Hyperion has made our budgeting process and forecast analysis easy and robust, and it is a reliable tool. Primarily, we are using Hyperion for our budgeting analysis and to complete our whole budget cycle within the EPM application. We take... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It secures our sensitive data because it's security-enabled and is reliable with it's back-ups, migrations and restoration methodology. We can do LCM exports and import into target servers and applications. You can back up everything.... more»

What is most valuable?

As a developer, I would say that the repository itself is the most valuable feature since I can easily get information and change the behavior of Planning and Essbase. For businesses, the ability to create forecasts in a fraction of time it... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It provides faster and more assertive forecast cycles. It enables businesses to improve their process since with this tool you can do things easier and quicker as the business can create more complex models than were possible before.

What needs improvement?

The security could be improved, as it would be good to have security by attributing dimensions. It also needs more power for conditional formats to disable or enable read/write in the forms based on more conditions, not just changing colors.... more»

Hyperion Subject Matter Expert at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
Jul 27 2016

What is most valuable?

The ease of use and the integration with our business are the most valuable features. We require less IT support, so the business and functional people can do more and more of the work they want to do.

How has it helped my organization?

I think they are going to have a better, faster, cheaper close process and BI. From a reporting standpoint, it won’t be pure BI.

What needs improvement?

What is most valuable?

We used another product that was Excel based previously, but Planning is more on the web and lightweight, so you don’t have to worry about the Excel versions. It’s also centrally managed.

What needs improvement?

How has it helped my organization?

In finance, if you have a central repository feeding all of your downstream systems of the metadata that you use, you reduce the number of account reconciliations and report reconciliations that you have to do. It also gives you data quality.

What needs improvement?

I think that Oracle in general is moving towards cloud technology to remove some of the costs associated with, for example, the EPM suite. The EPM suite, as its capabilities increase, requires upgrading your servers and keeping up with the... more»
