Global Restaurant Group reduces IT reliance by integrating retail and strategic planning with Oracle EPM Cloud

Business Challenges

  • Outdated Systems – Needed to “Lift and Shift” their current on premise Hyperion Planning application to Oracle EPM Cloud
  • Inefficient Processes – Financial processes for their Annual Budget and Quarterly Forecasts were inefficient


  • Migrated Hyperion Planning application to Oracle EPM Cloud – Enabled two environments (Dev/QA and Product) via EPM Cloud for planning and reporting
  • Enabled Easy Adoption – Supported the end-users as they adopted the solution and its related reporting and analytic functions by conducting User Acceptance Testing
  • Automated Processes – Converted data load processes to FDMEE and all batches to EPM Automate to automate previously manual and time-consuming processes


  • Reduced Reliance on IT Infrastructure – Eliminated the need to support and maintain hardware and associated services with the on premise solution
  • Scalable, Extensible Solution – Oracle EPM Cloud can be leveraged as the organization and processing needs grow
  • Easily Administered Solution – Ensured the solution can be maintained by the organization on a go-forward basis
  • Improved Forecast Accuracy – Oracle EPM Cloud supports Financial Planning Processes for Annual Budget and Quarterly Forecast
