NYLS plans to utilize Oracle’s Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) to help streamline reporting functions and improve decision-making

“It was critical to NYLS that this migration project was completed on time and on budget. We are very pleased with Velaris and our partnership,”

Velaris, a leading Professional Services organization dedicated exclusively to Business Intelligence consulting, announces its newest client, New York Law School. With over 15 years of experience in BI consulting and hundreds of engagements with top-tier commercial, government, and higher education clients, Velaris was selected by NYLS to help them migrate from their current Hyperion release v8 to EPM 11.

“It was critical to NYLS that this migration project was completed on time and on budget. We are very pleased with Velaris and our partnership,” said Rosa Milla, Director of Enterprise Applications at New York Law School. “Their experience brought best practices to the engagement, making the process run smoothly. It truly exceeded our expectations. We are very happy to be up and running on EPM 11 so quickly and are very excited about the value it will bring to our organization.”

The project was executed in less than four weeks using Velaris’ proven migration methodology. The process included a needs assessment of all end-user groups and a complete review of NYLS’ current and future architectures. Once the strategy was agreed upon, Velaris executed the migration and trained the technical staff.

“It is critical to Velaris that we position our customers for continued success,” said Doug Scheidig, Senior Manager at Velaris. “As part of the migration experience, we offer our clients two months of Velaris Support Services beginning after the go live date to ensure adoption of the new technology.”

Velaris Support Services were developed for Oracle/Hyperion BI clients to assist with the support and administration of a constantly evolving BI environment. As clients migrate from Version 8 to System 9 or 11 and eventually to Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Plus (OBIEE+), many do not have in-house resources with the experience and skill set required to maintain the new environment. Velaris provides a support team with the necessary skill set at a fraction of the investment of adding additional head-count or an onsite consultant.

The project with NYLS marks the sixth Higher Education institution that has engaged with Velaris in the past 12 months. As Higher Education continues to deal with budget constraints, they are searching for new and innovative ways to achieve their goals. Velaris’ services offering provides cost-effective and flexible options that help institutions advance their technology environments during challenging times.

Velaris provides Business Intelligence consulting services for commercial, government, and higher education clients. Leveraging more than 15 years’ experience as a leading IT consulting organization, Velaris has established partnerships with top BI vendors and led hundreds of engagements with top-tier organizations. Velaris delivers a comprehensive suite of capabilities that help clients migrate to new product releases, effectively maintain and administer their system, create more sophisticated reports, and provide end-user training.

Velaris has implemented over 200 data warehouses, created over 10,000 reports for more than 50,000 users, and has trained over 20,000 users in the last 10 years. Velaris is committed to client satisfaction, with a focus on exceeding client expectations and building long-term relationships. Velaris has delivered an annual repeat business rate of 94% for over 15 years.
