    It is well suited in a geographically distributed environment where you have various key participants in multiple time zones providing input and necessary explanations on performance and measured success It is less appropriate where you have a single office environment with a single finance department working together. It is also less suited when the GL is NOT an Oracle product and the interface between the GL and the reporting software needs to be implemented with utmost care and handling.

    Oracle

    • The limitation of constrained out of the box dimensions that requires ripping the initial implementation to add the new dimensions is a major drawback.
    • Smartview interface is cumbersome for many.
    • The only financial adapter is available for integration for other modules we have to go with file-based uploads which is cumbersome and not real-time.
    • It is very costly in terms of licensing unlike other Oracle products.

      We have a pretty good userbase who are at the high level who gained value from this tool. Discontinuing this tool is prone to impact their day to day operations. Also the data in this tool cannot alter the source, which maintains the integrity of this tool. Smartview is a cool addition that gained lot of traction as well.

      Needs some work. Support staff seem to be computer people, not accountants or users of the system. Their answers sometimes seem short and computer-based. Not answered in a way that says, "I have thought through this and here is what I see to do."

      Support from our implementation partner is a 10/10, but support from Oracle is awful. Case in point: recently over a 2-day period, there were a series of intermittent outages. Oracle actually asked US for the outage time-stamps. I would have thought that, since we were paying them, they should probably be able to tell us!

      I suggest doubling the time to implement from the initial quote you get from the Sales team. That's always been the case for me for multiple EPMs now. The out-of-the-box functionality of Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud is pretty robust so I appreciate that and it really helped us get the ball rolling quickly.

      The cloud is the way technology is going, so we love migrating from on prem solutions to true cloud-based solutions such as Oracle Cloud EPM. It's very easy to use. We also felt comfortable choosing the solution when reading a previous review around the system being able to have one global plan and integration with other Oracle products for plans which reduces the manual effort of getting the data and activating information.

      • Significantly reduced the amount of money we spent for the maintenance of in-house hardware.
      • We now need less employees to manage the configurations of Oracle EPM Cloud.
      • There have been many time savings as a whole to apply to more productive causes.
