Fortune 200 Global Food Conglomerate Goes Live!

After a merger, two companies became one.  But what about their financial systems??  One legacy company used HFM, Planning and Essbase with Oracle Managed Cloud Services (OMCS), whereas the other legacy company managed their own HFM environment but used Oracle’s Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service (PBCS).  The combined company needed one new, cohesive environment managed by OMCS. Both HFM applications had disparate charts of accounts that needed to be merged, and management reporting in Essbase needed to be realigned to agree to HFM.


Excel to Essbase for Price, Volume and Currency Analysis!

In Finit’s latest Go-live announcement, our client went live with a solution that moved their Price, Volume, and Currency analysis from hundreds of linked and nested Excel files to Essbase.  With the new application, our client is able to analyze variances in these three categories between Actual and Forecasted results, as well as between different Forecast versions.
