Presentation Title: Spend Visibility Rapidly Deployed in the Cloud
Speaker: Mr James Pilbeam
Company: Enrich
Presentation abstract: A typical deployment of Oracle Procurement & Spend Analytics (P&SA) with ETL linkage to a source system can take upwards of 6 months. This is a substantial implementation time when compared to niche SaaS BI Vendors who can deploy their spend analytics products in a much shorter space of time.

Enrich has recognised this threat from the market and developed a spend visibility platform that is a stripped down version of P&SA, whilst retaining the core procurement performance functionality of the standard product and still sits on OBIEE framework technology. However, using cloud virtualisation technology we are able to deploy standalone instances in a much shorter space of time that are preconfigured all the way through the OBI technical application stack and through the BI presentation layer, so that all that is required is customer data in order to start using the platform.

This combination of OBI and cloud technology has enabled us to create a product that is rapidly deployable and low cost to compete with the SaaS players in the market.

Enrich will talk about the process in more detail and will run through a live demo of their product offering.
