IAI’s Oracle Solutions practice delivers proven business and technical expertise to both government agencies and commercial enterprises that rely on Oracle technologies for business advantage. IAI’s Oracle consultants and partners bring over 10 years of experience applying industry best practices in project management, methodology, and technology solutions to Oracle client engagements.
Oracle Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing Solutions
Many organizations today use a variety of Business Intelligence (BI) tools and custom applications to try to collect data from disparate sources, analyze that data, and report on it. A result of this fragmented approach is that it is difficult for organizations to get a unified view of the enterprise – “one view of the truth” – that supports the business decision-making process.
IAI applies proven BI and data warehousing methodologies from Kimball and Inmon to drive its warehouse and data mart designs. IAI consultants and partners are experienced in using Oracle’s Business Intelligence Suite of tools and infrastructure to bring greater business visibility and insight to a broad audience of corporate users. Oracle’s integrated suite of tools share a common service-oriented architecture with the BI Server at its core. IAI is experienced employing the broad set of capabilities of this suite to enable ad-hoc query and analysis, interactive dashboards, and reporting solutions using this unified view of the enterprise data.
Oracle Application Development
Despite years of effort deploying vendor ERP solutions in the enterprise, many organizations find that it is still necessary to augment “one-size-fits-all” software approaches with custom application development. These custom applications often provide the competitive advantage that agencies and corporations seek to meet their business needs.
IAI has successfully provided custom application development solutions since its inception. IAI’s Oracle Solutions team has delivered business value to clients through applying its proven management, methodology, and development skills to augment COTS software implementations. IAI has delivered Oracle custom applications to both public sector and commercial clients using the following Oracle technologies: Oracle Database 8i, 9i, and 10g; Oracle Application Server 9i and 10g; 11g, and Oracle e-Business R12, Oracle Designer, Forms, Reports; and Oracle JDeveloper.
Legacy Application Conversions to Oracle Driven Platforms and Databases
Many organizations today still rely on legacy database technologies to serve their mission-critical transactional data processing requirements. These organizations often need to undertake a phased approach to moving their custom application portfolios to the Oracle platform, specifically to the Oracle database server, in order to save costs and unify their data assets.
As part of its Legacy Modernization Solutions practice, IAI has extensive experience successfully migrating client data housed in legacy database structures, often mainframe-based hierarchical or networked architectures, to relational database servers. IAI’s ICONS methodology and toolset contain components that IAI has used successfully on numerous client engagements to assist in migrating both data and application code to new platforms. IAI’s Oracle Solutions team is experienced in using the ICONS tools to convert legacy data structures to the Oracle RDBMS platform.
