CIMMO IT Team Attending Oracle NetSuite Builathon 4Good
Last Tuesday, September 10, CIMMO IT team participated in the Oracle NetSuite’ Buildathon 4Good. It was a full day event full of learning-by-doing and knowledge-sharing. CIMMO and NetSuite teams were able to address critical issues and implement creative solutions using the NetSuite Safe Search feature. The event was an in-person Suite Pro Bono where teams of talented NetSuite employees work with current Social Impact customers all day to build solutions to a specific NetSuite challenge that social impact program members face. According to Carolina Montana Jaramillo, from CIMMO IT team, the event helped her to focus on understanding some of the critical features of the NetSuite platform in a combination of training, consulting, building and learning.
According to Ashley Hackett from NetSuite, the Buildathons 4Good are events held around the world that bring together teams of NetSuite employees with Social Impact organizations to address a specific NetSuite challenge that they’re facing.
During each Buildathon she explains, NetSuite works with organizations to understand their current NetSuite use, identify roadblocks and opportunities and deploy one or more solutions. The result is a solution that nonprofits can more easily maintain and take advantage of. At the end of each event, nonprofits present their learnings and solutions, sharing their knowledge and passion with other attendees.
For Dr. Youssef Youssef, CIMMO’s President and CEO, the Buildathon 4Good is a valuable contribution for not-for-profit organizations like CIMMO, and represents a precise alignment between the missions of the Chartered Institute of Marketing Management of Ontario and Oracle NetSuite in making the world a better place through social impact.
