Oracle Hyperion Planning

Oracle is one of the world’s largest software and hardware companies, employing 138,000 people worldwide. With more than 430,000 customers and deployments, Oracle offers a comprehensive stack of cloud applications, platform services and engineered systems.

The vendor’s BI and enterprise performance management (EPM) portfolio contains various on-premises and cloud products. The well-known Oracle Hyperion EPM portfolio and the Oracle BI suite are available as on-premises options. However, in 2014, Oracle changed its general release strategy to “Cloud First”, and the vendor now has a major strategic focus on enhancing its cloud portfolio. Oracle’s EPM and BI cloud portfolio includes Oracle EPM Cloud and Oracle Analytics Cloud. A variety of other on-premises and cloud offerings complete Oracle’s comprehensive portfolio. The EPM portfolio includes applications for planning, financial consolidation, performance reporting, financial strategy management, profitability and cost management, account reconciliation and tax reporting.

Hyperion Planning, Oracle’s on-premises planning product, was acquired with Hyperion Solutions in 2007 and is one of the most widely used planning products in the world with thousands of implementations. Based on Essbase as a multidimensional database, the platform is suitable for corporate planning as well as integrated financial planning. It is especially suited to centrally controlled, standardized planning applications in mid-size to large scenarios. Hyperion Planning is integrated with Oracle’s other on-premises EPM products, such as Hyperion Financial Management for financial consolidation.

Oracle’s entire EPM portfolio is now available in the cloud as EPM Cloud. This includes Planning Cloud (i.e. Enterprise Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service, Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service), Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud Service, and Profitability and Cost Management Cloud Service. All EPM Cloud solutions are based on a consistent technical architecture and can be deployed in a modular fashion.
