opportunity to participate in San Francisco, then you may wish to watch the keynotes online -> click here

 

Certification “OCM 12c”

By | Media releases & news, unclassified | No Comments

Congratulations!

Two Oracle Database 12c Certified Masters (OCM 12c) at dbi services

dbi services is proud to announce that two of its experts, Franck Pachot and William Sescu, successfully passed the exam “Oracle Database 12c Certified Master”, which is the expert level certification for Oracle Database.

It should be noted that Franck Pachot and William Sescu passed this exam just one month after the Upgrade Exam for OCM 12c was introduced (End of the year 2015).

Such an achievement is the result of a combination of a gained experience with customers, internal researches, their participation to the 12c beta program as well as a tremendous preparation on their side. It’s a hands-on exam that requires both: a wide knowledge and stress management as the given time for each topic is very short.

In addition, William Sescu passed the Oracle Certified Expert, Oracle Database 12c: RAC and Grid Infrastructure Administrator (1Z0-068) exam. Consequently, being OCE RAC/GI 12c + OCE Data Guard 12c + OCM 12c, makes him de-facto an: Oracle Database 12c Maximum Availability Certified Master. This is the highest certification you can get on Oracle Database.

Franck Pachot, for his part became Oracle ACE Director”. This latter title is provided by Oracle to Oracle top-tier specialists making significant contributions to the Oracle community and interacting with Oracle product managers.
