Press release: BROOMFIELD, Colorado, and CLEVELAND, Ohio – Datavail, a leading provider of managed services for database management, analytics, and application life cycle management, today announced the acquisition of AdvancedEPM Consulting, an Oracle Platinum Partner focused on Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) solutions.
The acquisition of AdvancedEPM is part of Datavail’s growth strategy to build on Datavail’s core capabilities in data and application operation and integration. AdvancedEPM’s expertise in Oracle application cloud implementation and customization will be combined with Datavail’s expertise to create an end-to-end application life cycle offering to support the Oracle EPM solution stack.
As a Platinum-level member of the Oracle® PartnerNetwork and an Oracle Accelerate solution provider, AdvancedEPM has extensive, hands-on application expertise, deep functional knowledge, and integrated technical skills across Oracle’s Enterprise Performance Management product suite.

The toolbox is designed to help system administrators be more efficient and productive by providing pre-built utilities and scripts.
“AdvancedEPM is one of the leaders in helping companies leverage Oracle’s cloud-based planning and budgeting solutions, and has some of the most experienced consultants in the Oracle Hyperion space,” said Scott Frock, COO of Datavail. “We are excited to add them to the ever-growing Datavail team as part of our Oracle services expansion.”

Todd Rebner, Founder & CEO of AdvancedEPM, will remain with the organization to head Datavail’s EPM Practice. “I am excited to be able to combine the strength of AdvancedEPM consultants with Datavail’s support platform to fill a gap in the market for full-service Enterprise Performance Management services,” said Rebner. “The nimbleness of AdvancedEPM in helping customers quickly and efficiently implement EPM solutions will be strengthened by Datavail’s mature managed service capability.”
