Miles continues, "Partners fulfil a vital purpose in supporting a successful Oracle ecosystem in the UK and Ireland. They bring domain expertise to the fore in areas which Oracle is not able to resource and customers cannot afford to develop themselves. I am very pleased that UKOUG is able to launch these partner awards as a feature which will acknowledge their contribution to the success of UK PLC and especially our members."
