BI in the real world – ClearPeaks presents challenges and solutions at 2014 Dubai Innovation Day


The Middle East, and especially UAE, is arguably one of the most dynamic areas in terms of Business Intelligence growth, where BI maturity is rising fast and so are the efforts by local companies to implement their BI platforms in a successful way. What are the most common pitfalls and challenges to overcome, and the key success factors to consider before starting your BI journey? Gianluca Nacci, our MEA Practice Manager, explained to over 200 attendees how to lead a BI project to succeed at yesterday’s Oracle Innovation Day event in the Meydan IMAX Theatre.

After an overview of the common characteristics of BI projects in the Region, Gianluca highlighted how tight cooperation between Business and IT, a rigorous project start checklist and approaching upgrade-consolidation-migration projects in the right way are the key to a successful BI implementation.

BI Projects are Business-driven, IT-executed” he claimed while showcasing examples from some of our BI success stories from UAE, where engaging the Business and obtaining their sponsorship while ensuring commitment and support from IT proved to be the winning combination, particularly when the challenge is regaining momentum to the project – and user confidence - after the failure of earlier implementations.


What are the relevant actions to take before embarking in a BI endeavor? Investing time in creating a proper roadmap, budgeting properly and getting the key players’ buy-in will transform into significant savings in project time and costs. Gianluca showed how a Global Business Analysis exercise before the implementation kick-off paved the way to a successful delivery at one of our customers.

Multiple BI tools, several data sources, legacy data marts, redundancy of information, no simple way to consolidate and manage master data: a familiar scenario for local companies where Business Intelligence has been spread wide but without a scalable plan. Gianluca and ClearPeaks demonstrated with a case study how it is possible to streamline and consolidate the technical and functional reporting capabilities in a single Oracle BI instance, lowering TCO and establishing a single version of the truth for all relevant company data.

Whether you are well into your BI journey or about to take off, choosing the right implementer is key. At ClearPeaks we can look back on a wide range of successful BI projects across EMEA, from End-to-End deployments to rescuing failed implementations. We make sure the right steps are taken so your BI investment achieves the expected ROI. If you already have a BI project in place and have some unresolved issues you can count on our Support Services, or get a BI Health Check to find out about possible improvements of the current situation.

At Dubai innovation day we could again prove that everyone is aware of the benefit a BI system brings to a company, and we are proud to provide this service with our full commitment and passion.

ClearPeaks at the Oracle Business Analytics Summit 2014


orscle business analytics summit

What happens when Oracle invites hundreds of business professionals to get together in the center of London to talk about the latest BI trends? Can anyone still afford to drive a business without having all the data available, real-time and on their mobile device? At yesterday's annual Business Analytics Summit, the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel was buzzing with excitement. With over 500 attendees there is no doubt that businesses have realized the importance of BI, and they can't get enough of it. ClearPeaks was sponsoring the event, with over 14 years of experience as a BI specialist and Oracle partner we didn't want to miss out on the opportunity to meet our UK community.


Not a single seat was left in the speaker’s room, especially when Sir Clive Woodward, Head Coach of England's World Cup winning rugby team and Team GB's Director of Sport for the London 2012 Olympic Games highlighted the many similarities between sports and business analytics. In his customer presentation he talked about the importance to be willing to learn and that any team member should be able to use analytics to take day to day decisions.

Looking at the results of the Endeca software monitoring the Twitter #BASummit for the day we have absolute proof of the overall mood and main topics people were talking about. Tweets started at 8a.m. when all the stands were built up and culminated at around 11a.m., right after Sir Clive Woodward's' presentation. In the top topics and word clouds we can see the positive atmosphere that was perceived during the whole day. Great day, great individuals and great teams are the key topics that proof the overall positive sentiment and the impact of the speakers. The tag clouds show a strong trend towards BI. The benefit the technology brings to companies and the high ROI have clearly reached not only the global players, but also to middle-and small-sized companies. If you want to know how Endeca's sentiment analysis on Twitter works, read our blog post about Endeca on Twitter on the example of a FCBarcelona football game.




ClearPeaks at Tech13


Last week we exhibited our services at TECH13, an event organised by the UK Oracle User Group at Manchester Central Convention Complex. Because of the high participation during the last years, the organization decided to split the usual gathering into APPS and TECH. For three days over 200 speakers showed presentations about APEX, Business Intelligence, Databases, Engineered Systems, SOA & BPM, Operating Systems and many more technical topics which were attended by over 1.000 delegates.

The breaks between keynotes gave us time to meet and greet old and new colleagues from the Oracle community at our ClearPeaks stand. Mick Bull, who recently joined our UK team as new sales director, is a well-known face among the Oracle community and presented our services to the delegates.

Highlight was the Tuesday event at the National Football Museum where we enjoyed food, drinks and Christmas mood with other exhibitors. If you don’t know the museum yet, it’s definitely worth a visit.

Congratulations to the UKOUG team, everything was taken care of and we are looking forward to the next time. If you haven’t been there and want to know more about our services contact us here.



ClearPeaks event at the chamber of commerce Barcelona


Yesterday ClearPeaks presented the visual analytics tool Tableau to over 50 professionals in the center of Barcelona. We chose the Cambra de Comerç, a modern business center which provided the ideal venue for our networking morning.

We were happy to welcome companies from e-commerce, retail, consulting, entertainment, editorial, real estate and other businesses to tell them about our service and the advantages of visual analytics. Our goal was to present a more convenient solution for creating visual dashboards.

Tableau is a software which is easy to use and allows the user to be more self-sufficient (from IT) than usually. The price for licenses is quite attractive and it´s very suitable for middle sized and small companies.

We brought the presentation to life with a demo of a Spanish e-commerce site, showing sales and traffic on the site per region and hour. It was astonishing how easy it was to create new dashboards with different filters to allow a detailed analysis of marketing campaigns.

Afterwards we enjoyed a networking coffee discussing about technical details and software integration. Questions raised during the event can be found on Twitter with #clearpeaksccb. Join us next time or give us a call for further information about visual analytics.

Español: Evento ClearPeaks en la Camara de Comercio de Barcelona

ClearPeaks presentó la herramienta de analítica visual Tableau a más de 50 profesionales en el centro de Barcelona. Elegimos la cámara de comercio, un moderno centro de negocios ideal para nuestra mañana de networking.

Estamos muy contentos de haber dado la bienvenida a empresas de sectores como e-commerce, retail, consultoría, cultura, editorial, inmobiliaria, entre otros; y haber tenido el placer de presentar las ventajas de las herramientas de analítica visual y los servicios que ponemos a disposición para el buen uso de estas. Nuestro objetivo fue el de presentar una solución que creemos de las más convenientes e innovadoras para la creación de cuadros de mando visuales (dashboards).

Tableau es un software muy fácil de usar, permite al usuario ser más auto-suficiente (independiente de IT) de lo habitual. El precio de las licencias es muy atractivo, siendo además muy adecuado para PYMES.

Con el ejemplo de una empresa de comercio electrónico demostramos las posibilidades de la herramienta. Mediante distintos gráficos pudimos visualizar las ventas y el tráfico en el sitio por región y hora. Fue asombroso ver lo fácil que era crear nuevos cuadros de mando con diferentes filtros para poder realizar un análisis detallado de las campañas de marketing.

Al final de la mañana disfrutamos de un café, discutiendo sobre los detalles técnicos y la integración de software. Las preguntas que surgieron durante el evento se pueden encontrar en Twitter en #clearpeaksccb. 

 Te invitamos a asistir la próxima vez, o llámenos para obtener más información sobre las herramientas de Visual Analytics.
