What do you think of Oracle Hyperion?

Primary Use Case: Our primary use is for Enterprise Performance Management (in most cases), planning and budgeting, and as a reporting/allocation tool. • Improvements to My Organization: We provide customized solutions for finance offices in any industry. • Valuable Features: Oracle has an integrated solution for Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) and Hyperion. It keeps the two platforms opened up to each other. • Room for Improvement: Oracle EPM Cloud solutions have simplified the security model. Nevertheless, it would be better having  a more differentiated security model. • Use of Solution: More than five years. • Other Advice: I have worked for more than seven years with Oracle EPM and Hyperion.

What is most valuable?

One of the HFM features that isn't talked about much that is really useful to accountants is the equity pickup module. Equity pickup is an accounting process where legal entities within a company own all or portions of each other and need to pull their percentage of net income into the investment of the subsidiary. Ultimately, as data is consolidated to total... more»

What needs improvement?

The module is not very appealing to technical users (not a lot of code, simple screen, etc.) but the process is a huge lifesaver for the accountants in the organization.
