ClearPeaks Launches Expert Business Intelligence Training Academy

London, UK, November 10, 2009: ClearPeaks, a leader in end-to-end Business Intelligence (BI) consultancy services and solutions, recently launched a new training division, ClearPeaks Academy, to fill a knowledge gap in the market.

Corporations look to Business Intelligence for deeper, accurate, up-to-date understanding of their business in order to minimize guesstimates and risks, streamline processes and reduce costs. Developing a team of internal BI experts and skilled end-users is a key factor in the success and sustainability of any BI investment. Following extensive research, ClearPeaks found that there was a need not only to raise the general level of awareness about Business Intelligence in the corporate world but also to address knowledge gaps within BI-enabled companies.

ClearPeaks has been training end-users of Siebel Analytics, Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition and SAP BusinessObjects for over seven years. Within the past year, ClearPeaks has expanded both their training portfolio and their customer base in Europe, Middle East, Africa and North America.

Three key factors contributed to ClearPeaks' decision to launch an official training division: their proven history of successfully coaching customers and partners, their talented pool of experienced BI consultants and the high demand for end-to-end expert BI training tailored to the needs of the customer.

"Training is an essential part of any successful Business Intelligence implementation and allows companies to develop a network of internal gurus for their BI Competency Centre. ClearPeaks Academy was formed with the full range of education needs in mind. Our mission is to offer more in-depth training than our competitors, with modules that span the complete BI spectrum and delve deeper into the complexity of the subject matter," explains Gordon Cardiff, Partner and Co-founder of ClearPeaks.

ClearPeaks surveyed more than 150 participants during 12 different training sessions in 2008/09 to determine customer satisfaction levels. Participants indicated that they were "extremely satisfied" with both the trainer’s technical knowledge and instructional competency. Additionally, 94% of respondents indicated an interest in attending follow up training sessions.

Will Solomon of the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) in London, UK affirms, "ClearPeaks training was very good for the following reasons: the trainer had a very deep understanding of the subject area, enabling him to answer questions outside of the training scope. We moved quite quickly, but the trainer had time to spend with us individually. The pace was good, the flow was logical. In short it was the most worthwhile and useful course I've been on."

ClearPeaks Academy has a variety of learning tracks for groups of users within the same company. Courses are offered at the customer's office based on their schedule. For more information on ClearPeaks and ClearPeaks Academy, please visit or call +
