Financial performance management from IBM and Oracle

The challenge

Make your processes more efficient
How long are your financial close and budget cycles? Does your staff spend too much time on data collection and manual interventions, leaving little time to actually analyse the numbers and write commentary? Do you have confidence in the information you're using to create budgets and forecasts? Financial consolidation, reporting, budgeting and planning are complex processes with many challenges. The financial performance management solution from IBM and Oracle employs Oracle Hyperion applications to help make these processes more efficient for everyone involved—from accountants and controllers to financial analysts and managers.

The solution

Benefit from IBM's depth and breadth of experience
Our financial performance management solution can address your needs across financial close and reporting processes, as well as planning, budgeting and forecasting. Because IBM understands that different organisations have different systems and styles of management, we begin by assessing your existing processes, organisational structures and technology landscape. The next step is to design a solution that is customised to your specific requirements.

To help with your close and reporting activities, IBM employs Oracle Hyperion Financial Management, a comprehensive, web-based application that delivers global financial consolidation, reporting and analysis in a single, highly scalable software solution. IBM has experience helping clients of various sizes in a number of industries collect, consolidate and report financial results in compliance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and multiple Generally Accepted Accounting Principals (GAAPs) using Hyperion Financial Management.

To help improve your planning, budgeting and forecasting processes, we use Oracle Hyperion Planning, a centralised, Microsoft® Excel and web-based solution that integrates financial and operational planning processes and improves business predictability. IBM knows how to improve your processes and implement Hyperion Planning to give you an in-depth look at your business operations and their related impact on financials, by tightly integrating financial and operational planning models.
