The power of Oracle ERP Financial and Oracle EPM together

Successful organizations integrate their Oracle ERP Financial with Oracle EPM and allow their financial analysis and planning teams to foresee performance gaps, access the root cause, collaborate strategically, and execute quickly.

Oracle Enterprise Data Management in Oracle EPM uses an intelligent inference engine to find the right stakeholders to participate in workflow and discuss various issues via conversational threads, while uninviting inactive participants at relevant times. The crowdsourcing approach enables peer-to-peer application dimension sharing that helps in paving broader information accessibility. This also empowers employees with relevant data for quick and efficient decision making.

The Narrative Reporting in Oracle EPM Cloud enables collaborative and authoring review phases removing time-consuming and flawed reporting processes. It offers a check-in and check-out process for the report and the reviewer tools that ease collaboration through notifications, access controls, change comparisons, and status centers.

Running through all of these solutions are part of a cohesive workflow. Sharing contextually relevant content and important data can lead to higher levels of employee participation. Using Oracle Financial cloud, employees will have access to all the finance-related documents and thus providing them with inputs between the team, irrespective of location.
