Get Inspired to Move the Close to the Cloud

Lynne Sampson

How much visibility do you have into your financial close process?

How confident are you in the final numbers?

For years, thousands of companies have relied on Hyperion to manage their financial close. But the shift to cloud solutions is prompting many of those same companies to take a new look at Oracle EPM Cloud.

The advantages of moving from an on-premises application to the cloud are piling up:

On top of that, Oracle was recently named a leader in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Planning and Analysis Solutions and in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Close Solutions.  

Then, of course, there are the success stories of customers who are making the move.

Join Inspire Brands to Hear Their Migration Story

One of those customers is Inspire Brands, whose portfolio includes more than 4,600 Arby’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, and R Taco locations worldwide. Inspire Brands is a new multi-brand restaurant group launched earlier this year following the acquisition of Buffalo Wild Wings, Inc. by Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. Arby’s began the group’s journey to cloud by first moving to Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud. Following on that success, and with an aggressive growth and acquisition strategy, moving from Hyperion Financial Management to Oracle Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud made sense.

In a webcast with Financial Executives International (FEI) and Oracle, Inspire Brands discusses why the timing of the move was right for them. You’ll learn about the opportunities, the business case for change, migration considerations, and product considerations. Key takeaways include:  

  • How Oracle EPM Cloud increases visibility and confidence in the entire close process
  • How you can leverage modern best practices in the cloud to improve your business processes
  • Inspire Brands' best practices, TCO savings, and lessons learned moving Hyperion Financial Management to Oracle Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud
