Jena, 13 November 2014 - Explorer (UK) Ltd, a leading Oracle Platinum Partner, have formed a partnership with Intershop Communications AG, a leading provider of omni-channel solutions, to provide Oracle Database design, implementation and support services to underpin Intershop’s omni-channel commerce platform.

Working with key partners such as Javelin Group and Carrenza, Explorer are perfectly positioned to provide expert insight into scaling a crucial part of the overall system architecture; the Database, as well as the necessary experience to optimise the Database tier for performance and availability.

Combine that with our excellent support services and we can provide a round-the-clock support package that means no one ever has to worry about Oracle again.”
