Advancing with Knowledge Amidst Uncertainty
There are so many factors and circumstances in life that are outside of our control. As we move into the last quarter of 2023, we are acutely aware of this as uncertainty looms in many corners of our world. How do we continue to empower those around us to be the best they can be and continue moving forward? The answer is knowledge. By putting yourself, your organization, and your people in a position to learn and grow, you help minimize uncertainty.
I am excited to share that Apps Associates has earned Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Cloud Solutions Provider Expertise status. We are proud to be recognized within this program as it demonstrates our strength in OCI and provides our customers with new options for bundling infrastructure and costs.

I’m also enthusiastic to share the promotion of Jill Quintiliani to Chief Financial Officer. Jill embodies the spirit of continuous learning and a thirst for knowledge. Jill has been with Apps Associates for just over five years. Jill leads from the front, working with her team to develop and mentor them. Equally as important, she reached across practices, developing a relationship with the practice leaders and an understanding of each business. She and her team have unified disparate systems, incorporated automation, and reduced the time for us to close each month.
In the spirit of advancing with knowledge, our team was busy throughout September, attending and participating in anchor conferences from our partners at Salesforce and Oracle. At Salesforce’s Dreamforce Conference, our team met with customers, prospects, and Salesforce employees to learn more about their challenges and the direction they are taking their business. John Houstma, our Salesforce Alliance Director, shares the top three takeaways from Dreamforce, including the launch of Einstein 1 Platform, Data, AI and CRM, and Enhanced Data Cloud features.

Similarly, at Oracle CloudWorld, our team had a valuable dialog with all of our constituents and attended many learning sessions. Myles Gilsenan, our VP of Data, Analytics, and AI shares his five key takeaways from Oracle CloudWorld. They include GenAI Changes Everything. Fusion Analytics Warehouse Becomes Fusion Data Intelligence Platform. The Future is Multi-Cloud – Oracle Deepens Relationship with Microsoft Azure. A Good Cloud Should Give You Answers, and Oracle is Committed to Customer Success. Read his article here.
