In addition, Inspirage will be discussing their Rapid Value Program which takes a value-based approach to project planning to help customers realize optimal value from Oracle products quickly. The program combines value-based product planning with modular, building block-style installation. The modular approach means flexible solutions tailored to clients’ needs. The Rapid Value approach offers fast installation and ongoing updates as new Oracle product versions are released. The building blocks start with Rapid Value accelerators, the accelerators are used to reduce the timeline and cost of implementations. Then accelerators are brought together into strategic groupings to form Rapid Value modules. Modules are developed for specific business needs. When modules are brought together into Rapid Value Packages they offer a complete OTM solution for both cloud and on-site installations.
