RST, an established Oracle Platinum Partner in the UK, has landed in Brisbane Australia, bringing Oracle license, support and professional services to the Australia and Asia-Pacific (APAC) market.
With skills and expertise spanning the entire Oracle technology stack, RST is well equipped to offer end-to-end solutions to organisations across all industries and of all environments.
RST chose Australia as the next office location to enable customers to benefit from a local service provider, with a global presence. This has fuelled RST's expansion to provide both commercial and technical services, as well as contribute to the wider Oracle community in the Australia and APAC region.
Since opening the Australia office in January 2013, RST have been able to adopt a follow-the-sun services model, meaning a true 24x7 service can be delivered on a global scale by employees on an RST site. In doing this, RST is able to ensure that there are always highly skilled DBA's on hand, providing customers with the highest levels of support. In addition to this, having several offices in Australia and the UK means customers are reassured that there is no single point of failure.
The success of RST over the last 15 years has meant that the company has grown substantially, enabling them to greatly expand their product and service offerings. RST are committed to staying up-to-date with the latest Oracle technology innovations and work hard to ensure their customers are the first to benefit from new releases. This has led RST to invest in the Oracle Engineered Systems portfolio, and they now have their own Oracle Exadata unit, Oracle Exalytics unit, Oracle Database Appliance and Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance. This has given customers the opportunity to benefit from a range of services including free proofs of concept allowing customer to try the technology and see what benefits it can bring to their organisation.
Matthew Summerbell, RST Country Manager, is leading the APAC expansion. Matthew has said: "I am very excited about the Oracle support and service opportunities that RST can bring to Australia and the APAC region as a whole. We are looking forward to working with the Australian Oracle community to deliver true value around their investment in the Oracle technology stack." He added "In the UK we are seen as the premier Oracle solution provider and we hope to replicate this success in the Australia and APAC region through delivering the same high standard of services and solutions."
