Hyperion Planning – Optimize your planning and budgeting process
Corporate alignment is difficult to achieve in financial plans due to the separation between the finance office and sales and operating business units. Financial planning and forecasting is often a resource and time consuming process for gathering information spread across a variety of disconnected spreadsheets or point solutions used by the finance office and various sales and operational business units.
Oracle Hyperion’s planning solution provides the flexibility needed for the business planning process by quickly aligning financial plans, models and forecasts across cost centers and business units so decisions can be made at a speed the business demands. The impact of changes to key plant drivers and assumptions can be assessed immediately, and revisions can be made available to all stakeholders instantly, without the reliability risks associated with manual intervention.
The software has built-in time intelligence and assignment logic and comes with a powerful calculation engine that can be used to express a range of business requirements, from simple arithmetic formulas to complex assignments.
Oracle Hyperion Planning provides guided task flows and supports both bottom-up and top-down Agile planning processes. Its robust workflow capabilities support efficient review and approval processes.
Higher planning accuracy through rolling forecasts
Companies today are faced with a rapidly changing business environment. Constantly changing market dynamics can lead to demand, supply and price fluctuations that require decisions based on alternative outcomes. To make informed decisions in such a market, the financial impact of key business drivers must be understood and forecasts must be revised reliably and quickly.
Oracle Hyperion’s planning solution provides sophisticated forecast planning capabilities that can produce reliable statistical forecasts based on time-series data over long periods of time, while capturing seasonal effects, making predictions more reliable.
The planning software also provides planners with spontaneous what-if modeling capabilities to evaluate the impact of different combinations of business assumptions on key financial outcomes. To enable planners to quickly revise business and market impacts on forecasts, Oracle Hyperion’s solution is equipped with rolling forecasting capabilities that make the entire planning process more agile from the start…
