Modeling with sandboxing and predictive analytics features

Companies today are faced with a rapidly changing business environment. Demand is volatile, costs fluctuate and the supplier landscape is constantly changing. A key requirement to stay ahead of the competition is to quickly understand this volatility and model for these financial and operational changes, based on rapidly changing assumptions.

The Oracle Planning and Budgeting cloud service provides sophisticated modeling and predictive analytics capabilities that allow users to create multiple functions. “What if” versions and slice-and-dice data based on various what-if assumptions.

The Oracle Enterprise Planning and Budgeting cloud service also has a rolling forecast wizard that makes it easy to implement a driver-based rolling forecast process. The time horizon of the forecast continues constantly over the months you specify, beyond the individual years and is limited only by the end of the year.

Overview of the Enterprise Planning modules


The business planning modules include complete planning and budgeting solutions for finance, human resources, capital and projects. These business processes include predefined best practice content such as input forms, calculations, dashboards, drivers and key performance indicators (KPIs). Input forms can be integrated into dashboards and reports that dynamically reflect your data, plans, and forecasts.

Financials (Financials – Module)
The Financials solution provides integrated driver-based planning for income statement, balance sheet and cash flow. With out-of-the-box tools such as KPIs, drivers, and accounts, you can create reports faster. You can also use financials data to perform expense and revenue planning.

Personnel (Workforce – Module)
The Workforce solution enables workforce and compensation planning to link financial plans to the workforce plan. You can budget future headcount and related personnel costs such as salary, benefits and taxes.

Projects (Projects – Module)
The Projects solution bridges the gap between project planning systems and the financial planning process. It allows you to assess the impact of organizational projects and initiatives on overall resources to ensure they are in line with your short- and long-term financial goals.

Capital (Capital – Module)
The capital solution allows you to plan the long-term impact of capital assets on financial plans to manage, prioritize and schedule capital costs.

Strategic Modeling
(Strategic Modeling – Module)
The Strategic Modeling solution combines a comprehensive set of financial forecasting and modeling capabilities with integrated scenario analysis and modeling capabilities for long-term strategic planning. It enables you to check structural changes in the company – e.g. the merger of two business units or changes in the product structure – and their effects on certain KPIs – e.g. sales or costs – in advance.
