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.

CEA is well suited for small and rapidly growing companies where manually calculating commissions expense for ASC606 is not an option due to a lack of internal resources. CEA is less appropriate for larger companies that have the resources and likely a person, or people, who only focus on commissions.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Go into implementation knowing how you will handle churn, if there are claw backs, treatment for every type of commission payment (i.e. new business, renewals, etc.) and know your average customer life. You'll also want details by customer for as far back as you can go (within reason).

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.
