Oracle Cloud EPM

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 successIt 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.

Vena is able to streamline our budget reporting process, as we are able to provide standardized reports to different stakeholders with increased accuracy and level of detail. The templating solutions it provides means we can create up to date reports without having to allocate massive amounts of resources, opening us up to client ad-hoc requests and improved analysis.

Pros

Oracle Cloud EPM

  • Account Reconciliation CLoud Services provides tight integration with Oracle R12 and 11i . Provides drillback capability. It is flexible and provides rich functionality to users.
  • We have implemented ARCS on cloud and migrated planning and budgeting from On premise to PBCS and EPBCS. Functionality is onpar with onpremise. Provides regular updates monthly
  • We don't need to upgrades every year and saved a lot on Hardware.
Raju Aenike | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vena Solutions

  • Vena provides all the customizable flexibility and advanced calculation that you can squeeze out of Excel because Excel is used as the front-end. You can tailor the reporting and budget templates to your exact needs and leverage your existing Excel skills.
  • Even though you work in Excel, the data is all controlled by a multi-dimensional cloud database. So your work is safe. Changes are auditable, and nobody has to rely on sharing Excel files between each other and tracking the latest version.
  • Vena's workflow system can be extremely simple if that's what you need. Or you can build some fairly complex process flows for any task.
Aaron Andersen | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Oracle Cloud EPM

  • 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.

  • In Report Books, the option to run reports as PDF would be helpful.
  • In Report Books, the option to add more than one report to the book would be extremely useful. Currently, users receive multiple emails because we can only have one report per book.
  • In Report Books, the ability to output files to a directory rather than sending them via email would be a nice enhancement.

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.

We have been extremely satisfied with the Vena Solutions product and have been able to become more efficient in our budgeting, forecasting and salary planning processes, as well as adding functionality and accuracy that was not possible in the past. Administrators no longer have to keep track manually of each department's budgeted net, but can use a report created in Vena to report this information, as well as see which departments have not yet submitted information. Customer service has always been very responsive as well

One is only limited by their knowledge of Excel functions and basic understanding of database management. One does not need to know VBA, VB, C++ or even SQL.

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!

Technical support helped us with the first setup, guided us through the installation process, and gave us tips for improvement as we progressed through the use. The response was quick and we were treated very kindly, we sincerely felt at ease.

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 Vena consultant had great knowledge of both the Vena solution and Excel and Excel functions. He was able to help suggest ways to build our templates that met our requirements using Excel functions we had not previously considered using. And we have been able to use the Excel information he provided in other ways outside of Vena. He was very patient and flexible as we learned the Vena tool and created templates

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Cloud EPM

Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud fared very well against Adaptive, Anaplan, and Host Analytics. We ultimately decided on Oracle due to its reputation and strength of existing customers. We are happy with our decision.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vena Solutions

The main contender with Vena was Prophix. Most of the other products we looked at were not capable of the complexity we needed. We chose Vena because the Excel templates made it look like the budget we were working with. We were able to use syntax we were familiar with for formulas and achieve the desired results. We knew any product was going to be a challenge but Vena was the appropriate choice for us.

Return on Investment

Oracle Cloud EPM

  • 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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vena Solutions

  • From my observation, we did get a return on investment. We have FP&A tool first and foremost.
  • We are dealing with 1 financial system to get data as suppose to several sources from before.
  • For sure, Vena Solutions helped many finance teams domestically within our company with financial reporting.
