Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) September 22, 2010

Enkitec, a leading provider of Oracle’s full range of hardware and software solutions, today announced that it has become one of the first Oracle partners in North America to achieve Platinum Specialization status within several key categories in the new Oracle Partner Network (OPN), including Oracle Exadata.

“Enkitec was an early adopter of the OPN Specialized Program, thanks in large part to the guidance received through Avnet Technology Solutions’ exclusive ‘Under Our Wing’ program,” said Wade Nicolas, president of Enkitec. “As a specialized partner, we can clearly differentiate ourselves in the marketplace and provide both potential and existing customers with enhanced offerings and skills matched specifically to their needs.”

“By making the strategic investment to add Exadata into our offerings – including the launch of our Exadata Technology Lab – we’ve positioned ourselves strongly at the leading edge of Oracle technologies to further empower our customers,” he added.

With decades of experience, the team at Enkitec has focused on Oracle technology for small, midsize and Fortune 500 companies. Their database consultants average 15 years of hands-on Oracle experience, making them some of the most knowledgeable Oracle experts in the country.

Having made a commitment to being experts in building, developing and implementing a full range of Oracle technologies, Enkitec has worked diligently to complete the requirements and final approvals for Platinum Specializations in the following areas:

    Oracle Exadata
    Oracle Database 11g (completed)
    Oracle Database Security (completed)
    Oracle Database Warehousing
    Oracle Enterprise Linux
    Oracle Database Performance Tuning
    Oracle Real Application Clusters

“Avnet’s ‘Under Our Wing’ program helped Enkitec streamline and simplify the Oracle Specialization process, guiding them through their selected Oracle Specialization tracks from start to finish,” explained Mike Hurst, vice president and global supplier business executive focused on Avnet Technology Solutions’ Oracle relationship worldwide. “This one-of-a-kind program provides a comprehensive training curriculum and expert one-on-one support through each phase of the process for partners who want to achieve a level of Oracle specialization that puts them ahead of the competition and makes them true trusted advisors for their end–user customers.”
