BOSTON - September 10, 2020 - MindStream Analytics (MindStream), a leading enterprise performance management advisory firm, is pleased to announce that
Principal Consultant Celvin Kattookaran has been awarded again the title of Oracle ACE Director. Oracle ACE Directors are top-tier community members who
engage closely with Oracle and they have a track record of major contributions to the Oracle community.
As Oracle's flagship advocacy program for recognizing Oracle evangelist and enthusiast, the ACE Program was founded in 2003 as a way to honor and reward
members of the Oracle technology and application communities for their contributions, as well as help Oracle make its products more efficient and
effective. Members of the program are technologically adept and eager to share their knowledge and experience.
According to Oracle, ACE Director qualifications include a track record of major contributions to the community, technical and/or community-oriented;
exceptional communication skills; a reputation in the community as a thought leader in their area of expertise; and the ability to commit to
participation in an honorary capacity for 12 months.
With over 15 years of experience in Business Intelligence and Enterprise Performance Management, Celvin has developed creative and practical business
solutions to address clients' challenges. Having worked extensively with the Hyperion Suite of products gathering requirements, interacting
with clients, managing development team, design analysis, implementation, and support across many industries, he is experienced with Hyperion Essbase
(ASO & BSO), Hyperion Planning, PBCS, and Enterprise Planning Groovy rules. He is a prolific sharer of ideas via his blog and conferences. Celvin
has created multiple utilities for Essbase, Planning, and Shared Services that he has shared through his blog posts for free.
"Becoming an ACE Director is a difficult and arduous task; many apply, few succeed. Celvin has succeeded twice, proof that his contributions to
the Oracle community are of outstanding and rare quality," says Alexander Ladd, CEO of MindStream. Planning Practice Director
Cameron Lackpour adds, "Celvin's conference presentations and blogs are amongst the most advanced in their field and yet are easily accessible
to all because when covering the why and how of sophisticated technical techniques he bases them in a practical business context. This freely
given value he has provided to the Oracle community is why he is an ACE Director."
