Data Relationship Management (DRM): A Key Cloud Enablement Solution - Todd Van Hoozier, Oracle

We are all aware that adopting a Cloud strategy has huge benefits and drives value in our organization. We also know that we won’t get there overnight and that we sure could

use some help in this journey. Come learn the important role that Data Relationship Management (DRM) plays in your Cloud strategy both as a key enabler during migration as

well as for supporting ongoing change management and alignment across all of your Cloud and on-premises systems.


Enterprise Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service: A new approach to cloud planning implementations - Randy Schmitz, Cloud Practice Director and Vatsal Gaonkar, Certified Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service Implementation specialist, Edgewater Ranzal

During the session, we will provide insights on how Enterprise Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service (EPBCS) is changing the EPM landscape in terms of leveraging out-of-the-box

(OOTB) content. The session will show how EPBCS provides wizard based configuration along with incremental enablement of features to leverage OOTB content to quickly

implement a Planning solution.

Key Emphasis will be given to:

Defining the OOTB content that EPBCS provides

Capabilities available with the Financials, Capital, Workforce and Projects Business Processes?

How implementations are becoming more collaborative with EPBCS

Understanding how to extend EPBCS to meet your Planning needs

Demo the setup, configuration, and extension of an EPBCS application

I Didn’t Know That Existed in Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) and Financial Data Quality Management Enterprise Edition (FDMEE) - Edward Roske, interRel, Oracle Ace Director

Join us for an informative session that expands on the seldom used, more interesting, and useful capabilities in Hyperion Financial Management and FDMEE. Hyperion Financial

Management has been around for over 15 years. In that time, the great folks at Oracle (and Hyperion before them) have added so many features that some of the more

impressive ones are also the least known. From building dashboards in HFM to launching external URLs to drill through to underlying data to automated reconciliations of your

inter-companies to currency triangulation... the list of fascinating features goes on and on. We’ll then move over to Financial Data Quality Management (FDMEE), Oracle's one tool

to rule them all in the world of EPM ETL (Extracting metadata/data, Transforming & Loading). FDMEE is not the old FDM (or even ERPi) that people remember and we'll be hitting

some of the more interesting aspects of the product like "where is the Quality in FDMEE?" Don’t miss this session to go deep under the covers on both of these remarkable tools!

Dashboarding for Application Performance Management - Jonathan Berry - CEO, Accelatis

Dashboarding for application performance management can be a powerful way to measure and report on the state of various aspects of a system and organization. Different roles

for both Finance and IT administrators require different data, and care needs to be taken to ensure the dashboards don't get cluttered with data that isn't meaningful. This session

will look at how to identify meaningful metrics for various roles in an organization and aspects of the target systems. We’ll also look at how best to visualize current state and

trends as well as ways to correlate between activities and results.

MISSION POSSIBLE: Migrating to PBCS - Bob Usset, Manager, eCapital Advisors

Thinking of moving your on-premises Planning app into the Cloud? Don’t worry – you don’t have to start from scratch with PBCS. Understanding the proper order and strategy for an on-prem to PBCS

migration is key, and no one wants to learn the hard way. Instead, join eCapital Advisors as they walk you through everything you need to know regarding a PBCS migration strategy. In this session

we will cover proper migration order as well as a few gotchas around security. After aligning your migration strategy with our helpful tips and tricks, you’ll be on the cloud in no time!

Do you still need to build a data warehouse using traditional technologies? - Brad Reinders - Associate Principal and Strategy Lead for Analytics & Data Management Practice, Hackett

A well designed data warehouse is still the proven way to provide analytics on valuable data from the systems that you use to run your business. But data warehouses are expensive and take a long

time to build and often fail to meet expectations. Anything that would help reduce the cost and time to provide analytics to the business would be quickly embraced. We will take a look at some new

technologies and assess their abilities to play a role in this.


Let’s review – what are the reasons that data warehouses are built?


Let’s look forward – will new technologies help solve the challenges of building a data warehouse?


Can Data Lakes on Hadoop replace a data warehouse on a relational database?


Will Data Virtualization tools mean that you don’t have to build ETL and move data?


Do Self Service BI tools allow the business to access the source data themselves?


Let’s get real – what are the real reasons data warehouses so often fail to gain user adoption and how does that relate to these new technologies?


HFM rule tips for speed freaks - Chris Barbieri, Finit, Oracle Ace

Let's break the speed limit and cut your consolidation time by 50-70%! Oracle ACE Chris Barbieri will show you how to identify inefficiencies in your HFM rules, and how you can easily rewrite them to

get significant gains. Topics include:

-  avoid "rules that read from total" and calculate only what you minimally need to

-  use HFM's ImpactStatus function for roll-forwards and to synchronize data across scenarios

-  when to use Hs.Exp vs. Hs.SetDataWithPOV.

