Overall Satisfaction with Oracle EPM Cloud

I am helping my client move from on-prem to Cloud EPBCS with guidance to adopt as many of the out of the box frameworks as possible.
  • Reliability
  • Ease of use
  • Consistency with prior product to enhance user adoption
  • More flexibility within the frameworks
  • Transparency in performance optimization
  • More flexible migration options to exclude cubes in prod.
We offer a wide spectrum of big picture visioning to take full advantage of the possibilities for each client. We use cross functional and expanded scope to solve issues we uncover by asking questions and listening.
Clients typically push back a little when you start talking about scope expansion for a project due to budget constraints, but successful delivery will demonstrate the power of proper implementation and a “what else can we improve” attitude.
There were some difficulties but Oracle has proven to be a reliable partner that will help us deliver and keep promises of improvement.
  • Reduction in development time
  • Easier access via http
  • Reliable consistent service
  • Constantly improving performance and features
Yes - I am a member of the ODTUG and Ohio Oracle User Group.

They keep the conversation going with clients and peers and encourage self improvement.
  • SAP BPC (Business Planning and Consolidation)
It’s been a long time since I’ve developed this product. While it was more Excel based and therefore accounting friendly, it’s really been eclipsed by Oracle in every way.
I would strongly recommend migration to the Cloud for new customers, existing customers that can adapt to the frameworks, and clients with flexibility in improving the way they use the product for peak performance.
