of Oracle Services
TECHcelerate consultants have extensive experience providing technical
and functional consulting services for the following application releases:
10.7, 10.7 NCA, 11.0.3, 11i and R12. We leverage our extensive industry,
product and practical experience to guide management and project team
members through efficient implementations of Oracle's applications.
All implementations require technical services to complete a successful
transition from one system to another. Invariably customers have 1) integration
requirements to third party applications or legacy systems, 2) some volume
of data they prefer to convert electronically and 3) additional reporting
and forms requirements that extend beyond those delivered with the system.
TECHcelerate consultants are well versed at assisting clients with
Companies planning enterprise implementations today strive to implement
the software in its standard form. However, from time to time requirements
extend beyond the scope of the standard system. When this situation arises
we custom develop the required solutions following Oracle's standard development
practices to minimize upgrade implications downstream. Customizations,
as a rule, are built external to the core system. We leverage our experience
with the following tools to accomplish these projects for our customers:
Oracle PL/SQL and SQL, JSP and PL/SQL Web Applications, Stored Procedures
ADF, TOAD and Visual Basic.
In today's real time enterprise it is important to be able to convert
data into useful information for informed decision making. TECHcelerate
consultants are equipped to train administrators and users alike on the
full spectrum of report writing and analytic tools available from Oracle
including: Discoverer, DBI, OBIEE, Hyperion, Seibel Analytics, Oracle
Reports and Portal.
Whether you are migrating from a standard or highly customized instance
of the Oracle System, our technical and functional consulting teams are
equipped to provide expert assistance with this process. The technical
team is adept at installing the new environment, running the comparative
scripts to determine the differences in structure and completing the mapping
exercise to assure the integrity of the data conversion effort. The functional
team meanwhile possesses a thorough understanding of the new capabilities
being introduced in the new release and prepares the education curriculum
necessary to train users on the net new functionality. Our apps/tech consultants
are also responsible for performing the necessary regression testing to
assure that functionality which worked previously, still works.
Oracle’s next generation Fusion Applications are being designed to unify
best-of-business capabilities from all Oracle Applications in a complete
suite delivered on Oracle's open technology. Whether you are planning
to implement the available components of Oracle’s Fusion Platform today,
or would like to ensure that you are taking the appropriate actions today
in preparation for a transition later, TECHcelerate can guide you
through this strategic process. There is much to consider when mapping
out your plans for transition to Fusion. Through effective planning and
implementation strategies TECHcelerate consultants can show you
how to easily extend and evolve your architectures instead of replacing
existing investments by leveraging Oracle’s SOA Suite's hot-pluggable
components. Oracle Fusion Middleware's hot-pluggable capabilities enables
customers to "drop & deploy" various Oracle Fusion Middleware
products into their existing IT environments. Spanning from industry-leading
business process management and development tools to best-of-breed identity
management and application server technology, hot-pluggable Oracle Fusion
Middleware gives customers more choices, long-term flexibility, and better
use of their current technology investment.
Tier I systems like Oracle offer customers a tremendous amount of functionality
and flexibility. What we have discovered through experience is that many
companies only deploy or exploit a fraction of the functional and technical
capabilities available to them. The reason for this can be attributed
to a number of factors, the most common of which is a general lack of
understanding of the full capabilities of the system. To address this
situation we have developed a service which analyzes a company's strategic
business goals and present use of the system, and compares it against
the full extent of the system's capability and results in a recommendation
defining the opportunities which exist for increased productivity.
In order to accomplish a successful transition from one system to another
you have to know how your business runs in your current system, how it
is going to run in the new system, and how you are going to keep it running
with you are in the transition. The process you use to navigate your organization
through the transition period will quickly determine whether you are a
victim or leader of your implementation and whether or not you realize
the strategic goals of your ERP investment. TECHcelerate consultants
are expert at interpreting the customer’s current environment, communicating
to the organization the alternative business processes available within
Oracle applications, explaining the pros and cons associated with each
option and ultimately guiding the implementation team through a successful
Effective project planning and management turns expectations into reality.
