So please take a look.

The video gives a brief overview of the main features of  Hyperion Tax Provision. You will learn ...

  • That Tax Provision and reporting System builds on the Hyperion Financial Close Reporting Platform
  • That much of the Tax Provision flow process is similar to the Financial Close Process and that the modules have been aligned to work together very closely.
  • That HTP enables you to integrate Book- and Tax Reporting on a common platform.
  • That It uses the technology of HFM, ties in with SmartView and can be used with Hyperion Financial Reporting.
  • That the native integration between the Financial System and the Tax System creates transparency for the Tax Departments and removes bottlenecks in the tax process.

Advisor Webcast: Hyperion Tax Module

(in via Tanya)

Corporate income tax is one of the largest expense lines on the group income statement.

The tax expense often represents as much as 40% of total profit. Yet, the systems in use to calculate the tax provision - a key element in the financial close process - continue to be a disconnected array of point solutions and spreadsheets that lack the transparency warranted by such material numbers.

Furthermore, the tax provision continues to be a bottleneck in the financial close and consumes time that could otherwise be spent on more valuable activities such as risk analysis and tax planning.

Join us for a webcast; given by Product Management, on

Hyperion Tax Provisioning (HTP) Module
on October 8th.

It will highlight the benefits of this module and a demo will be provided.

This is your opportunity to learn about HTP and how it can benefit you and your company during the financial close process.

Advisor Webcast: Integrating DRM with EPMA

Leave out your shoes early this year!

On December 5th Saint Nicolas has something to put into them...

Another Advisor Webcast is on:

This time it is Matt Lontchar presenting the setup and use of Data Relationship Modeling ( DRM ) with Hyperion EPMA (to be then used with Planning and or HFM)

In this one-hour session he will demonstrate the setup and configuration of a Data Relationship Management application for chart of accounts management with Oracle General Ledger and dimension management for Oracle EPM System applications such as Hyperion Financial Management and Hyperion Planning.

Key Points will be:

  • Configuring Data Relationship Management for Oracle GL and EPM Architect integration
  • Configuring Hyperion Foundation Services (Weblogic, Web Services Manager, Shared Services)
  • Deploying and configuring the DRM Web Service
  • Setting up Oracle General Ledger for DRM integration
  • Configuring EPM Architect for DRM integration

So - treat yourself for some pre-season "chocolate" and join in on this webcast.

reminder - HFM Webcast tomorrow

This is the last reminder:

Tomorrow we will have the Advisor Webcast about new features in HFM.

Do not miss this one. Greg and Tanya have put together a nice set of Demonstrations of the new features, so this one will be low on the powerpoint footprint and more about - "look what this new thing does".

You can find more details in this  post or visit the "Advisor Webcast Current Schedule" on  MOS.
