We understand the challenges you face.

Platforms for Information Technology Teams

An organization driven by analytics needs a platform that can deliver fast, reliable data and easy-to-use analytics. IT teams want cutting-edge technology and well-trained staff to move, transform, and deliver that data easily, efficiently, and securely. We can help you harness that power and deliver and analyze the data your organization needs.

Optimize Your Data

You've invested a lot in your data - we leverage that investment to enable enterprise-wide access to secure, integrated data. A well-designed system improves performance, ensures stability, and reduces downtimes. Our training minimizes technical support issues and builds self-sufficient teams.

Minimize Time Lost to Technical Issues

Technical issues and downtimes arise when data architecture is not well-formed. We can guide you in setting up an architecture that is flexible, scalable, and maintainable while avoiding common problems and pitfalls. When issues arise, we can get you back on track and identify root causes to prevent future problems.

Fine-Tune Your Data Architecture and Cutting-Edge Analytics Systems

We can fine-tune your data architecture to ensure speed and reliability now, while building in the flexibility to keep you on the cutting edge as analytics systems and business requirements evolve. With our deep knowledge and Oracle connections, we know the direction that analytics software is headed and can lead you to systems that will grow with your needs.

Empower Users With Quality Training

We demystify analytics software so your users feel comfortable building their own dashboards and reports. By teaching people how to think analytically, we empower them to find the insights they seek from their data, and we free up IT teams to focus on higher-level tasks like building and maintaining the architecture and enhancing data security and governance.

Work We've Done

Case Study: Bowie State University

Bowie State University ( is the oldest HBCU in Maryland and part of the University System of Maryland. With an enrollment of over 6,300 students and offering 28 undergraduate, 20 Master’s, and 3 doctoral programs, Bowie State generates and collects a wide variety of student data, from enrollment to retention to graduation and beyond.

Case Study: Rosendin Electric

Rosendin had recently begun migrating from Oracle Business Intelligence (OBIEE) to OAC and had high expectations for their new system but were finding it difficult to get timely, quality results from it. At Oracle’s suggestion, they reached out to Vlamis and we identified root problems with the way OAC was being implemented. By taking a different approach to the implementation and capitalizing on OAC’s Data Visualization interface, we were able to demonstrate the true value of OAC to them.

Case Study: Sacramento County 311 Connect Analytic Reporting

Sacramento County, centrally located in the state of California, provides a 311 Connect service to help with non-emergency issues for residents in unincorporated parts of the county. The service requests result in mountains of data to report and analyze – including a Monthly Customer Service Report that Sacramento County wanted to redo using Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC).

Introduction to Oracle Analytics

This course teaches attendees about the incredibly broad range of capabilities in Oracle Analytics, from data exploration using the latest visual analytic tools to machine learning and from data modeling to classic dashboard design. You’ll see business use cases and learn when to use which part of Oracle Analytics. You’ll learn about self-service data connections and uploads, creating and modifying your own data mashups, blending your data with archived data sources, and enriching data sets with automated intelligence. You’ll see how to leverage maps and location-based analytics at the push of a button and see how easy it is to deploy your work to rich mobile applications. Expect an information-packed session where you can get your questions answered and get guidance from real-world experts who have trained thousands of users in enterprise analytics implementations.

Target audience:

BI Managers and administrators, data analysts, content creators, and general users


Oracle Analytics and OBIEE Repository and Security (BI Admin tool)

This course explores the development of the Oracle Metadata Repository (RPD) using the Oracle BI Administration tool. The metadata repository is a “single-source of truth” data model that federates data from multiple data sources and secures the data against unauthorized access. The repository also defines dimensional structures and logical subject areas to present the data to report developers and report consumers using easily understood, organization-specific vocabulary and terminology.

In this classroom-style presentation, students are introduced to the various components of the Oracle Analytics architecture, then create an Oracle Analytics repository, starting with importing data sources into the Physical Layer, continuing with the transformation of that data into a Business Model, and finally creating the user-visible Presentation Layer. Students will learn techniques such as creating dimensions and hierarchies, creating time-series data (such as month-ago or year-to-date), using aggregate tables and repository variables, and modeling security.

You’ll also learn how to create variables, custom calculations, level-based aggregations, and other advanced data modeling techniques.

Target audience:

  • DBAs and data architects who will be participating in the design and deployment of data models for an Oracle Analytics or OBIEE system.  
  • Developers who will be responsible for building the Oracle Analytics or OBIEE metadata repository.

Oracle Data Integrator

This course introduces participants to Oracle's ELT (Extract, Load, Transform) tool known as Oracle Data Integrator. ODI is a powerful data manipulation tool appropriate for organizations of all sizes and types. It is used to programmatically pull data from primary sources and load it into other locations and formats such as a data warehouse (autonomous or regular), cloud data storage, or a defined data store. You’ll learn all about writing workflows, performing transformations, creating variables and triggers, and automating database procedures.

In this course, students will learn about Oracle Data Integrator through hands-on activities.

Target audience:

  •         DBAs and data architects.  
  •         Developers looking to use ODI instead of custom-built data transformation scripts

Design Is Why April’s Oracle ACE Adventure Was the Perfect Start to an Amazing Week

Being a part of the Oracle ACE program has been one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had in my professional career. As a community, we’re passionate about technology in general, and Oracle’s specifically, and how we can share what we’ve learned and give back to our community. However, one of the best aspects of the program is that it recognizes that personal growth is not limited to a singular realm or outlook.