Chris assures you this is all legal!

Profitability & Cost Management – Have it Your Way - Mike Killeen, Sr. Vice President of Technology and Strategy, Edgewater Ranzal, Oracle Ace

With Oracle’s overall strategic direction focused on cloud-based offerings, it’s no surprise to see additional EPM applications become available as SaaS offerings. Profitability & Cost Management

Cloud Service (PCMCS ) is the next generation EPM cloud offering that provides many of the on-premise Hyperion Profitability and Cost Management (HPCM) Management Ledger modelling features.

Additionally, PCMCS has cloud-only capabilities such as mobile ready profitability dashboards, out-of-the-box profitability reports, and direct links to the Oracle Cloud marketplace for download of

implementation accelerators that will reduce implementation times and maximize time to value. Key Emphasis will be given to:

• A review of the key use cases, ranging from operational transfer pricing, to management reporting, through customer and product profitability, that can be supported by PCMCS

• An overview of key features in PCMCS related to functional administration, model development, and information delivery

• Comparison of on-premise HPCM and PCMCS feature differentials

• A preview of some of the available accelerators in the Cloud Marketplace

• A brief demo of the application

State of Business Analytics: The Great Debate - Edward Roske, interRel, Oracle Ace Director

interRel surveyed over 250 companies about topics throughout the areas of BI and EPM in its State of Business Analytics Survey 2017. The survey explores subjects including financial consolidation,

planning & forecasting, data governance, and reporting & analysis. The results revealed fascinating trends in cloud migration, close times, budget cycles, forecasting functionality, and more. Attendees

will learn how companies are doing at an aggregate level but also by industry, size, and company age. interRel will maintain the survey for the next 5 years to track the evolution of the business

analytics landscape. Take the survey to include your confidential results:

Why Your Budgeting Practice is Killing Your Bottom Line - Scott Costello, Key Performance Ideas

Do you have your budget wrong? You just spent hundreds (or more!) of hours running the annual budget process. It was painful. But, if you aren’t using the right budgeting models, the rest of the year

could be worse. If you don’t utilize the right budgeting practices, you will not be able to understand why expense levels are where they are and you probably won’t feel comfortable making decisions

based on interim cost information in the middle of the plan year. We discuss the four budgeting models – Predictive Planning, Rolling Forecast-Based Budgeting, Driver-Based Budgeting, and Zero-

Based Budgeting – and outline which technique is best based on your particular business unit cost structure, product complexity, and market growth and volatility. Scott Costello, our speaker,

showcases which budgeting practices work best across different businesses and functions, as well as how to improve your organization’s intelligence regarding ‘costs’ to:

Provide continuous visibility at the corporate center into current cost information

Improve spending decisions that affect the future

Understand cost relationship and make impartial mid-year resource allocation decisions


The Bill for IT: IT Service Costing, Showback & Chargebacks with Profitability & Cost Management Cloud Service (PCMCS) - Mike Killeen, Sr. Vice President of Technology and Strategy, Edgewater Ranzal, Oracle Ace

Within most “New Economy” organizations, Information Technology costs are one of the biggest areas of back-office spend. The goal of the Chief Information Office (CIO) is to make sure Information

Technology spend and services are aligned with business strategy, with the appropriate focus on Run vs. Build activities. IT Financial Management is one of the disciplines that supports the mission of

IT by providing critical planning & costing capabilities that provides for superior technology business management – allowing for IT to better deliver and demonstrate value to their internal business

partners. The recent release of Oracle Profitability & Cost Management Cloud Service (PCMCS) has created a platform to deliver performance management solutions to all areas of the enterprise.

With this in mind, Edgewater Ranzal and Oracle partnered to design and deliver downloadable content to the Oracle Cloud Marketplace to support IT Service Costing & Chargebacks. This session will

provide an overview of this new domain starter kit, including the data model and pre-built analytics, as well as walk through various costing methodologies available allowing an IT organization to

pivot between Financial, Project, Resource, Service & Consumer views of their data. Included in this presentation will be a demo of the new application.

