Attending the OneStream Splash conference was very exciting and a valuable and informative experience. OneStream’s unified platform streamlines financial consolidation, reporting, and planning processes, while providing valuable insights. The conference provided a roadmap for success by showcasing successful OneStream implementations and highlighted how to avoid common pitfalls. It was also an opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals and OneStream and industry experts. Finally, the conference provided a glimpse into the future of OneStream’s platform.

At this conference, there were several technical sessions for those looking to improve their OneStream application. One of the highlights of the conference was learning about how OneStream can be implemented for those looking to expand their ESG reporting capabilities. As ESG reporting becomes increasingly important for businesses, many organizations are seeking to effectively manage the process. In a presentation titled How to implement ESG and Align with Financial, attendees were able to learn how OneStream Software can help conquer ESG reporting. Here are the three key takeaways from this informative presentation:

OneStream Software simplifies ESG reporting

ESG reporting can be a complex and time-consuming process. The platform is designed to help organizations manage ESG data and streamline the reporting process. OneStream Software allows businesses to collect data from various sources and auto-populate the necessary reports. This can save businesses time and resources, while ensuring accuracy in reporting.

OneStream Software provides transparency

Transparency is a key aspect of ESG reporting, as stakeholders expect businesses to provide clear and accurate information about their environmental, social, and governance practices. OneStream Software provides transparency by allowing organizations to track and report on ESG metrics in real-time.

OneStream Software improves decision-making

It also provides businesses with the tools and insights they need to make informed decisions about their operations. The platform allows organizations to track and analyze data over time, identifying trends and patterns that can inform strategic decision-making.

Overall, attending Splash was a valuable experience that provided knowledge, insights, and networking opportunities. Attendees also connected with like-minded professionals and OneStream experts, expanding their networks, and learning from industry experts.

It was a great week at the OneStream Splash 2023 Conference in National Harbor, Washington, DC! After a three-year hiatus, having the Splash Conference back in full swing was very exciting. I know my Perficient colleagues, and I enjoyed meeting each other in person for the first time and conversing with potential and current customers. The annual user conference brings together OneStream users, partners, and experts worldwide for three full days of learning, networking, and fun. A few of the most valuable aspects of OneStream Splash are the opportunity to connect with other OneStream users and experts, share our experiences, learn from each other, and build lasting relationships with individuals in the CPM realm.

My favorite breakout session that I attended was Analytic Blend – Simplifying your OneStream Application while making the granular Details Available When Needed. OneStream Analytic Blend is a powerful tool that allows an organization to combine data from multiple sources, including OneStream cube data and external data sources such as ERP systems, data warehouses, and other systems. The breakout session covered the importance of utilizing Analytic Blend/Services to hone in on granular-level detail, such as product/SKU data. It also dove into some best practices for building analytical blend services.

I want to highlight a few of the key benefits of using the analytical services that OneStream provides:

First, it enables organizations to perform complex analytics on blended data, such as multidimensional analysis, ad-hoc reporting, and visual data exploration, all while maintaining a single source of truth system. This enables organizations to uncover insights and identify opportunities for improvement.

Second, unlike some ERP and CPM solutions, OneStream supports advanced data modeling capabilities, including creating alternate hierarchies, mappings, and calculations. This makes it easier to manage complex data structures and perform calculations on blended data.

With the ability to gain insight into this granular level of detail and report on KPIs that would otherwise be nearly impossible to report on in a timely manner, the decision-makers in an organization are able to view data in real-time and make more informed decisions, which can lead to improved performance and increased profitability.

Lastly, as AI and machine learning expand across companies, the analytical blend services that OneStream provides serve as a foundation for further enhancements.

Overall, OneStream Splash is a must-attend event for anyone who uses OneStream or is interested in learning more about CPM. The conference offers a unique combination of education, networking, and fun, all in a beautiful location. If you want to take your skills and knowledge to the next level, consider attending OneStream Splash 2024 in Las Vegas. We hope to see you there!
