Making the Case for Enterprise Performance Management in the Cloud

Guest Author

Cloud services are not only a way of economizing operations and making efficiency savings; they are the foundations upon which a more innovative approach to business can be built.

By Jennifer Toomey, Senior Director, Cloud Business Group, Oracle

In today’s unpredictable business environment, your organization needs to put technology at the heart of its growth strategy. An important aspect of that strategy is developing agile forecasts, and operating on a platform that enables you to get ahead in the digital economy by meeting your customers’ demands and expectations.

Moving to cloud applications will not only transform the way your organization works but can also facilitate its growth.

Each business will have its own set of challenges and objectives, and assessing the value of cloud can appear to be difficult—and sometimes even puts businesses off taking their first steps. At Oracle, we are here to help you visualize, plan and take the next steps on your journey.

What is cloud worth to your business?

The Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud tool can help you to estimate the potential savings and revenue increases that your organization could realize with Oracle Cloud. By simply entering a few details about your business’ current size and performance, the tool will calculate your potential savings. Taking into account your industry and location, the tool will offer recommended improvements that can be made in each of the following areas:

  • Improved planning staff productivity
  • Improved reporting productivity
  • Reduced working capital costs
  • Improved decision-making profit margin
  • Improved analysis quality to drive revenue

You can fine-tune the input information to adjust the results of the tool and increase the accuracy of the data returned. In addition to the recommendations, there are a number of resources that can be explored, including eBooks and videos detailing stories from Oracle Cloud customers.
