Gartner’s Critical Capabilities for Government Budget Planning Products
By Mike.Hallett@Oracle-BI&EPM on Feb 24, 2012
Here is another fresh report from Gartner which is very positive about Oracle Hyperion: I urge you to share it with customers and prospects @ Critical Capabilities for Government Budget Planning Products.
- Oracle Hyperion Performance Management is rated #1 ahead of all competitors on both "Product Rating" and on "Overall Use Cases".
- "Budget constraints provide a burning platform to apply more managerial approaches to budgeting processes, such as strategic mapping, what-if scenario analysis, management dashboards and collaborative planning.
- The majority of government budget officers still rely primarily on Excel for their budgeting activities, but more comprehensive products have emerged to provide suites of capabilities, such as budget preparation, forecasting analysis and modeling, scorecards and dashboards, financial consolidation, publishing of budget documents, and financial reporting.
