Strafford understands EPM and has partnered with forward thinking technology leaders such as Oracle to deliver cloud EPM solutions to finance organizations looking to improve and optimize team productivity, performance and efficiencies.
Need faster consolidation times? Finance and accounting organizations are moving away from on-premises software to cloud-based EPM solutions.

Before you make any quick decisions about your Oracle Hyperion environment, let Strafford help you understand the benefits and functionality of cloud-based EPM solutions vs on-premises software solutions.
If you are looking for a faster, more reliable and supported EPM environment, Strafford can help.
