CIBER Debuts Integrated Packaged Solutions Leveraging Oracle SoftwareFebruary 22, 2012 No Comments
GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. – Feb. 22, 2012 – For businesses and organizations that want the power of business intelligence and performance management without the complexity of traditional implementations, CIBER has created three new integrated packaged solutions that consolidate multiple Oracle software packages into single plug-and-play solutions.
CIBER now offers integrated packaged solutions for Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) and Oracle Business Intelligence Applications (OBIA), Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) and Higher Education Analytics. Each pre-configured, patched and integrated solution comes with a prebuilt data extraction layer, data warehouse, as well as dashboards, reports and KPIs (key performance indicators). This enables users to start exploring delivered analytic content as soon as installation is complete – typically in a matter of hours.
All three integrated solutions include installations of Oracle Essbase, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Database 11g and Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Release 18.104.22.168. The Oracle BI packaged solution includes Oracle BI Applications Release 22.214.171.124, Informatica PowerCenter and Oracle Data Integrator to give users visibility into data associated with financial systems, human resources, project analytics, procurement and spend, and supply chain. This turnkey solution offers the kind of decision-making support one expects from top-tier BI software, plus it is scalable and customizable to leverage Oracle BI investments or third-party data sources that companies may already have in place.
CIBER’s integrated packaged solution for Oracle EPM includes Oracle EPM System Release 11.1.2, Oracle Data Integrator and Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Release 126.96.36.199. Using this integrated solution, workers can easily access and analyze financial management and performance data as well as planning and budgeting capabilities. It delivers reporting capabilities that track and present historical, current and forward-looking information in easy-to-digest formats.
For the higher education market, CIBER has added Oracle’s PeopleSoft EPM 9.1 Data Warehouses for Campus Solutions, Human Resources, and Financials, as well as Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Release 188.8.131.52, thereby empowering users to make better decisions, analyze causes when there is a gap between performance and goals, update plans to meet market conditions, meet enrollment projections, maximize funding opportunities, elevate student performance and more.
All of the integrated packaged solutions can replicate and scale in environments in hours instead of weeks or months, thereby helping to decrease installation time and expense. At the same time, the plug-and-play functionality of the integrated packaged solutions allows users to get acquainted with the power of analytics immediately. This in turn helps enable them to better envision how best to model their analytic solution and easily identify requirements for phase-two, in-house development projects.
“Many clients see the value and benefits of business analytics, but have been reluctant to commit the time, effort and resources required for a traditional installation,” said Dennis Kause, CIBER’s Business Intelligence practice director. “These integrated packaged solutions take the pain out of BI installations and replace it with a robust, ready-to-go package that delivers almost instantaneous value.”
