EPM Cloud: The New Status Quo

Benefits Far Beyond Cost Savings

Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud helps companies of any size lead with confidence in the digital economy. With industry standards and Modern Best Practice, Oracle EPM Cloud helps you drive accurate and agile plans across finance and lines of business, analyze profitability and cost management, accelerate the financial close, and much more.

Analyze, Understand, And Report On Your Business.

The EPM Cycle

In an environment of constant change, new competitors, and economic uncertainty, EPM offers a tool for organizations to manage their agile businesses. With finance at the helm, EPM business processes (strategic modeling, plan, consolidate and close, report, and analyze performance) can help organizations understand their data and use it to make better business decisions.

  • Elevate business outcomes with embedded intelligence and advanced analytics
  • Close the books faster with comprehensive financial close
  • Gain forecast accuracy across financial & operational planning

Building EPM: Analysis to Action

EPM executes strategic planning, budgeting, consolidation, reporting, and analysis processes in a closed loop. Traditional management accounting reports are transformed into “performance playbooks” — taking a more inclusive approach to explaining results.

  • Optimize the financial close
  • Streamline account reconciliation
  • Drive accurate and agile integrated plans
  • Manage and drive profitability
  • Align tax reporting with corporate financial reporting
  • Satisfy all your reporting requirements
  • Manage change with enterprise data management

Top 5 Reasons for Moving EPM to the Cloud

Just say NO to upgrades. In the era of digital disruption, organizations seek to be more nimble. The cloud offers the agility to rapidly adapt and stay ahead of changing conditions. Moreover, by moving EPM to the cloud, the risk of technology obsolescence drops to zero — putting the business on a more solidly competitive footing.

Economic considerations remain key reasons for moving to the cloud, but with systems starting to age, avoiding on-premises upgrades rises to the top.

Do you have EPM Processes in the Cloud?

The Shift Is Happening

Within the office of finance, EPM processes have often been the first to move to the cloud, and EPM in the cloud is rapidly becoming the new standard. The pace of adoption is accelerating, with 62 percent of this year’s survey respondents reporting that they are currently running EPM processes in the cloud, or will within the next 12 months. This is up from 46 percent in last year’s survey.

Overall, 79 percent of respondents indicate they have plans for EPM in the cloud within the next two years, versus 65 percent in last year’s survey.

SkyBridge Approach to Enterprise Performance Management (EPM)

An important characteristic of modern EPM cloud is the unified solution or applications suite. When compared to deploying a single-point software application—such as consolidations or planning and budgeting—an EPM cloud suite offers the best advantage. A complete solution integrates management processes across the organization, aligning strategy with execution.

We understand a range of enterprise performance management best practices that help top-performing companies drive the greatest ROI from their EPM deployments. Examples of proven best practices for enterprise performance management include:

  • Central data repository base on consistent well defined data
  • Rationalize the number of enterprise performance reports and business views, eliminating redundancy and reports with minimal relevance.
  • Shift business analysis away from backward-looking reporting toward forward-looking decision support.
  • Implement optimized EPM system that will help drive operational excellence across your enterprise.
