PBCS Hyperion Planning in the Cloud Implementation Workshop

Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service (PBCS) opens up opportunities for organizations of all sizes to streamline planning and forecasting, accelerate deployment, and reduce costs.

This one-day in-person workshop is delivered by Oracle Development (free to OPN member partners), and will cover the handoff from selling-to-implementing of PBCS. Although the basic building blocks are the same as with on-premises Planning, there is a paradigm shift when it comes to selling and implementing a Cloud Service solution. The value proposition behind Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service is all about the deployment model, how it’s sold and how it gets implemented – simplicity, fast adoption and flexible deployment, without sacrificing first-class functionality.

To be successful, the entire cycle from sales to implementation should consistently support this value proposition to your clients. This training event is for OPN member partners whose business roles involve presales, implementation consulting, and support. This workshop briefly reviews the sales approach, as background, with emphasis on partner sales support. The main objective is to learn what is needed to successfully implement Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service once the sales hand off is made – how to leverage your current Hyperion Planning knowledge and use the features designed specifically to build out a Cloud Service solution.

This Workshop is being offered at three locations for partners from all countries in EMEA:

  • June 24, 2014: Kista, Sweden
  • June 26, 2014: Reading, United Kingdom
  • June 29-30, 2014 (split days): Dubaï, United Arab Emirates

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.
