Vendor Session: Best Practices: Moving Oracle Hyperion Financial Management to the Cloud presented by:

Hands-on Lab: Data Management Hacks to Turn You into a FDMEE Cloud Ninja! presented by:

You don’t need to be an expert to go beyond standard file-based data loading, but chances are, if you’re loading data to EPM Cloud apps such as EPBCS or FCCS, you are using Data Management in the form of FDMEE Cloud. Attend Peloton’s hands-on training session to learn about some of our favorite time-saving integration options, utilizing often overlooked features within FDMEE Cloud. During this session, Peloton’s team of experts will cover:

  • All data type integrations for loading non-numeric data, such as text, dates, and Smart List values
  • Multi-column integrations to load data for multiple dimension members in a single row of data
  • Driver-dimension data loads to specify target values by dimension
  • Loading periods as a column to support multi-period single row files
  • Data Sync to synchronize data between EPM target applications

Wed. 6/26 | 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM | Room: 607, Level 6
How an Emerging Bio-Tech Company Aligned to EPBCS Workforce Planning in 8 Weeks presented by:

Highlighting the recent experience at Foundation Medicine, a private biotech company, this presentation will review how the company was able to align their WFP process to the EPBCS approach by leveraging recent updates to the module, within an accelerated timeframe. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the capabilities of WFP in EPBCS—both new and old—and how these can be leveraged to align current WFP business processes with Oracle best practices. WFP has proven to be one of the most popular planning modules in the market.

Its capabilities were recently extended to include new Groovy calculations and “customized” calculations while still being “out-of-the-box.” These added features have increased companies’ ability and interest in aligning their business process with Oracle’s best practices, laying the foundation for future growth. Foundation Medicine, faced with the challenge of increasing their workforce by 30%, illustrates this journey and how WFP in EPBCS was able to meet their needs. One question we continue to see from interested clients is, “how do other firms manage to align their WFP process to EPBCS so quickly?” We hope you join us to find out.
