Oracle Hyperion PBCS
Companies today are faced with a rapidly changing business environment. Demand is volatile, costs fluctuate, and the supplier landscape changes constantly. A key requirement to stay ahead of the competition
is to understand this volatility and model for these financial and operational changes quickly based on changing assumptions.
Hyperion PBCS is Oracle's Hyperion Planning & Budgeting Cloud Service (PBCS), which is now referred to as Planning in Oracle EPM Cloud.
PBCS (Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service) provides sophisticated modeling and predictive analytical capabilities that allow users to create multiple what-if versions and slice and dice data based on
various what-if assumptions. PBCS also has a rolling forecast wizard which makes it simple to implement a driver-based rolling forecast process in which the forecasting time horizon rolls forwards across
years over time.
PBCS has a powerful calculation engine that can be used to express a range of business logic with fast in-memory aggregation and instant analysis and reporting. Reports and dashboards that display plan,
forecast, and actual data can be created in minutes, and any change made to the plans in PBCS are instantaneously reflected in the content of the reports and dashboards. With the web interface, users can
access dashboards, interactive analytics, and formatted financial reports while interacting with the planning system.
PBCS is a purpose-built business process that allows you to meet the objectives of your business by creating goal-oriented, driver-based plans, reports, and dashboards. You can create custom financials,
sales, and operational models and connect the different business processes to create continuous integrated planning, forecasting, and reporting solution across the enterprise.
PBCS also allows you to plan and forecast for complex business what-if scenarios by using ad hoc scenario modeling, sandbox, and predictive features. Users can create multiple what-if versions and slice
and dice data based on various assumptions, creating instant reports.
PBCS includes pre-built modules that can be used to address your specific planning needs. The modules can be used by both finance and operational planners. They can be used in their entirety or with configured
processes to quickly deliver value to your planning.

In today's dynamic business environment, organizations cannot afford lengthy implementation cycles and need to get up and running quickly on their new software applications. MindStream's COMPASS methodology
drives iterative-based cycles for shorter and more flexible implementations. We have modified the traditional phased project plan into an "iterative" build cycle that incorporates key components of the
Agile SCRUM methodology. This methodology enables shorter timelines and is very flexible and scalable to all sizes and types of implementations. A key foundation for our Compass methodology is two-way
knowledge sharing, which is vital to any successful implementation project.
