Oracle Hyperion

Well suited: For use in multiple offices around the world. I was able to obtain financial reporting data from 5 foreign offices and then consolidate their data with 3 domestic USA offices to prepare a consolidated financial statement.Less Appropriate: Translating the financial value for consulting services could be a bit challenging because that required human interaction and judgement. It would have been great to be able to set up some software to be able to interpret this and let it run for all future project work revenue projection.

SAP Analytics Cloud

SAP Analytics Cloud is great for collaborative planning. It allows users to work together on plans, discuss specific adjustments, and to create planning processes for other users to follow. Its BI capabilities also make it stand out among the competition, and it's possible to create a very customized, user-friendly planning experience.

Pros

Oracle Hyperion

  • This product handles budgeting by Employee and/or Position very well. It is highly flexible and allows Hyperion administrators the ability to develop a planning application that fits a variety of different business needs.
  • It is great at calculating benefits using business rules to automate the population of these fringe costs in the overall budget planning process. This greatly reduces user error.
  • It allows you to seed the operating budget based on changes to key drivers, such as percentage increases, flat dollar increases and more detailed changes using business rules.
  • Allows visibility into the plans for each unit across the organization, rolled up into an overall budget for the campus.
  • It handles the creation of budgets with multiple chartfield segments or dimensions, which most other budgeting systems cannot handle well. It can aggregate these very quickly.

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Functional desing. Easy to learn and develop
  • Live connectivity to SAP sources so the data is not needed to be in the cloud (important for some business for data privacity)
  • SAC is working in different functionalities
  • SAC is growing in a scheduled way so you can know which roadmap will be the following months
  • Easy SSO with SAP sources

Cons

Oracle Hyperion

  • One pain point for us is the consolidation and translation process. Needing to translate the data over and over again is frustrating and there is no visibility into how many users are running a translation. If multiple users attempt to translate the same data set, say goodbye to your performance but you have no way of knowing! (Unless you want to pull up a task audit which is not a very realistic expectation). It has the been the quickest way for us to bring the system to it's knees. The consolidation process performs in direct correlation to the complexity of the calculation/consolidation rules. So, while the product is extremely flexible, you still have to be careful how you design your rules and calculations to make sure that you do it on the smallest subset of data as possible to avoid large processing times. This makes sense, but requires some significant expertise that most organizations do not have in-house.
  • The Hyperion Financial Reporting product is ridiculously outdated and clunky to use. The interface for designing reports is not intuitive, and not easy to modify once a report is built. I think there must be a strategic decision to move away from it and go to something more like Oracle BI because I just can't understand why in the world they don't update the reporting product. It also requires a significant level of expertise to be able to use. Not a great solution at all if you want multiple end-users to create reports in something other than Excel. Nobody except the HFM admin (which I used to be) in our company even touches this module.
  • Another pain point is the amount of IT support that is required to run this thing, and again, specialized knowledge of Hyperion products and how they work is required for IT to adequately support it. This goes for application servers and the Oracle database that the applications are running on.

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Performance: in some scenarios, the tool has big troubles in its performance when the volume of data is quite big (mainly with tables and filters).
  • Maturity: as it is a quite new tool, it is not mature enough to satisfy some business necessities. Also, the tool has some bugs which should be basic for a reporting tool.
  • Mobility: I believe mobile apps for SAP Analytics Cloud should be improved (both for Android and iOs devices). They are not as good as the web version. Moreover, stories for mobile devices have to be created in a particular template, which can be annoying in some cases.

We're in the middle of the road because we are not sure that other products on the market fit the bill for what we need yet. Hyperion is expensive and burdensome from an administrator and maintenance standpoint, but it still seems to be the best solution for what we need. Show us an equally capable SaaS consolidation product and we'll talk again.

The premium support team provides much needed dedicated customer service which we are after for what we have paid for this service. We are satisfied with the service and support and do not have any instance where there was an issue that requires escalation to get the right support team. Though the incidence of major issues that requires the premium support are less, we prefer to keep this as a safety net.

SAC support allows you to ensure that your company has the specialized support during and after implementation, which means that your company will not stop its operations due to the operation of the system, since, in case of doubts or problems with the system , the team of experts will solve them in the shortest possible time.
Continuous support is very important, since it allows to obtain the maximum performance of the solution and to obtain a balance between the functionality, the performance of the tool and an efficient support service.
SAP has a specialized team dedicated exclusively to providing advice to support staff and end users, solving technical and operational problems and providing support in the additional requirements is an added value for your business that gives way to continuous improvement and maximum use of the system.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Hyperion

I use Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Mangement because the company I work at requires me to use it in the Financial Planning sector as most of their data is stored in it. I am open minded and ready to use other performance management tools created by Oracle if my work permits.
Ricky Bhatia | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Analytics Cloud

This tool does not match up to its competitors like microstrategy and Tableau when it comes to data visualization. It takes more time and effort creating dashboards and building schema objects in this tool. It is not as easy to learn as other competitive tools. Implementation is also not as smooth as other data visualization tools and platforms available on the market. Creating ad-hoc reports is not as quick and easy compared to its competitors.

Return on Investment

Oracle Hyperion

  • Oracle Hyperion allows us to automate and consolidate financial data that used to be performed manually in spreadsheets. From that perspective the ROI is huge.
  • Oracle Hyperion functionality is extensive and allows us to perform most functions for planning, consolidating and reporting on our financial data.
  • One negative with Oracle Hyperion is that it is complicated to implement and maintain. It takes expertise at all levels (infrastructure and management) to realize the benefits from it.

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Multiple SAP sources can be connected into one software.
  • No lag time with data or analytics. Crucial for our real estate market which is always changing.
  • The only negative ROI would be the training and steep learning curve we had to invest in this.
