Financial and HCM analytics are now taking the spotlight in many organisations as they seek to make more of their data in the current economic climate

Crocus Consulting (www.crocus-consulting.com), a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), has announced the launch of a new Cloud based Test Drive centre for Oracle BI (Business Intelligence) and PeopleSoft applications. The new service, which complements the company’s physical Test Drive Centre, at its Leicester Head Office, enables users to utilise the latest cloud based technology to try out Oracle’s BI Analytics with PeopleSoft Financial and HCM systems. It will also allow those users considering an upgrade to PeopleSoft 9.1 to discover in advance where system and process changes might need to be made. Separate test drive programmes are available for both business management and technical staff.

The new service reflects a significant, long term investment by Crocus with the emphasis firmly placed on ensuring that Test Drive participants have everything they need to make their cloud experience as effective and productive as possible. Commenting on the news, Crocus Consulting’s Managing Director Chris Smith noted, “We are delighted that Crocus can now offer this new Test Drive facility through the cloud. Financial and HCM analytics are now taking the spotlight in many organisations as they seek to make more of their data in the current economic climate. Many companies are in fact re-ordering their processes accordingly to take account of the benefits that Oracle BI can deliver. The beauty of the Test Drive Centre is that it demonstrates first hand just how intuitive using analytics can be with PeopleSoft applications and how it can support the processes they have in place in their own organisations.

“In addition, we are enjoying significant demand from those seeking to upgrade their existing PeopleSoft applications to the latest version. With our new facility in place, users can combine our test-drive facility with their own data to view the upgrade solution in the cloud first. It is, therefore, a great opportunity for both business and technical users to actually try the software by getting their hands on the systems in a real-time, real world environment. We will have a wide range of highly experienced technical people on hand to answer any questions users might have. Given how popular this has been at our physical Test Drive centre, we are confident that demand will be exceptionally high.”
