interRel Becomes Oracle Specialized Partner in Business Intelligence Cloud Service

Feb 23, 2016
Arlington, Texas, February 23, 2016 – interRel Consulting has attained Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) Specialization for Business Intelligence Cloud Service (BICS). Oracle awards partners the BICS Specialization status based on achieving expertise in delivering services specifically focused on BICS through competency development, business results, and proven success. interRel, an OPN Specialized Platinum Partner since 2010, is proud to be recognized as an Oracle partner with over 10 Oracle BICS Specialists. Furthermore, interRel has over 15 Oracle Specialists in both PBCS and EPRCS, showing the company’s continued investment in Oracle’s expanding cloud offerings.
 
“While it may sound corny, BICS puts the business back into Business Intelligence,” said Glenn Schwartzberg, Oracle ACE Director and BI Practice Lead at interRel. “By simplifying the interfaces in BICS, business users can load and model their own data. With the power of OBIEE behind BICS and the wizard-driven interfaces, end users quickly become self-sufficient. Data Visualization and mash ups enable users to extend and understand their data in ways they can easily comprehend.”
 
Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service is the industry’s first BI platform in the cloud that makes analytics available to everyone, from the workgroup to the enterprise. BICS empowers users of any skill level and from any department to easily combine data from diverse sources and quickly create rich, interactive analytical applications and reports. Analytics you create in BICS can be immediately available on mobile devices, with no need for additional programming or configuration.
 
“These are exciting times in the area of analytics,” said Wayne Van Sluys, Oracle ACE Associate and senior consultant at interRel. “Oracle BI Cloud Service enables companies to accelerate their reporting and analysis. The cloud allows companies to be more agile in providing insight into their data and BICS makes it easy for the non-IT professional to load and prepare data within the Data Modeler area and then analyze and share their discoveries within the Analyses and Dashboard areas.”