ARCS and FCCS – A Customer Success Story - Dogma Pamir, Perficient

Orthofix International, a global medical device company and a legacy Hyperion Financial Management customer, needed to improve its overall close process, providing better tools to employees, and

minimize its infrastructure footprint. They partnered with Perficient to implement Oracle Hyperion Account Reconciliation Cloud Service (ARCS) and Financial Close Cloud Service (FCCS) to perform

account reconciliations and manage the close process. Perficient will discuss the implementation including lessons learned, benefits realized, and how these new applications could also benefit your

organization. Discussion will include:

Challenges with the existing legacy process

Oracle vs. competition

Benefits from the cloud solutions implemented

Decisions made during the implementation process

Getting Started with Maps in OBIEE, BICS and Data Visualization Desktop - Wayne Van Sluys, interRel, Oracle Ace

All data has some form of location associated with it. By incorporating a map view of the data we gain a sense of relationship & can see patterns in space that are not easily observed in any form of

visualization. Many BI Developers wish to incorporate Map Views is where to start, where to find map boundary data and how to pull it together with data sourced in the subject area. Go behind the

curtain on map integration & get a jump start into incorporating Map Views in your BI Dashboards, BI Mobile Applications & Visual Analyzer. This is a cross-over presentation that incorporates topics

from the Spatial Summit and BIWA Summit. This session will show via demos the steps necessary for developers to set up OBIEE and MapViewer to work together and present Map Views in OBIEE

Analysis and Dashboards. I will also show how to extend map layers into Mobile App Designer and Data Visualization Desktop and Visual Analyzer with BICS.

Band-Aiding Bleeding Edge Deployments and Maintaining Compliance with Oracle's Third Party Software Support - Mark Wirth, Principal, Infrastructure Practice Leader, The Hackett Group

Your IT is planning a major upgrade project to Office 365 but you're not sure if your version of Smart View will function properly afterwards. Or you're planning an upgrade to the latest version of

Oracle EPM but your HUG friends are telling you that it will not support the antiquated IE browser version that you are currently forced to use to remain compliant with another vendor's software.

Let's face it...Remaining compliant with Oracle's ever changing support matrix is a challenge. Where do you go for the facts and what best practice options are available to you? In this session we’ll

demystify this challenge and help you decide what versions of third party software are available to you and make the best sense to align your corporate standards with Oracle's support matrices. We

will discuss options that we have successfully implemented at other clients to mitigate risk and also answer any questions you may have about future road maps so that you can plan ahead and be

Hacking Hyperion: A White Hat Approach to Securing Your Instance - Jon Harvey, EPM Practice Lead, Casey Ratliff, Systems Architecture Lead

Because of its nature as a Financial Analysis system, Hyperion tends to house a company’s most sensitive information (and a lot of it!). In spite of this, security is rarely a focus of many Hyperion

implementations. In most areas of the suite, Hyperion is pretty good at securing itself. However, in a few glaring instances, there are default settings that leave you exposed. But don’t panic – an

ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! Join eCapital Advisors’ Jon Harvey and Casey Ratliff as they decrypt, disassemble and walk through some of the back doors of the Hyperion infrastructure

and how to secure them in your environment. Come learn about these exploits before your auditors do!


Hyperion Planning Interface: Simplified! - Cindy Eichner, Director, Finit

Learn how to implement Hyperion Planning’s Simplified Interface. Enhance and simplify the user experience with demonstrations of customization techniques and tips for guiding the user through

the planning process. See examples of existing applications which were converted from the classic interface to the simplified interface. Leave this session knowing how to implement the intuitive

mobile friendly Simplified Interface.

The Hyperion Planning Simplified Interface was introduced with version First available with PBCS it is now available for on premise implementations. Why use it? Lots of reasons


Workspace is no longer required

Access Hyperion Planning with a tablet

Guide the user through the planning process

Customize the look and feel of the application

More importantly, the simplified interface utilizes the latest client-side scripting techniques and users will experience faster response times. No more “fetching data” messages. During this session we

will demonstrate how to set up the simplified interface so that the user is guided through the planning process by using dashboards and planbooks. We will show several applications as originally

designed in an older version accessed through Workspace and then show the same applications as converted to the simplified interface. The demonstration will let the audience see the benefit of the

new technology but they will also learn how to set up the interface for the best user experience. Attendees will learn and see demonstrated tips and techniques for building a user friendly and

intuitive simplified interface.

HFM to FCCS – A Customer Success Story - Doga Pamir, Perficient

Finally it is out and ready to play… Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud Service (FCCS) is one of the latest cloud solutions offered by Oracle. It is offering several best practices with an out of the box

approach to address some of the most required business needs. CPI Card Group adds FCCS to its Oracle cloud products family (PBCS, BICS, etc.) and completes the transformation from on-prem to

cloud. In this session we will focus on the migration from HFM to FCCS and how CPI Card Group benefits from FCCS’s best practice out of the box offerings such as pre-built cash flow, equity overrides,

and more.

CPI Card Group decided to move its consolidations from Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) to Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud Service (FCCS). FCCS has a new approach with its built-in

features, dimensionality, and back-end structure. There are similarities, differences, and great benefits that come with it. FCCS is sitting on Essbase and HFM’s key “Value” dimension is split into other

dimensions. In this session we will take a closer look at the highlights of FCCS, what we have learned while going from HFM to Cloud, and how to make the transition easier.
