FAQ: Will I get the same features in Oracle PBCS as I have with on-premises Hyperion Planning?
Yes! Not only does Oracle PBCS have all of the features and capabilities of Hyperion Planning on-premises, it offers so much more. The dashboard features offer various chart types from already created Webforms, and even has a drill-down function on the chart to identify the problem area. This can be accessed via a tablet or smartphone for on-the-spot queries. Auditing is a click away and can be exported. An activity log is generated every day, with a level of detail that goes down to which users used what browser. These and many other features are standard with PBCS. Oracle PBCS was designed for ease-of-use, and is accessible through Microsoft Office with an add-in. It boasts a simplified interface, enabling business users to manage the solution directly with no IT involvement. Oracle PBCS is the an ideal foundation for making the transition to enterprise performance management, but even for those companies with a solution in place, its ease of use and implementation put PBCS ahead of all its competitors. Its rich framework allows users to meet their immediate financial planning, budgeting and forecasting needs while enabling future cross-functional expansion and automated EPM process integration.
