Qubix are World’s first Certified Planning and Budgeting Cloud Services (PBCS) Specialist

Qubix International announced that they are the world’s first Oracle Partner to achieve OPN-Specialization for Planning and Budgeting Cloud Services (PBCS).

Qubix, an Oracle Platinum Partner, are making this new Cloud product available in a packaged offering that includes Software-as-a-Service, implementation services, training and support, all for one low monthly fee.

“We’re excited to be the first to offer customers this service that combines the power of Oracle’s enterprise planning in the Cloud solution with all the services customers need included for one low monthly fee,” said Paul Johnston, General Manager of Qubix. “Yes, there are other cloud offerings, but these typically don't include the implementation services, the training, ongoing support and consulting customers need, so we’ve re-imagined how service should be delivered in the Cloud world and simplified everything.” he went on to add that the new Qubix service includes:

A subscription to the Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Services

A choice of Express, Professional or Enterprise implementation packages

Training to maximize user engagement and productivity

On-going Support and managed services

Qubix packaged subscriptions start at £12 per user per day for an entry-level budgeting, planning and forecasting solution, increasing to £29 per user per day for an enterprise-grade solution.

Using this cloud based service; companies can reduce costs and complexity while accelerating the speed of delivery without compromising any features or capabilities.

Neil Sellers, Director of Qubix, added, “We want to make planning, budgeting and forecasting simple and affordable for all businesses, no matter what their size or complexity.”

By tapping into the benefits of the Cloud, businesses no longer need to purchase and set up hardware and software, which greatly accelerates the deployment time and significantly reduces costs. Qubix estimates that the total cost of ownership savings for a typical customer will be between 30% - 40% over a three year period.

The new service means businesses can take advantage of all the benefits of Cloud SaaS, providing an enterprise-wide, multidimensional planning, reporting and analysis solution, without compromise. This has been proven, in some instances, to reduce planning and budgeting cycle times by up to 90%, thus promoting faster & better business decisions.

SaaS or Rental: What is the difference ?

In these days of cloud computing there is much talk of flexible commercial models to match the potential from more flexible technology architectures.  Software as a Service (SaaS), Rental or Managed Services are among the many labels variously applied to potential commercial models offered to customers: so how can you as an Oracle BI / EPM Partner best respond when your client asks for this kind of approach ?

In many cases when I get into this conversation, I find most customers are very happy when I explain they can rent Oracle software, for example, for one year.  It is really simple.

If you want to find out more, then download this BI & EPM Partner Guide to renting Oracle software
