delegates can also opt to participate in an experiential test-drive assessment of the BI analytics system

Crocus Consulting ( a Gold level member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), will be holding a webinar for those seeking greater insight into the power of Oracle BI (Business Intelligence). Following the webinar, those delegates who wish to trial the technology, can take part in an experiential, hands-on assessment of the system at the purpose built Crocus Test-Drive facility in the Midlands.

The webinar which will be held at 2.00 p.m. on March the 8th 2012 will explore the trend of using Business Intelligence as a means of optimizing the enterprise with actionable insight. This ensures that users have the ability to go straight from a dashboard and drill down into the data to manage specific issues; such as transactional anomalies for example. This powerful facility, demonstrates that systems technology has moved beyond mere reporting and into the realms of providing a powerful management tool set that boosts the operational effectiveness of the business.

Crocus will also present an in-depth casestudy of a customer already reaping the rewards of Oracle BI. This will also demonstrate how choosing an effective implementation and support partner can ensure that BI technology delivers maximum ROI to the business using it.

Oracle Business Intelligence (BI) applications, which are used by 82% of the Fortune Global 500 companies are complete, prebuilt BI solutions that deliver intuitive, role-based intelligence throughout an organization. The webinar will highlight how these solutions enable organizations to gain greater insight from a range of data sources and applications including Oracle E Business Suite, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Siebel, and third party systems such as SAP. Oracle Business Intelligence Applications support over a dozen different functional areas with complete, pre-built, best-practice analytics, and a rich set of KPIs, metrics and analytic workflows.

The webinar will also stress that by accessing data from across the enterprise and delivering deep insight directly to business users, Oracle BI applications enable faster and more informed decisions to be made. This helps the organization optimize resources, reduce costs, and improve the effectiveness of front and back-office activities ranging from sales and human resources (HR) through to procurement.

According to Vince Blockley Customer Support Director of Crocus Consulting, “Our webinar will reveal the significant and positive impact that utilising Oracle BI can make to the enterprise. Beyond this, delegates can also opt to participate in an experiential test-drive assessment of the BI analytics system free of charge and without obligation. Our objective is to give a personal, first-hand experience of the product, so that delegates can walk away with the informed ability to review the system’s suitability for their own organisation.”
