What is EPBCS?

What is Enterprise Planning & Budgeting Cloud Service ?


EPBCS or Enterprise Planning & Budgeting Cloud Service is now known as Planning in the Oracle EPM Cloud. EPBCS is similar to PBCS (Planning & Budgeting Cloud Service) in that it comes with modular-based Planning offered as Standard cloud feature. In addition, EPBCS comes with custom planning, free form planning, and customized groovy scripts offered as Enterprise cloud features.

Pre-built content can be gradually customized to your planning needs, and all modules can be integrated with each other. End users can create custom planning and forecasting models or get up and running quickly with purpose-built planning models that include prebuilt calculations, dashboards, and reports.

Additional features of Oracle’s Planning in the Cloud solution include:

Decision-Oriented Plans with an Instant Feedback Loop - meet the objectives of your business by creating goal-oriented, driver-based plans, reports, and dashboards. Get an immediate sense of your business plans using easy-to-create dashboards and reports that are refreshed instantaneously using in-memory calculations and fast aggregations.

Continuous Planning Solution to Suit Your Business Needs - businesses can create their own custom financials, sales, and operational models and connect the different business processes to create a continuous integrated planning, forecasting, and reporting solution across the enterprise.

What-If Modeling and Sandbox - plan and forecast for complex business what-if scenarios by using ad hoc scenario modeling, sandbox, and predictive features. Create multiple what-if versions and slice and dice data based on various assumptions to create instant reports.

Drive accurate, connected plans—from long-range planning to periodic rolling forecasts—that incorporate best practices as needed. Whether you are in corporate financial planning and analysis (FP&A), sales, marketing, human resources, IT, or operations, everyone can benefit from the simplicity of Planning in the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud.
