In this episode, Hall welcomes Mia Urman, Founder & CEO of AuraPlayer.

AuraPlayer was founded in January 2013 by Mia, an Oracle veteran with over 20 years of Oracle Forms experience, and Java Guru Yossi Nakash, CTO. AuraPlayer’s founders built a modernization solution for Oracle Applications that would activate and communicate with Oracle Forms in an automated way, without redevelopment or migration changes. Today, AuraPlayer sells its products and services to businesses and government offices all over the world.

Headquartered in West Orange, New Jersey, AuraPlayer’s goal is that no Oracle Forms customer should be forced to migrate and no EBS application should be forced onto the cloud. AuraPlayer resides alongside your current Oracle applications and helps launch them into the digital world.

AuraPlayer’s mission is to build and deploy enterprise-grade, Oracle-based business applications by using next-generation technologies that will help you take your business to the next level.

Mia is an Oracle ACE Director and a renowned expert on Oracle development technologies and mobility, with over twenty years experience working, presenting, supporting, training, and consulting Oracle products. 

Prior to founding AuraPlayer, while providing consulting services to customers, Mia became intimately familiar with some of the leading challenges facing Oracle Forms/EBS legacy clients and co-founded AuraPlayer Ltd., a development house to provide mobilization and automation solutions.

Mia is a coveted speaker on Oracle technologies at various conferences including Oracle OpenWorld, IOUG Collaborate, ODTUG Kscope, UKOUG, DOAG, and keynote speaker at other Oracle Technology events.

Mia discusses growth, trends, changes expected in the next 12 months in the mobility industry, and more.
