Oracle Analytics Consultancy Deepens Expertise in Hyperion, OBIEE
BROOMFIELD, Colorado – July 25, 2016 – Datavail, North America’s largest provider of managed services for data and database administration, today announced the acquisition of Art of BI, an Oracle analytics consulting company focused on OBIEE and Hyperion.
In addition to consulting expertise, the acquisition brings to Datavail a range of software products that extend the functionality of OBIEE and accelerate the implementation of Hyperion. Its software products include the first-ever plug-in for Oracle BI.
Christian Screen, founder and CEO of Art of BI, which is headquartered in Fort Mill, S.C., will become the leader of Datavail’s Oracle BI practice.
“We’re excited to bring Christian and his team on board to expand and deepen our expertise in Oracle’s offerings in the BI and analytics space,” said Scott Frock, COO of Datavail. “This acquisition aligns with our core vision to be a leader in helping clients manage and leverage their data.”
Datavail manages the databases of some of Oracle’s largest and most complex database installations, and works with those clients for end-to-end support including installation, configuration and managed operational support. Expansion into Hyperion and OBIEE is a logical next step, said Frock.
