EL SEGUNDO, CA--(Marketwired - December 09, 2015) - Kaleo Software, an enterprise cloud platform for capturing and sharing employee expertise and Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced it has achieved Oracle Validated Integration of the Kaleo platform with Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.1. The integration enables users to access Kaleo's knowledge and expertise-sharing application directly from within the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne suite, providing instant and scalable expert application support. By uniting Kaleo with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, customers can provide users with verified answers to their questions about the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne application as well as share details on new features and functionality from JD Edwards consultants and certified experts -- accelerating product adoption and streamlining communication during upgrades and implementation.
Kaleo Software was founded in 2012 to activate knowledge and expertise-sharing in the workplace, as well as improve upon traditional knowledge management solutions which currently have low adoption and usage. Kaleo connects employees with bite-sized, contextual subject matter knowledge from their organization's internal experts within technology platforms anytime, anywhere. Organizations like Dell, Randstad, Lennar and Viacom use Kaleo to ensure consistent workforce knowledge and scale expertise across the enterprise so employees can contribute their best, most accurate work.
To achieve Oracle Validated Integration, Oracle partners are required to meet a stringent set of requirements that are based on the needs and priorities of the customers. As part of the integration, the Kaleo widget launches directly within JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.1, and is pre-configured with answers to a wide range of training, application and process-related questions, reducing the need for training and helping customers amplify their investment right away. Using the integration helps reduces the amount of time internal experts and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne consultants spend answering redundant questions, since the entire user base has access to an expert's answer within Kaleo.
Kaleo's reporting functionality also helps customers identify larger training needs so they can fill knowledge gaps, minimizing the disruption to the business and helping to reduce load on a customer's technical support center.
"We are proud to achieve the Oracle Validated Integration for Kaleo and Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, and we are eager to continue helping customers achieve stronger, faster product adoption through our expertise-sharing platform," said Phil Hui-Bon-Hoa, founder and CEO, Kaleo. "Using Kaleo within other technologies like JD Edwards EnterpriseOne streamlines the user's support experience along their learning curve and helps to create an information culture among employees that is both trustworthy and transparent."
"Achieving Oracle Validated Integration gives our customers confidence that the integration between Kaleo and Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.1 is functionally sound and performs as tested," said Kevin O'Brien, senior director, ISV and SaaS Strategy, Oracle. "For solutions deployed on-premise, in the cloud, or both, Oracle Validated Integration applies a rigorous technical review and test process that helps to reduce deployment risk and improves the user experience of the partner's integrated offering."
