Top Essbase Speaker at Kscope16 is Joe Aultman

Jul 06, 2016
ARLINGTON, TEXAS, July 6, 2016 – Joe Aultman was named Top Essbase Speaker at ODTUG Kscope16, the largest conference in the world for Oracle EPM & BI professionals. As interRel’s Director of Strategic Services, Aultman delivered two sessions at this year’s conference, “It’s a Groovy, Groovy, Groovy, Groovy World: How My Favorite Language is Now Part of My Favorite Tools” and “Torn Between Two Worlds: Is Essbase a Business or an IT Tool?” Aultman’s win makes it six years in a row for interRel as either Glenn Schwartzberg or Edward Roske have won a speaker award every year since Kscope11. ODTUG recognizes the top speakers at Kscope by evaluating responses from attendees during individual sessions.
 
“I’ve been attending Kscope for nine years now, and I love it,” said Aultman. “It has become the absolute highlight of my year. I’ll admit, in the years I’ve presented I’ve felt a flutter of hope when the winners were named. To see my name on the screen this year, to have this pool of experts name me the Top Essbase Speaker, it’s even better than I imagined. Thank you to the ODTUG community for being so awesome and to Oracle for continuing to make Essbase the coolest tech there is.”
 
“Each year, the competition for a Kscope speaker award gets harder. With an amazing list of over 40 talented speakers competing in the Kscope16 Essbase track alone, I’m extremely proud of Joe for winning Top Essbase Speaker,” said interRel CEO Edward Roske and former Kscope Speaker of the Year. “Joe has a unique gift for combining technical expertise with creativity and humor. He is extremely deserving of the award.”
 
interRel achieved several milestones at Kscope16, including participating in 20 sessions overall, more than any other partner at the event, and releasing the first-ever book on Oracle EPRCS, Look Smarter Than You Are with Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud. As the sole Titanium Sponsor, interRel solidified their status as the #1 EPM cloud partner by bringing the Oracle cloud evolution to Chicago with two newly published books, multiple sessions, and a team of industry experts focused on EPM cloud. interRel’s Kscope16 booth was styled in a steampunk theme. Steampunk, a science fiction genre of Victorian Futurism, is the perfect backdrop for a journey through the past, present, and future of business analytics.
 
Aultman and the rest of the interRel team look forward to attending Kscope17 in San Antonio, Texas from June 25-29, 2017.

interRel is the #1 Cloud Partner

Jun 26, 2016
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, June 26, 2016 – interRel is the #1 EPM cloud partner, pioneering the cloud frontier with multiple cloud implementations under its belt. interRel will lead into the cloud at ODTUG Kscope16, the largest conference in the world for Oracle EPM & BI professionals taking place June 26-30 in Chicago, Illinois.
 
As the reigning Oracle EPM & BI Partner of the Year, interRel has multiple completed and 10+ in-progress cloud implementations, including the first-ever EPBCS and FCCS implementations. The company currently has seven packaged EPM cloud offerings under its RApid Cloud Evolution (RACE) solutions, a rapid deployment option of prebuilt application templates to jumpstart implementations. In addition, interRel has the highest number of cloud specialized consultants in the Oracle EPM industry with over 100 cloud specializations (BICS, EPRCS, PBCS) and in 2016, hired its first EPM Cloud Specialist, Opal Apalat. The entire company has been trained on the cloud directly by Oracle and has worked closely with Oracle’s product management team on cloud products. interRel has three Oracle ACE Directors and two Oracle ACE Associates who are partnering with Oracle Development on EPM cloud product innovation. 
 
“It’s amazing how quickly companies are adopting the cloud,” said interRel CEO Edward Roske. “Two years ago, everyone seemed to be in a wait-and-see holding pattern with IT heavily concerned over security and stability. Now companies are switching to the cloud faster than I’ve ever seen and it’s IT departments who are leading the way. At interRel, half of our current, new implementations are on the Oracle Cloud and by the end of the year, I expect that will be over 75%.”
  
 “Oracle announced last week that its Cloud revenues were up 49% for Q4 and up 36% for fiscal year 2016,” said interRel CFO Ali Flint. “We are excited to be keeping pace with Oracle’s cloud strategy and partnering with customers who are the early adopters of this new technology.” Oracle CTO Larry Ellison said the company expects the "hyper-growth" to continue for the next few years. Oracle expects SaaS and PaaS to grow in the 75% to 80% range during Q1 FY17.
 
