"It's a tight race every year," said Crystal Walton, ODTUG's Executive Director. "But Edward Roske is always right up there at the top. His presentations, both in content and delivery, are known for being informative and entertaining. Glenn is very well respected for his technical skills in the EPM arena and his presentations at Kscope always draw a large crowd."

With 1,600 attendees, over 300 sessions, and more than 50 ACE and ACE Directors present, Kscope14 was a significant success, providing exceptional teaching and even a bit of fun.

Known for providing outstanding education and amusement, interRel hosted "The Battle in Seattle," a boxing themed duel between Schwartzberg and Roske, where the two experts debated the best "Essbase Optimization Tips." Though Schwartzberg won the competition based on audience applause, the session earned Roske his spot among the Top Five speakers.

"Kscope14 had 300+ sessions and to be awarded one of its top speakers is a rare honor. It's a privilege to be able to educate the audience and provide them information they are looking for. Thank you to all the attendees," stated interRel CEO Edward Roske.

interRel Consulting CEO, Edward Roske, Returns from Big Data Evangelism on Inaugural Oracle Technology Tour

Jun 17, 2014

interRel Consulting's CEO Edward Roske concludes the inaugural Oracle Technology Network Middle East & North Africa Tour, where he was chosen by Oracle as the only Big Data evangelist.

Arlington, Texas, June 17, 2014 - Edward Roske, CEO of interRel Consulting, has concluded the inaugural Oracle Technology Network Middle East & North Africa Tour 2014. Roske was tapped to be the only Big Data evangelist on Oracle's tour, a fitting accolade for the CEO of the longest-standing consulting partner in the world dedicated solely to implementing Oracle EPM/BI solutions to Fortune 500 and mid-sized companies.

"I was honored to be chosen to be part of the first-ever Oracle tour to Africa and the Middle East," Edward Roske stated. "This region is not only a growth area for Oracle, but it may be a market in more need of reporting and analytics than any other in the world."

The Oracle Technology network Middle East & North Africa Tour 2014 marked Oracle's first trips to Africa, the UAE and Saudi Arabia to educate developing markets in Oracle Hyperion EPM. He delivered presentations on Big Data and the potential of unstructured data in Tunisia, Riyadh, Jeddah and Dubai.

"One of interRel's core tenets is that we not only educate ourselves but share what we learn," said Ali Flint, interRel's Business Operations Manager. "Events like the OTN MENA tour allow us to educate markets around the world."

OTN MENA certainly provided the platform for Roske to deliver that education through 50 sessions spread across two continents and three nations. Not only did Roske win attendees over, but he also garnered high praise from other speakers on the whirlwind tour, particularly for his tireless exuberance and in-depth expertise concerning Big Data.

OTN MENA was 100% free for the benefit of local Oracle communities, and lasted from May 26 through June 1. Both the speakers and attendees have hailed this first-of-its-kind event as a huge success.

interRel Has First Consultant Resignation Since 2012

Mar 19, 2014

Arlington, Texas, March 20, 2014 - interRel Consulting is celebrating an unusual event for any company larger than $10 million in revenue: 18 consecutive months of 100% employee retention. This is a monumental achievement in the technology services industry, where attrition is high and consultants are aggressively sought after by competitors.

According to insidebiz.com, employers across the globe are facing an estimated 161.7 million resignations this year, but interRel has not been in the sameMarta Predicament. The company's retention record took hold in 2012 as the economy improved and the company focused on project delivery. No one knew it would begin an 18-month streak, setting what could be the longest known record for any consulting firm in the industry.

Back in September 2012, CEO of interRel, Edward Roske, promised everyone in the company a special t-shirt if they made it to a year with no resignations. When the one year anniversary arrived in September 2013, each employee received a special package with a T-shirt that read "My company went a year with 0 resignations and all I got was this lousy t-shirt (and a $5,000 raise)." Employees started posting pictures on various social media sites displaying their shock and gratitude for such a generous and creative gift.

"Hitting the milestone of one-year is something I couldn't have imagined in my wildest dreams or best case scenario," Roske told employees in a , recorded in September 2013, to affirm that the t-shirts were not a joke. Roske continued, "12 months without anyone in the entire company quitting? The least we could do was give everyone a shirt. We felt that it should be accompanied by a $5,000 raise for every single employee at the company. The loyalty and commitment of our employees is incredible."

interRel wasn't just retaining its employees in the last year, it has also been growing. Since 2012, interRel added 16 new employees across the country of which two are former interRel employees who explored other options but decided interRel was their true fit.

Employees join interRel for the opportunity; stay for the unique culture and to partake in interRel's mission to heavily invest in consultants' career longevity. interRel offers extensive training and mentorship from renowned Oracle Hyperion experts in senior leadership while also encouraging employees to have fun and be creative. From gaming nights of Werewolf to African drum circles, everyone is continually challenged, and rewarded, to think differently. Competitive salaries and benefits are a given.

WellPoint and interRel Win Oracle Excellence Award for Business Analytics

Sep 24, 2013

Oracle OpenWorld, San Francisco, September 24, 2013 - interRel Consulting and WellPoint were awarded the 2013 Oracle Excellence Award for Innovation in Business Analytics (EPM, Exalytics, & Business Intelligence) at the 2013 Oracle OpenWorld conference.  The award was presented to WellPoint's Director of EPM, Jonathon Eastman, and a team of interRel consultants including Jason Novikoff and Ross Schwartzberg.  Matt Bradley, Senior Vice President of EPM Development presented the award at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

Innovation Award ImageThe Oracle Excellence Awards recognizes customers and implementation partners for outstanding, cutting-edge solutions using Oracle Fusion Middleware.  WellPoint and interRel were chosen for WellPoint's implementation of Oracle Essbase 11.1.2.3 on Exalytics.  WellPoint, the largest health insurer in America, is the first company in the world to go live on the 11.1.2.3 Exalytics platform.  The WellPoint business case was selected among 260 submissions for uniqueness of its business case, business benefits, level of impact relative to the size of the organization, complexity and magnitude of implementation, and the originality of architecture.

WellPoint's Exalytics Business Case

WellPoint implemented Exalytics in response to the Affordable Care Act (2010), which imposed many new challenges and opportunities to WellPoint's Financial Accounting, Reporting/BI and Budgeting systems. WellPoint's two primary challenges included integration of multiple acquisitions of billion dollar companies and regulation requirements of Quality Improvement reporting, Risk Corridors, Health Insurance Exchanges and more.  WellPoint's defined business objectives were: 1) compliance with ACA's regulatory requirements using Oracle EPM/BI; 2) integration of acquisitions into the Oracle EPM/BI system; and 3) cost minimization of the implementation.

WellPoint embraced Oracle's new engineered system, Exalytics, by rolling out three Exalytics servers networked with 10G Ethernet to replace the 13 IBM boxes and integrated their Exalytics environment with PeopleSoft Financials 9.0. The implementation reduced the total cost of ownership by 50% with a simpler environment that is faster and easier to maintain.   Performance increased by up to 4-fold and Wellpoint's savings is estimated to be hundreds of thousands of dollars.

interRel CEO and Oracle ACE Director Edward Roske said at the awards ceremony, "We are honored to win this prestigious award alongside WellPoint, a long-standing, distinguished client whose employees consistently strive to make the company an efficient Oracle EPM/BI machine.  WellPoint isn't looking for a senior Hyperion consultant to take direction; they are looking for expertise in defining a long-term strategic solution. It has been an honor to work with WellPoint throughout the years and we look forward to a strong relationship in the future."
