Challenges

The business challenges that led Oracle NetSuite to evaluate and ultimately select Secure Code Warrior®:

  • Existing training was not interactive, contextual, or engaging for the development teams
  • There was no way to effectively assess and benchmark a developer’s secure coding knowledge
  • The struggle to identify and target skills/knowledge gaps in our team and build a program to address them

Use Case
