The Pythian Group has achieved four specializations under the OPN (Oracle PartnerNetwork) Specialized Program. Pythian, already a Platinum member of the OPN, has met a series of demanding technical and business requirements to earn the specializations in Oracle Database 11g, Real Application Clusters (RAC), Database Performance Tuning, and Oracle Linux.
The specialized status serves as an indicator to both Oracle customers and to the Oracle team that Pythian is "a preferred go-to partner that they can engage" when facing complex problems. According to Pythian chief technology officer Alexander Gorbachev, Pythian has worked with 1,200 customers globally since its inception in 1997, with 140 of these considered active customers. Pythian's customers tend to be characterized as having "critical data with high intensity data processing and reasonably large data sets," commented Gorbachev. Virtually all of the major vertical industries are represented in Pythian's customer base, particularly among "any customers who are managing the data where the data is both volatile and critical to the business operation," according to Gorbachev.
The company has offices in Toronto, Ottawa, the United States, the United Kingdom, India, and Sydney. Visit the Pythian website to learn more.
