Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) software helps organizations plan, budget, report, and forecast business performance. EPM also helps businesses consolidate and close their books. The finance department mainly uses it for financial planning. In contrast, other functional areas, such as IT, HR, sales, and marketing, use it for operational planning, budgeting, reporting, and forecasting.
EPM systems complement their ERP counterparts by providing management and operational insights. EPM systems help you analyze, understand, and report on your business performance, while ERP systems help you manage day-to-day operations. With EPM software, you can improve organizational performance by comparing financial and operational results against organizational goals and forecasts.

EPM in the Cloud

EPM systems have led the finance transition from spreadsheets to more robust solutions, enabling businesses to move their focus away from low-value tasks like reconciliations towards high-value tasks like analysis and forecasting.

EPM in the cloud lowers CAPEX and OPEX, eliminating the need for companies to purchase expensive hardware and software or hire additional IT staff. Without supporting costly infrastructure, businesses can invest in growth and expansion, while employees can focus on more valuable initiatives instead of managing IT. A cloud EPM suite also offers greater advantages when compared to point solutions for consolidation, tax reporting, or planning and budgeting. Integrate performance management processes across the enterprise, aligning strategy with execution and providing employees better visibility into all aspects of the business. An integrated, cloud EPM suite also offers seamless data and process integration with other enterprise applications – both on-premise and in the cloud.
Oracle EPM Cloud offers the next generation of EPM, incorporating advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. AI & ML help improve financial and operational decision-making by detecting hidden patterns and insights in historical data. An Oracle EPM Cloud Consulting Partner can automate routine tasks, minimizing manual labor and reducing human errors. Automation frees up valuable time for your workforce to uncover strategic insights and provide forward-looking guidance to your management.
