What is most valuable?

Well, the PBCS is almost the same as Hyperion Planning, with the exception that you don't have access to Essbase and to the relational repository. What you got is access to a web page where you can do your development. For me, as a developer,... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The improvement for the organization is the same as it is with Hyperion.

What needs improvement?

I think the biggest improvement would be to have direct access to other CS products you have; for example, that BICS could access directly the PBCS machine to produce dashboards or, better, ODI loading and extract data/metadata using a KM.... more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the Planning forums, the ability to do all sorts of translation, and the ability to move data about with relative ease if the coding isn't too difficult.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see instant dynamic calculations and more out of the box functionality within Planning. I would also like to see a feature with HFM and Planning to move data more frequently and easily. The tuning of the Hyperion Planning applications is not intuitive or well-documented, and that has been a major drawback that was addressed in HFM, but not yet in... more»

What do you think of Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud?

Valuable Features We have labor queues and workforce planning as well as our complete budget and focus for different business areas in the company. It is adding so much value. • Room for Improvement It could be more friendly with Excel. We have big forms with a few thousand rows and columns, which can sometimes cause performance issues. Users sometimes complain when they find that it can take up to a minute to open a big file. That’s the only issue. • Use of Solution We have been using SPS and Planning for ten years. • Stability Issues It is really stable. We have a really big environment with a lot of people working on infrastructure and development, and in the last three years, we haven’t had any time when the system was completely down and a user was not able to...

What is most valuable?

It makes it easy for users to get through and see what they have to do next. There are caveats though, and it’s not all positive. Things happen behind the scenes with the input forms that are riddled with negatives.

What needs improvement?

They could change the current web forms. You can’t stroll seamless down them because they jump. You can’t control F anymore to find something on a large form as well. I don’t like the way they changed the POV and header too. The drop down options to click are gray, as if you aren’t supposed to touch them, but the top bar that you actually are not supposed to... more»

What do you think of Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud?

Valuable Features From a standardized input perspective, we’re very happy with it. • Room for Improvement We are not that happy with how you get information out of the system. I wish we could delete years out of the Planning cube so that we didn't have to keep growing. Also, we would like to see the ability to build dimensions more dynamically. • Use of Solution It's been operational for 6 years. • Stability Issues Planning takes some hand holding since processes have not been automated. Updating dimensions is more manual, so if we could automate that, it would be great. • Scalability Issues Since we can’t delete years out of the Planning cube, the growth is eventually going to create a performance issue. • Customer Service and Technical Support Support from...
