Part 1 - What is all this stuff? - Why Integrate OBIEE, Essbase, and Hyperion?
 
08:49
http://www.kpipartners.com/webinar-why-integrate-obiee-essbase-hyperion/ ... While business intelligence (BI) is meant to serve the purpose of managing the analysis of day-to-day transactional activity, enterprise performance management (EPM) is summary analysis that provides forward-thinking predictive and what-if analysis.

Join Mark Joslin (KPI Partners) & Sid Goel for this virtual event that will help you understand the benefits of developing a complete strategic vision for enterprise performance management and business intelligence.

Our panelists will explore: • What is all this stuff (OBIEE, Essbase, Hyperion)? • Differences Between BI & EPM • Why Integrate BI & EPM? • Integration Case Studies • Integration Demo • Q&A Guests: Mark Joslin, Sr. Director, KPI Partners Sid Goel, Partner, KPI Partners

http://www.kpipartners.com/webinar-Drive-Insight-From-Unstructured-Data-With-Endeca There is significant growth of unstructured data being created by consumers and businesses alike, however unstructured forms of data that can be found in sources such as email, social networks and even health records can make it more difficult to organize, manage and analyze the data. 

 As a result, this has created a need for companies to seek a solution to explore and analyze both structured and unstructured data.

A few examples of this type of data are email, documents, presentations, web content and social media. Due to the explosion and proliferation of the internet and social media, unstructured data is growing exponentially -- and companies are looking for better ways to manage this data. 

 Join experts from Oracle and KPI Partners for this virtual event that will help us all understand how there can be joint analysis complex structured and unstructured data. Our panelists will explore: 

Common challenges with structured & unstructured data What is Endeca & How does does it fit into the Oracle BI landscape? What does Endeca mean to me as a customer? Customer Case Studies / Success Stories Q&A

Webinar: Bookings, Billings, and Backlog (BBB) Analysis with Oracle BI - Part 2 - Demo
 
23:11
http://www.kpipartners.com From a KPI educational webinar that takes a deep dive into how a Bookings, Billings and Backlog analytic solution from Oracle can improve your organization's cash flow and customer satisfaction. Bookings, Billings and Backlog (BBB) analysis is a key component to reducing Order-to-Cash cycle time. By analyzing bookings, shipping performance and billings, organizations can quickly gain insight into areas that may serve as an opportunity for improvement. For example, by applying an analytic solution that focused on backlogs and return reasons, a Fortune 500 company quickly identified quick-wins to improve customer satisfaction. There are a number of reasons why organizations struggle with Bookings, Billings and Backlog analysis: - Data is distributed disparately across multiple functional areas - Order Management, Account Receivables & Inventory Management. This distribution of data can prevent holistic reporting. - "Why?" and "How?" analysis is not easy. - Comparative analysis of Bookings, Billings and Backlog data with historical trend data is not possible.

http://www.kpipartners.com/webinar-why-integrate-obiee-essbase-hyperion/ ... While business intelligence (BI) is meant to serve the purpose of managing the analysis of day-to-day transactional activity, enterprise performance management (EPM) is summary analysis that provides forward-thinking predictive and what-if analysis. 

The average organization maintains BI (OBIEE) & EPM (Essbase, Hyperion) in separate silos with little to no interaction. The most exceptional enterprises are now combining BI with EPM to provide the best of both worlds and have moved from reactive to proactive decision making. 

Join Mark Joslin (KPI Partners) & Sid Goel for this virtual event that will help you understand the benefits of developing a complete strategic vision for enterprise performance management and business intelligence.

Our panelists will explore: • What is all this stuff (OBIEE, Essbase, Hyperion)? • Differences Between BI & EPM • Why Integrate BI & EPM? • Integration Case Studies • Integration Demo • Q&A Guests: Mark Joslin, Sr. Director, KPI Partners Sid Goel, Partner, KPI Partners

Transform Data Into Insight
 
00:54
http://www.kpipartners.com - So, your global enterprise has collected some data. And I'm not talking small data, like a couple of spreadsheets, I'm talking big data, like mountains of point-of-sale transactions, video feeds, website statistics, social media posts, image metadata, and more. Not gigabytes or terabytes but exabytes of data. How do you start to make sense of all this raw data? Well, you could just take a sample of the data and process it with the resources you already have.... But, you would only have visibility into that small sample in which to make important decisions. That's were KPI comes in. They create tools for companies to easily analyze their big data to get quick insights. In short KPI transforms data into insight.

Drive Insight From Unstructured Data With Endeca - Part 1
 
04:22
http://www.kpipartners.com/webinar-Drive-Insight-From-Unstructured-Data-With-Endeca There is significant growth of unstructured data being created by consumers and businesses alike, however unstructured forms of data that can be found in sources such as email, social networks and even health records can make it more difficult to organize, manage and analyze the data. 

 As a result, this has created a need for companies to seek a solution to explore and analyze both structured and unstructured data. 

 What is Unstructured Data? 

 Unstructured data has no pre-defined data model and/or does not fit well into relational tables. Typically, there is no identifiable structure -- it is text-heavy and generally in free form text. A few examples of this type of data are email, documents, presentations, web content and social media. Due to the explosion and proliferation of the internet and social media, unstructured data is growing exponentially -- and companies are looking for better ways to manage this data. 

 Join experts from Oracle and KPI Partners for this virtual event that will help us all understand how there can be joint analysis complex structured and unstructured data. Our panelists will explore: 

Common challenges with structured & unstructured data What is Endeca & How does does it fit into the Oracle BI landscape? What does Endeca mean to me as a customer? Customer Case Studies / Success Stories Q&A

Get access to this recording from our live webcast featuring Illeana Gonzales and Richard Paley from Royal Caribbean on the challenges they had building an onboard analytics solution for all the ships in their fleet. Richard and Illeana showed attendees the progression from a proof-of-concept in OBIEE 10g to production dashboards in OBIEE 11g. Royal Caribbean is already experiencing anecdotal return-on-investment (ROI) with their business intelligence solution because they are able to modify onboard marketing activities to specific demographics. For example, if beverage revenue is lacking on a particular voyage, management can now identify this deficiency quickly and tailor promotions around a particular brand of beer (Molson) that has historically appealed a segment of guests on-board based on their country of origin (Canada).

Previously a Brio customer, Agilysys sought a new, robust BI platform that easily integrated with Oracle EBS, required minimal development time and delivered a platform for future growth. Agilysys selected Oracle BI Applications and engaged KPI Partners to deployed Oracle BI Financial Analytics within three months. The first phase was rolled out to upper and mid-level management, and financial analysts. The solution delivered financial sales analysis: Financial and Operational point of view ; Sales, Cost, Profit (actual and budget); By Business Unit, Sales Group, Sales Rep, Manufacturer, Customer, Supplier; and Tax data. Among the benefits achieved, Agilysy eliminated several legacy reports, made gre! at strides toward its goal of a single point of truth, and delivered timely and accurate information to business users daily.
