One month in at Oracle, and I’ve been moving at what feels like warp speed – both literally and figuratively. My team has been hard at work building the intake survey and that will solicit volunteers for the Phase 3 efficacy trials. We’re also building all of the backend applications that will be used run analytics to select qualified participants and assign them to a local clinic to receive the actual vaccine. This project is actually a part of the US Government’s Operation Warp Speed program – a program whose goal is to deliver 300 million doses of a safe and effective vaccine by January 2021.
It should come as no surprise that we’re building 100% of this solution with Oracle’s low code platform, Oracle APEX. Oracle APEX was the natural choice here, given the rapidly changing requirements, the need for a 100% responsive and custom UI, and the ability to deliver something substantial in just a couple of weeks. The entire infrastructure – and it’s a lot more than just APEX & ORDS – all runs on the Oracle Cloud.
This is just one of four active projects that we have going on. And thus the reason for this post – we’re growing. Fast. Each of the four current projects have multiple phases, many of which have yet to even start. And there’s a bunch of new and exciting work on the not-too-distant horizon as we continue to reach out and assist those in need during this global pandemic. Pandemic systems is also just the beginning. Look for more exciting announcements about what we’re up to as we can share them.
We’re already well on our way putting together a world-class team to work on these projects. You may have already seen Tweets from Doug Gault and Dan Mcghan about their roles on this new team. These are just two of the several new team members that we’ve already recruited for this team.
Despite this star-studded cast, we still need more help. This is where you come in. If you’re a seasoned APEX developer looking for a chance to make an actual difference in the world, we should talk. We have a number of open slots that we need filled ASAP. Know any good DevOps, Infrastructure or even DBA-type folks? We’ll need them, too.
