Leading companies demonstrate innovation, environmental leadership, and excellence with Oracle technologies and applications.
Oracle’s customers and partners demonstrate leadership in many areas of technology, applications, and sustainability—from implementing business intelligence initiatives and deploying Oracle grids to solving the challenges of midsize businesses and establishing green business practices. In 2009, Oracle sponsored several awards programs to honor customers and partners for their achievements and vision.
In the area of Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle, in conjunction with six user groups, commended customers for their achievements in middleware deployments with the Oracle Innovation Award (formerly the Oracle Excellence Award). For the second year, Oracle recognized outstanding achievements in environmental leadership with the Oracle Enable the Eco-Enterprise Award (formerly the Oracle Empower the Green Enterprise Award). Oracle honored partners for innovative uses of Oracle technology by presenting two sets of awards: the first annual Oracle PartnerNetwork Global Awards and the Oracle North America Titan Awards. Winners were selected for excellence in solving real-world customer challenges and for their development and deployment of Oracle technology.
Oracle Innovation Awards
The Oracle Innovation Awards recognize organizations for innovative deployments of Oracle application grid, Oracle business intelligence, and Oracle’s enterprise performance management system, all of which are components of Oracle Fusion Middleware. Oracle also recognized one partner for its implementation of Oracle business intelligence and enterprise performance management solutions.
The 2009 awards were cosponsored by Oracle and the Australian Oracle User Group, Independent Oracle Users Group, Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG), Oracle Development Tools User Group (ODTUG), Quest International Users Group, and United Kingdom Oracle User Group. A panel of judges from Oracle, OAUG, ODTUG, special interest groups, and the user community selected the winners.