From day one, the customer expectations of organizational benefits should
be "projectized", or translated into the detailed project plan
that incrementally works toward goal attainment. Throughout the implementation,
project management tools and techniques will be deployed to measure the
project milestones against the predetermined success factors to keep the
project on target to meet all strategic business goals through the additional
functionality from the new software.
Whether you're a business executive looking for better ways to manage
risk, a finance manager tasked with regulatory compliance, or an IT Director
managing multiple project requests, Oracle delivers a comprehensive platform
for governance, risk, and compliance. Given increased scrutiny from customers,
regulators, auditors, investors, and partners, organizations need to monitor
critical application access and configurations. Undetected changes to
Oracle applications can impact the reliability of data and impact the
flow of business activities. TECHcelerate consultants are experienced
in end-to-end support for cross-industry and industry-specific GRC processes
and can assist your organization in putting in place the proper policies
and procedures to ensure compliance.
TECHcelerate has developed a full curriculum of on-site training
encompassing Oracle's entire application suite. The benefits associated
with conduction on-site training are numerous and include 1) the customer's
own date is used, thereby creating a familiar environment which increases
the overall effectives of the training, 2) the training materials are
tailored and unique to the customer's environment and 3) classes can be
flexibly scheduled to maintain the integrity of the project plan.
This service is intended to address the needs of the IT professional(s)
supporting the Oracle Application system. Experience has taught us that
simply being a certified Oracle Database Administrator does not necessarily
equip oneself with the knowledge required to effectively support an Oracle
Application environment. For instance, this individual must possess at
least a baseline understanding of how the application layer of the solution
is interrelating with the database layer. Therefore, this service is designed
to provide the IT professional with an understanding of fundamental administrative
responsibilities including, but not limited to: administering roles and
responsibilities, security, backup procedures, disaster recovery procedures,
patch maintenance, application and database tuning, workflow and alert
administration, database moves, copies, extents and restores.
Considering an upgrade to 11g? Let us guide you through the process. Oracle
Database 11g, building on Oracle's unique ability to deliver Grid Computing,
give Oracle customers the agility to respond faster to changing business
conditions, gain competitive advantage through technology innovation,
and reduce costs. With Oracle Database 11g you can 1) adopt new technology
faster with Real Application Testing, 2) manage more data for less with
advanced compression and partitioning, 3) simplify systems by storing
all your data in the Oracle Database with Oracle Secure Files, 4) maximize
the ROI of disaster recovery resources with Oracle Active Data Guard and
5) free critical personnel for strategic tasks with management automation.
From time to time our customers request that we provide foundation training
involving the basic concepts which underlay ERP systems. This training
is recommended for those users who have not been previously exposed to
the benefits that can be realized through the implementation of an ERP
system, exhibit anxiety about the pending transition, or require a refresher
level course on the basic principles of ERP.
This service is intended for the client that prefers to support their
own servers internally, but wants to outsource the administrative responsibilities
associated with supporting the Oracle Applications and Database. For clients
who express and interest in considering this model we have aligned ourselves
with a number of local partners who are capable of providing this service
at a competitive price.
This option has become an increasingly popular service for companies who
are resource constrained and prefer to channel their available intellectual
capital toward the development of their own core competencies as opposed
to burdening valuable internal resources with the support of the system.
This strategy allows a company to avoid having to invest in costly hardware
and a high priced support staff as full responsibility for administration
of the system is transferred to Oracle hosting service known as On Demand.
It is quite common today for companies to complete a Return on Investment
(ROI) analysis before committing the funds necessary to support the investment
of a new enterprise system. TECHcelerate consultants are skilled
at assisting clients though the process of compiling the metrics necessary
to make an informed decision.
Companies today are focused on the development of their own core competencies.
The majority typically don't have the time, bandwith or resources available
to remain current with respect to which enterprise software systems are
leading the market. Recognizing the opportunity, we introduced a selection
practice designed to assist companies through what is typically a very
involved process. The service includes a detailed analysis of the company's
requirements, preparation of a baseline requirements document, a demo
script depicting key business processes that must be proven out during
the demonstration process, and a Request for Proposal (RFP) document which
can be used to solicit responses from interested vendors.
