Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) June 26, 2016
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)."
ODTUG Kscope16 is taking place in Chicago, Illinois from June 26-30, 2016. This conference covers the Oracle EPM & BI world like no other with its unparalleled technical presentations, strategic product direction from Oracle's product management team, business user tracks, deep-dive product labs, and the opportunity to rub shoulders with the best practitioners in the EPM and BI space. You do not want to miss the foremost Hyperion conference of the year with over 150 Oracle EPM/BI-dedicated sessions, 20 of which will be presented (or co-presented) by interRel.
