Planning, Budgeting and Forecasting

Oracle Hyperion Planning & Cloud Solutions

In today’s highly volatile market, organizations need dynamic planning models to improve business predictability and the ability to develop a strategic contingency plan for business continuity.

As a business, not only do we need to concentrate on growing the bottom line, we also have to plan for the unexpected and take care of those who serve our organizations.

Planning, budgeting, and forecasting processes in general are technically challenging. It is common for companies to experience delay in the delivery of actual results because of insufficient data sourcing and workflow processes.

Maintaining spreadsheets is already an arduous task, but because of human error and lack of communication the task becomes more challenging. Having too many resources, the inability of planners to obtain the required information for the process, and lack of audit trails, to name a few, are the usual challenges in planning, budgeting, and forecasting processes.
