A Vertical Edge Case Study

U.S. Based Company
Focusing on Superior Image Solutions

PBC Implementation

Lighting, Graphics and Technology

The Client:
Our client is a publicly traded, international Lighting, Graphics, and Technology company. They are committed to advancing solid-state LED technology to make affordable, high performance, energy-efficient lightning and custom graphic products. Our client also provides a full range of design support, engineering, installation and project management services to our customers.

The Challenge:
Our client contacted Vertical Edge because they needed to replace a heavily dependent Excel-based reporting system with disparate sources of data and a consolidated tool for reporting and planning Expense and Revenue. Ultimately, they wanted us to implement Oracle products Planning & Budgeting Cloud (PBC) and Financial Cost and Consolidation (FCC).

The Solution:
Vertical Edge relied heavily on Data Management to use files extracted from JDE for both GL data and Product level Revenue Data. Two cubes were used in LSI’s PBC application:
• Financial – Reporting and analytics of GL level data for actuals and budget
• Product – Product and Customer dimensions were created which in turn provides a tool for analysis of Top Customers and Products.

The Success Factors:
LSI now has a very strong JDE admin that can write reports and queries that provide data that can be mapped and allocated to assist with financial analysis and budgeting.

Company Annual Revenue:
$300+ million

The Solution Product:
PBC and Data Management
