Cloud Challenge by Chris Murphy


Five projects show the many use cases for cloud platforms.

For Debra Lilley, the time feels right to stop thinking about building something with a cloud development platform, and start doing it. So what else to do but sign up for an event challenging teams to build a cloud-based project in a single day?

“The best way to learn something is to dig in and have a go,” says Lilley, an Oracle ACE Director and vice president at systems integration firm Certus Solutions.

That attitude explains why Lilley joined not one but two teams taking part in the OTN Developer Cloud Challenge, held outside of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in early June 2016, as part of the AMIS Oracle Conference in the Netherlands. One of Lilley’s teams used Oracle Cloud Platform tools to craft an app for sharing flight and lodging details with your travel companions to an event such as this cloud challenge. The other worked on refining an extension to Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud for managing the HR policy for bringing complaints against senior staffers.

Events such as the Amsterdam cloud challenge help systems integrators get hands-on with the tools and projects they’re increasingly going to use in their work with customers. Here are five projects from the challenge, with insights from the Oracle ACE Directors leading the projects on what they’re learning about cloud platforms.

Continuous Innovation

Project: A mobile app that lets you share travel plans with colleagues, so you can book at the same hotel or share a cab if you’re attending the same conference. Read the complete article here.
