Presented by Vince Tran
What’s the difference between PBCS and EPBCS?  In this session we will cover all 4 modules (Financials, Workforce, Project and Capital) that make up Enterprise Planning Cloud Services (EPBCS).  EPBCS makes it easier to get away from spreadsheets and drive the planning process beyond Finance to the broader community of line managers. EPBCS empowers operational planners with flexibility, scalability, and the ownership to plan the way they want, when they want, while still offering the transparency and control required for corporate finance.
