How To Work with the Oracle BI & EPM Sales Teams

If you could see into the future, you could obviously do rather well.

To help us do just that, specifically in terms of us collaborating as Partner and Oracle Sales teams, it really helps if we can get visibility of each other’s sales forecast and pipeline. We all get many benefits from this to help us coordinate scarce resource on key deals, to ensure we anticipate skills needed to ensure client success, and to efficiently go to market in a joined up way.  We can also work more effectively in joint marketing initiatives, such as the "Test Drives", by tracking the sales leads we get together.

You of course can additionally benefit from referral fees, our rebate programme and help protect your resell pipeline. Even if you do not plan to resell, registering your “co-selling” opportunities puts you consistently in front of the Oracle sales teams as a pro-active partner; highlighting your profile to maximise sales collaboration. We call this the “Open Market Model” (OMM).

For example if you need to get access to an Exalytic system for a pilot / proof-of-concept for one of your clients, then we need this opportunity to be flagged up in our sales forecast by you to “create a registration” by submitting this as a new opportunity in the Global PRM portal.

So, make the most of being a Specialised BI/EPM Partner by registering all of your OMM opportunities as soon as possible, both re-sell and co-sell, using the global Partner Relationship Management (Global PRM) system. Already have access? - then login to Global PRM and select “Create Registration” to submit a new opportunity.

If you are new to the Open Market Model (OMM), it is a comprehensive OPN channel engagement strategy designed to provide you with maximum opportunities to earn revenues with Oracle: see here for more on how to register leads with Oracle.

BI Applications Test Drive: Joint Partner+Oracle Go To Market Initiatives

 A challenge you may be facing is how to easily show the business value of BI to a set of customers.  The key we find to achieve this is to show best in class business analytic examples specific to a business person's role and needs - e.g. "HR analytics" for HR professionals, "Spend Analytics" for procurement professionals, and so on.

We have created for you, our specialised partners, the ability to run Oracle BI Applications Test Drive Workshops for your customers.

These are carefully scripted to allow a customer business person (usually not IT) to navigate for themselves around a series of dashboards and analysis targetted to show how BI can help their business and drive ROI.

These Oracle BI Applications Test Drive kits (in English) are now downloadable from our OMS4P/OPN portal . See it by clicking on this link:
http://www.oracle.com/partners/secure/marketing/bi-apps-test-drive-519829.html

This kit translation into Italian, French, Spanish and German will be added to this portal soon.

NOTE: These are not designed for "training" customers: they really address the need for an effective call to action for any customer you talk to who is in the early stages of exploring their options and the business benefits of a BI project, especially if they are already an Oracle applications customer (eBusiness suite, Peoplesoft, Siebel, JDE).
