It is no secret that AVIO Consulting has some of the best Oracle FMW consultants out there. And because of the complex and interesting use cases our engagements tend to address, our consultants have an opportunity to learn something new with each engagement. Therefore, knowledge sharing is one of they key areas of focus at AVIO. One of the best ways to grow our consultants and provide resources to our clients they can't find anywhere else is to continue to learn new skills and then share those skills and experiences with the other AVIO consultants. We have monthly meetings to help facilitate knowledge sharing and once a year we have an all hands, off site meeting. Today, we are holding our meeting in New Orleans and in addition to the great food and interesting people watching, a number of AVIO consultants are presenting their experiences and lessons learned from recent projects. It is fun to listen to the lively debates and discussions between the group as we discuss what our best practices should be. It is fun to work with such passionate and smart people.
The focus of the presentations this morning was on testing and code quality. Carlo Arteaga and Aaron Dolan each presented on different elements of using SOAP UI to assist in automated testing within SOA and BPM projects. Given the pace of change and flexibility required on our projects, using automated testing to quickly validate that changes do not negatively impact the rest of the application is critical. Because of our focus on knowledge sharing, AVIO Consulting now has a standard automated testing framework that can be used across all of our projects. This framework will ensure we have an effecient and robust testing capability that reduces the risk of change for our clients as they modify and adapt their processes.
