Is Essbase Cloud the future for you?

Essbase Cloud (Now stand-alone previously in OAC) is used internally and at clients for a variety of analysis. From financials to sales to marketing. It allows us to quickly do analysis, find trends and create actionable decisions. We can create reports, and dashboards from the data to allow the executives to make better informed decisions and get a quick detailed analysis and forecast of the information.
  • Hybrid cubes allow for quick aggregation of data so users don't have to wait for calculations to occur
  • Embedded Drill to both on-prem and Cloud sources. This allows us to extend the analysis and provide greater research capabilities.
  • Sandboxing allows for quick efficient what-if analysis without a ton of data replication.
  • It is lacking an internal scheduler so external schedulers must be used in automation.
  • The outline editor does not allow for some of the on-prem functionality like copying hierarchies between cubes using cut and paste.
We use it often during close processes to allow the accountants to see how the process is going, what entries might be missing. We also use it heavily for sales analysis to see how we are doing and to forecast where we expect to be.

Essbase Cloud is Good

Essbase Cloud is being used as a Enterprise Performance Management Solution to handle the company financials, planning, forecast and budgeting purposes. It is being used across various departments like Finance, Planners, and Sourcing. Essbase is very useful for users who love Excel as it is interfaced via Oracle Smartview installed on Excel. Essbase also provides a multidimensional OLAP database which helps in faster generation of enterprise reports.
  • Essbase uses Excel as a user interface, which in itself is user-friendly.
  • Essbase as a multidimensional database is a very fast querying engine to generate reports faster.
  • Essbase provides a user write back feature for users to input data via Excel.
  • Essbase Cloud is a Sequel of its on prem version. For Essbase developers used to Essbase on prem, the interface can be much more user-friendly. Essbase on prem users are used to classic interfaces like EAS which will be missed.
  • The migration from Essbase on prem to Essbase on cloud can be made much more seamless.
Essbase Cloud has new features where users can spin up their own Essbase database from Excel (with some prior knowledge of Essbase). This is a very exciting feature for users with an appetite of learning and doing something more.

Essbase can perform various business calculations and operations faster than other tools available in the market.

Transition to Oracle Essbase Cloud

Score 8 out of 10

Essbase Cloud is being used to replace our on-prem Essbase system which caters to many functional areas including finance, planning, sourcing, HR, etc. It is being used for reporting purposes at both the granular level and executive level. It solves the analytical, reporting, and what-if scenarios. Planners also use it for data input and scenario analysis.
  • No on-prem maintenance
  • Performance is better than on-prem
  • Drill through capabilities
  • The transition of on-prem to cloud
  • Support could be better
Essbase Cloud is well suited for data analytics. It could be better at providing more user-friendly reports, charts, and graphs report integration. Would like the capability to drill through more robustly with various databases not only limited to Oracle databases. Essbase Cloud is well suited for a medium level of tech-savvy users.
