What is Oracle EPM?

EPM stands for Enterprise Performance Management

Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) software helps businesses to understand, analyze, and report on businesses and organizations. Whether your business is Small-to-Medium sized, Enterprise Level, Non-Profit, a Higher Education Institution or Public Sector organization, there is an Oracle EPM software available for you that can be configured for many business models within many industries.

EPM refers to the processes designed to help organizations plan, budget, forecast and report on business performance as well as consolidate and finalize financial results (often referred to as “closing the books”). EPM solutions are primarily used by CFOs and the office of finance, while other functional areas, such as Human Resources, Sales, Marketing, and Information Technology groups use EPM for operational planning, budgeting, and reporting.

Oracle and Hyperion EPM has evolved since the 90s to deliver modern cloud-based solutions today from yesterday’s time consuming and error-prone spreadsheets.
