Clariba Launches Expert Business Intelligence Training

Clariba, a leader in end-to-end Business Intelligence (BI) consultancy and SAP BusinessObjects services and solutions, recently launched an enhanced training program, to fill a knowledge gap in the market. Following extensive research, Clariba 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. Clariba has been training end-users of  SAP BusinessObjects for over seven years. Within the past year, Clariba has expanded both their training portfolio and their customer base in Europe, Middle East, Africa and North America.

Three key factors contributed to Clariba’s 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 SAP BusinessObjects implementation and allows companies to develop a network of internal gurus for their BI Competency Centre. Clariba SAP BusinessObjects training addresses the full range of education needs for everyone from BI developers to system administrators to end users. 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 , Marc Haberland, CEO and Managing Partner of Clariba.

Clariba 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.

Georges Mouannes of Qatar Telecom in Doha, Qatar affirms, “The common training approach always presents a challenge as it is perceived as theory. The intelligent approach of Clariba completely changed this perception as the team who attended our three-day training received on the job coaching. The experienced trainer covered the SAP BusinessObjects topics in a very short time, concentrating on weak areas and enhancing the good skills. The training was so successful that the team was able to implement quick wins in daily operations and we had to start scheduling trainings for other team members the very next day.”

Clariba has a variety of training options for groups of users within the same company. Courses are offered at the customer’s office based on their schedule.