Passionate about education, interRel has been sharing Oracle EPM cloud knowledge with the world. In 2016, interRel released the first and only Oracle EPM cloud books, Look Smarter Than You Are with Oracle Enterprise Planning Cloud (PBCS) and Look Smarter Than You Are with Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud (EPRCS). At interRel’s EPM & BI solutions roadshows, numerous cloud presentations have been given during free, full-day training events. interRel has delivered multiple cloud webcasts and as part of interRel’s Play it Forward video education platform, 12 cloud videos have been released with many more on the way. interRel looks forward to spreading more EPM cloud knowledge at Kscope16 and will be hosting four cloud-specific sessions: “Navigate the Ever-Expanding Oracle EPM Cloud Landscape,” “Creating an EPM Hurricane: Joining Cloud Solutions Together for a Complete EPM Solution,” “Jumpstarting Your Report Creation with EPRCS,” and “Integrating Hyperion’s Cloud Offerings with Salesforce.com (and other cloud products).”

interRel CEO Edward Roske Earns Degree from Shimer College

May 02, 2016
Edward ShimerArlington, Texas, May 2, 2016 – Concluding a college journey that began in 1990, interRel CEO and cofounder Edward Roske earned his Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies from Shimer College on April 30, 2016. Roske left Shimer more than two decades ago to pursue his entrepreneurial vision and cofounded interRel in 1997. Roske has spent 25 years building a company with a distinct reputation for excellence and education in the Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) and Business Intelligence (BI) industry. Edward himself is an Oracle ACE Director, award winning speaker, and co-author of the “Look Smarter Than You Are” book series. 
 
Roske began his college education at Simon’s Rock of Bard College when he was just 16 years old. He soon transferred to Shimer College, because it “offered an education based on Great Books instead of textbooks,” Roske explains. Shimer’s Great Books curriculum provides that students read primary source books written by masters like Aristotle, Einstein, Freud, Marx, and Tolstoy rather than text books, which are then discussed in classrooms of 12 or fewer students. Edward chose a college that, he says, “taught me how to think, not what to think.”
  
“Before attending Shimer College, I was a shy introvert who couldn’t speak up in a meeting or defend an argument. After Shimer, I was a shy introvert who wasn’t afraid to speak up for what I believe in and I could convince an entire room of people to follow my lead,” said Edward Roske. “Shimer helped put me down the path of becoming a CEO and I could not be more proud to have graduated from Shimer.” 
 
As CEO of interRel, Roske has created a company culture passionate about education. Edward personally charges each employee with the directive to “learn something and pass it on.” The company provides opportunities for all employees to speak publicly, teach, write blogs, contribute to books, and create videos for the company’s free-access video education platform, Play It Forward. Through these channels, interRel educates technology users, business administrators, executive decision makers, and even competitors. 
 
Roske decided to complete his degree about two years ago when he was inducted into Shimer’s Board of Trustees and appointed as Head of the Admissions Committee. That same year, Shimer was named the “Worst Place to Study in America,” according to a ranking by the Washington Monthly. After the standings were released, Jon Ronson of The Guardian determined that while Shimer may be the worst traditional college in America, it may also be the future of education.  Inspired by his reconnection to his alma mater and the public debate about its education philosophy, Edward embarked on a plan to graduate. In addition to taking courses in subjects like game theory, Roske wrote his senior thesis on Eddie and the Consultants: A System 9 Musical, a 2007 musical in which Roske wrote and costarred.
 
Achieving his degree at this stage in his career is a testament to Roske’s long-term commitment to education. “Even though it took me 26 years, I wanted to complete my degree not because anyone ever asks to see my diploma, but because it’s important to finish what you’ve started. Sometimes you have to do something not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard,” Edward explains, paraphrasing JFK.
 
About Shimer College
Shimer College is a small, private, liberal arts college located a few miles from downtown Chicago, Illinois. It was founded in 1853 by Frances Wood Shimer and Cinderella Gregory. Shimer has no more than 12 students per class in order to focus on discussion, not lecturing. Shimer believes in reading original works instead of textbook summaries of the great ideas from classical literature.
