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.

Wdesk

Wdesk is great for companies in which several employees or departments touch filing data simultaneously. If you want to have one set of data for your 10-Qs, 10-Ks, press releases, and proxy statements, and you want your Reporting, Legal, HR, and Internal Relations teams to be able to access all of it at the same time, Wdesk is a GREAT product. To maximize the program's capabilities, you'll want to take advantage of the linking functionality with your source data (that's what we're ensuring is happening in the periods between our filings). If you're in a company that only has one or two people on your reporting team, and those employees don't have the time to properly set up links using the source data, this program could be overwhelming.

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.

Wdesk

  • Incredible support from Workiva and always bringing news and improving the product through community feedback.
  • I think the product is easy to use, has a friendly interface and we feel safe to use it.
  • Quick business vision and improved decision making with the help of software with real-time reports.
  • Exceptional support service, very fast and they help you with everything you need and are super helpful.

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.

Wdesk

  • Limitations to spreadsheet formulas
  • Basic design (User Interface)
  • Works slow sometimes

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.

Once implemented, it is a great tool that allows for improved efficiency, eliminating the need for having your accountants act as full-time format experts. We used to roll forward financial statements and quarterly reports manually from quarter to quarter, and if there were ever any changes that led to a text box going to the next page, it would take hours overtime just getting it back to normal, and Wdesk accounts for those changes and automatically adjusts for us.

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 would rate it 9 because their quality of support has been good by far. I haven't faced any issues when I've contacted their customer support.

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.

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.

We moved from a third party filer to doing it in house. Have seen demos of products like Active Disclosure, which has come a long way from the beta version I saw and but we are not too far gone with Wdesk for us to evaluate other products.When we first signed up with Webfilings, (former name of Workiva), there were no viable products in the market. I had seen an Oracle product and a beta version of Active Disclosure. It was not hard to see the ease and intuitive-screens, to guide one through the filing process. The excel-like spreadsheets were an added bonus.

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

Wdesk

  • We spend less than we used to with a traditional printer.
  • We have been able to do turn-on-a-dime equity offerings with last minute changes and still file on time.
  • Inviting external legal into the platform has helped with communication but we actually suspect they spend MORE time (and billing) on our documents than they used to just simply because it's so easy to get at them anytime they want.
