ZERO on-site consulting

Lately we have had deliveries of upgrades, modernization and integrations from our Forms & APEX factory without any on-site consulting – all handled via a shared development resource setup at the Softbase hosting center. This setup acts as an extension of the customer’s development environment. The simultaneous access to the code – combined with SKYPE-meetings – provides agility and efficiency.


This relates both to implementation of our standard services like Forms-APEX workflow – but also projects with extra, very customer-specific requirements. The “remote”-procedure  motivates clear documented definitions – a recent upgrade from 11g to 12c for Bridon-Bekaert Ltd. in UK  included:

1) Resolving host commands and making them OS aware, supporting both UNIX/LINUX flavours and Windows
2) Solved Uppercase/Lowercase object names, so both Linux and Windows can be supported with the same source
3) Configure Linux OEL7 Server for production
– CUPS for ZEBRA Label printing
– SHARED Files handling with Windows
4) Duplicate development environment on both Windows and Linux
5) Automated compile scripts on Windows
6) Automated compile scripts on Linux
7) Automated linking uppercase/lowercase of objects on Linux


Now we look forward to actually meet the customer, the forthcoming UKOUG Techfest 2019 will provide an ideal opportunity for relation-building


Due to tools, methods and procedures, these Factory-deliveries are offered at fixed base-prices
