The top 5 myths circulated by others about Oracle PBCS

In talking to those of you who are looking to move to the Cloud, or thinking about implementing Oracle PBCS, I do hear a number of comments that start with "oh but i thought..." when it comes to Oracle Cloud.  There are a lot of myths out there, so I thought i'd dispel the more common ones for you...

Myth #1

"Oracle PBCS is not a true Cloud system. It's the cumbersome old technology Hyperion Planning in a hosted environment."

Wrong! Oracle PBCS is a true SAAS solution built on the proven Hyperion technology and optimised for the Cloud.


Myth #2

"Users need to be using Oracle ledgers such as JD Edwards, Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Fusion or Peoplesoft to achieve any form of integration with HFM or Hyperion Planning."

Wrong! Oracle PBCS is ERP and general ledger agnostic!! PBCS has an inbuilt data integrator known as FDMEE. Users can have any type of ledger or ERP they want to use. We have over 62 supported clients using a multitude of ERPs and ledgers systems!


Myth #3

"Users can download information from Webforms in PBCS using an Excell Add in."

Wrong! PBCS is completely integrated with Microsoft Office including Outlook, Excel, Word and PowerPoint. In fact, PBCS can be deployed in Office with no Webforms at all.


Myth #4

"Oracle PBCS is not easy to use, complicated and difficult to maintain."

Wrong! PBCS is simple to use and specifically designed for the finance and business user. It provides intuitive, GUI based tools and wizards.


Myth #5

"Oracle PBCS is consulting intensive and can take more than 100 days to implement."

Wrong! We specialise in implementing PBCS clients in a short time. We have references who can attest to the speed of delivery and clients who have implemented PBCS in as little as 30 days!
