John Taylor, Senior EPM Consultant, Vertical Edge

Planning and Budgeting on the Cloud with Oracle PBC and EPBC are very powerful cloud solutions for building planning applications, but they can be intimidating tasks to implement.  Additional challenges evolve when you have organizations that have never used Hyperion Planning or other Essbase solutions in the past.  Join this session as I share my experiences with doing multiple Cloud Planning implementations with clients that have never used an Oracle/Hyperion Planning solution previously.
