We are honoured to announce that Rittman Mead have been nominated in 5 categories for the UKOUG Partner of the Year Awards. We have been nominated in:
- Business Intelligence Partner of the Year
- Training Partner of the Year
- Managed Services (Outsourcing & Operations) Partner of the year
- Emerging (New Products) Partner of the Year
- Engineered Systems Partner of the Year
We believe these awards should be a recognition of both the services we provide to our customers, and to information and thought leader we provide to the wider community through activities like the blog and conference presentations. These awards are voted for by Oracle end users and community members.
The fact that we have been nominated in 5 awards hopefully shows the growth of the company and moreover the growth in the significance of data, analytics and Business Intelligence to companies as a whole.
Below is a little bit of information about the categories and what we have been doing in each to get nominated. If you’d like to vote please click here.
Business Intelligence is our core competency, which we have won three times in the last five years. We pride ourselves in our deep technical ability, delivery methodology, though leadership and knowledge sharing.
Ever since we started the company training has been at it’s heart. We have trained hundreds of people in the Business Intelligence and Data Integration community, both in paid-for bootcamp style courses, and in workshops, labs, and various sessions at conferences and other similar events.
We believe our blog is one of the key sources of OBIEE knowledge globally, pretty much everyone we meet in the industry has used it at some point in their career.
Last year we put significant focus and investment into creating a global services team with the goal of providing different levels of business as usual and post implementation support to our clients.
The type of services include operational continuity/business relevance, expert advisory, engineered systems (Exalytics) and a virtual Business Intelligence Competency Centre (BICC).
Emerging (New Products)
Rittman Mead has always looked to balance its skills across Oracle’s core Business Intelligence and Data Integration tools and the bleeding edge ones. The last 12 to 18 months has seen a significant change in the landscape of these tools, especially with the advent of Big Data and Oracle’s acquisition of Endeca.
Rittman Mead implemented the first post-acquisition UK-based Endeca project, are running the first Real Time Decisions (RTD) project of this Oracle fiscal year, and have done a significant amount of work with R, including a pioneering study of the New York transit system.
Rittman Mead has been at the forefront of the Business Intelligence Engineered Systems (Exalytics) wave. Since its announcement at 2011 Oracle Open World, we ordered the first Exalytics server to be bought in the UK. Since then we have been working with Oracle and several of our customers to fully understand it and work out how to maximise its benefits to clients of all sizes.
Awards like this are great recognition for all the hard work our team put in, so I would ask you to register your vote here.
