Datavail, a provider of data and DBA services, offering 24×7 managed database services, database design, architecture, and staffing, has acquired Art of BI, an Oracle analytics consulting company focused on OBIEE and Hyperion.
According to Datavail, the acquisition will deepen its expertise in Oracle’s offerings in the BI and analytics space. 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, including what the companies describe as the “first-ever plug-in for Oracle BI.”
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, making the expansion into Hyperion and OBIEE a logical next step, said Scott Frock, COO of Datavail.
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. With Datavail’s foundation of operational support, Art of BI consultants will be able to bring greater value to clients with ongoing support beyond a project implementation, said Screen.
