Pros and Cons

  • Smart View allows accountants to create their own reports easily.
  • Reports are dynamically refreshed after the month-end close.
  • Allows flexible reporting using alternative account hierarchy.
  • Our implementation consultant set up all the business rules for calculations to get us live, and we may have difficulty setting up new ones going forward. We feel like that we now need to hire someone who has the technical knowledge to help us to manage the system going forward.

Pros and Cons

  • Easy to use.
  • Strong calculation engine.
  • Centralized platform on the cloud.
  • Functionality issues are common with updates that can cause issues in the system . Need better and clearer communication on changes and impacts.
  • The move to groovy is at best questionable. Need to understand why Oracle is moving in a direction where a programming language that is not universally used is part of this major offering.

Pros and Cons

  • The tasks lists and workflow work well for managing activity.
  • The amount configuration that you can add allows personalisation.
  • Give you extra cubes to rebuild the EPBCS ones that don't fit.
  • Business rules.
  • Ability to create positions for HCM.
  • Connectivity to OACS fails, brings down EPM pod.
  • Ability to copy cubes between versions of the pods instead of all cubes.
  • Come with integrations to the rest of Oracle.
  • Secondary dimension sends 6000 emails when the workflow is turned on. This should not happen. Should be able to disable notifications.
  • BSO cube fails to return results.

Pros and Cons

  • Different model plans for management needs - for OPEX and revenue, we need to build different models to meet the needs of our company. EPM cloud is good at this and meets our needs for creating these models.
  • One global plan and integration with other cloud-like Oracle HCM for plans - reduces the manual effort of getting the data and activating information.
  • Easy to use application.
  • More simple integrations needed.
  • Simple SSO needed to access - We need to have two-factor authentication.

Pros and Cons

  • Fast performance. Compared to Oracle EPM Cloud's competitors, we had no problems whatsoever in quickly connecting to the Cloud.
  • User-friendly interface. Navigation is intuitive, and users don't have to shoot in the dark to find settings.
  • Customizable and flexible to an enterprise needs. We have yet to need any external plugins/add-ons for our use cases.
  • Customer support is poor. I and many of my colleagues have had awful experiences repeatedly for trying to get someone on the line for assistance.
  • Abundance of software bugs. EPM Cloud is close, but not quite at the level of maturity. Much time was wasted trying to figure out whether a problem was with the software or our own configuration setup.
  • Repetition and redundancy when filling out forms. I have had to cut-paste the same information multiple times for some steps in the transaction entry forms.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.
  • Core HFM functionality on Cloud is not yet on par. We use lot of custom dimensions and it is restricted at the moment.
  • Data Management on Cloud is not yet on par with FDMEE on premise.

Pros and Cons

  • Data integrity
  • Cloud integration - high availability and locally implemented instances that provide a custom feel
  • Systematic and customized capture of vital information
  • Does not necessarily require a dedicated administrator
  • Menus are not always intuitive.
  • When errors occur it is not always easy to pinpoint where the errors are coming from.
  • Customization is always a challenge with many products. Stock reports and operational financial information needs to be a priority during the implementation phase, so that a fully functioning finance department is not debilitated once live.

Pros and Cons

  • Offers platform to connect with other Oracle cloud users. Great reference/ platform to ask questions to other users
  • monthly patches ensures that we can take advantages of the most updated functionalities
  • Communication & responses from Oracle product developers on Customer connect makes me feel like they take customer feedback seriously
  • Sometimes to do an action in the application takes too many clicks. (ie: adding a new employee in workforce )THis has been feedback from our user group.
  • some features not compatible with MS edge (ie: expansion of reports doesn't work in edge), which is becoming a common browser & is now the only supported browser at our company.
  • Alot of the times will get an error page when trying to hit the URL & will need to hit the browser refresh button to get the splash page to properly load

Pros and Cons

  • The user interface is friendly.
  • Good reporting of reconciliation status.
  • The application was relatively easy to set up and use.
  • The auto-reconciliation feature could use some work.
  • It would be great if there was some direct integration to EBS R12+ on-premise without the requirement to pull data via FDMEE.

Pros and Cons

  • Task Manager in EPBCS helped out business users to track the planning and budgeting process.
  • EPBCS Driver based solution was a total win for us. We didn't have do much of a customization work.
  • Smart view reporting met the users adhoc reporting needs.
  • We have just started using it. After couple of cycles we will be able to add the missing functionality.
