Intelenex Pursues Multiple Oracle PartnerNetwork Specializations
Sponsored Video: When he was a corporate CIO, Dave Krauthamer (pictured) focused heavily on CRM, ERP and supply chain projects. So it’s hardly surprising Krauthamer bet his current IT consulting business — Intelenex — on an Oracle partnership. Over the past six years, Intelenex’s business has grown to roughly 120 customers. But Krauthamer isn’t resting on his laurels. Looking ahead, Intelenex is pursuing multiple Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) specializations. Krauthamer describes why in this FastChat video.

The Bigger Picture
Admittedly, some resellers remain wary of Oracle in the channel. After all, Oracle has a massive direct sales force. Still, channel partners like Intelenex and Cloud Creek Systems say they’ve found Oracle to be a reliable long-term partner.
Take a closer look and you’ll find some common threads between the Intelenex and Cloud Creek stories. Both are sophisticated IT consulting shops rather than traditional product resellers. And both companies are going deep in multiple Oracle specializations.
So far that strategy is treating both companies well. Off camera, Krauthamer expressed strong optimism about Intelenex’s business for 2011. And in this FastChat video, Cloud Creek Executive VP Rhos B. Dyke explains how Oracle has directed business his way:
