Being made an Oracle ACE Associate is a great honor and I can’t think of anyone else more deserving. I’m really proud of Robert and I know the rest of interRel is too.”
The Oracle ACE Program was founded in 2003 as a way to recognize and reward members of the Oracle Technology and Applications communities for their contributions. Members of the program are technologically adept and eager to share their knowledge and experiences. To become an Oracle ACE Associate, an individual must be actively building a sound community profile and must have initiated community contributions in at least two areas.
