Qubix Slovenia was named Oracle's Autonomous Partner of the Year 2019 award in the CEE region at Oracle’s Partner Day that took place in Ljubljana, Slovenia on 21 March.
Speaking about the award, Žiga Vaupot, Country Manager of Qubix Slovenia said, “We are delighted to receive this prestigious award. Qubix is one of the first Oracle partners, globally, to work with Oracle Cloud technologies such as Oracle Analytics Cloud and Oracle's Autonomous Datawarehouse. We are also one of the first in EMEA that have successfully delivered Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADW) to a client. Qubix is currently working to implement a corporate business analytics solution at Unior, and this will be the first ADW implementation in the CEE region.”
The Unior Project
Unior was founded as a blacksmith's shop over 100 years ago in the small village of Zreče, Slovenia. It is now an 1800-employee strong company, operating across 15 subsidiaries, and with annual revenue of 165M EUR. Unior’s operations are divided into four major programmes; these are, forging parts, hand tools, machine equipment, and tourism.
In 2017, Unior embarked on a Business Analytics programme which subsequently led to the business requirements definition in 2018 and the implementation of business analytics. Qubix has been working with Unior throughout this whole process. In the business requirements phase, Qubix partnered with Fakta Plus, a business consultancy company, to understand Unior’s C-level stakeholder requirements.
Using extensive technical expertise whilst “walking on the edge” of Oracle’s cloud, Qubix has been able to implement a business analytics solution, based on Oracle’s Analytics Cloud and Oracle AWD. Oracle’s cloud value proposition has been compelling for Unior by bringing together a series of business and technical benefits. All of this made the decision to build a cloud-based solution the obvious one.
