Transplace Oracle EPM Journey – From Basic to Bold with Enterprise Planning
Monday, June 28th | Session Number 11525 | Track: Enterprise Planning | 2:20 PM – 3:20 ET
Transplace, a leading third-party logistics provider in the US and Europe, was an early adopter of Oracle EPM Cloud Planning (PBCS). After going live in the spring of 2015, they quickly realized the benefits of this new platform. They leveraged it successfully for several years before embarking on a business process financial transformation that included a redesign of the chart of accounts. Transplace refined and transformed their legacy PBCS solution to include enhanced revenue, expense, and workforce models and deployed new functionality around foreign currency, balance sheet planning, capital planning, and cash flow planning. Transplace also refined and enhanced their financial reporting capabilities. This session will give attendees insight into how they can leverage Oracle Enterprise Performance Management to meet a diverse set of financial planning needs and successfully transform their business..
Free-Form Planning or Essbase 21c: How Do I Choose?
Thursday, July 1st | Session Number 11580 | Track: Essbase | 12:40 PM – 1:20 ET
Essbase is a premier product for Finance—an excellent choice for Fortune 500 companies. However, in recent years Essbase can be found powering many of Oracle’s Enterprise applications—from Fusion SaaS and EPM SaaS applications to on-premises custom analytic applications to Bespoke planning with Essbase on OCI—which can be confusing when trying to decide what form of Essbase to implement. Do I move to a full SaaS deployment of Essbase with free-form Planning or move to an Essbase 21c standalone OCI cloud configuration?
Join us at this session to get insight into the benefits of deploying free-form applications vs. moving to a standalone OCI Marketplace Essbase 21c cloud implementation. Learn about considerations when migrating, how your decision may affect how you maintain software updates & patches, licensing costs, and more. However you decide which solution is for you, learn all the ins and outs of what a migration involves and common pitfalls to avoid.
