Integrating (E)PBCS with Office 365

Smart View provides seamless Office 365 integration

The charge to Cloud technologies in IT and Finance continues, and you’ll be glad to hear your two Cloud solutions integrate seamlessly.

Cloud Software-as-a-Service remains the hottest trend in the market, with most companies opting to abandon their ageing and costly infrastructure and moving to a bright Cloud future.

The benefits over traditional installations are obvious – infrastructure costs are a thing of the past, more budget can be directed to developing and perfecting your processes, and other internal investment. You can even wave goodbye to paying for endless patching and upgrades - your solutions are kept cutting-edge as part of the service and automatically patched at your convenience.

The front-runners in their respective fields are Microsoft and Oracle, with Microsoft’s Office 365 package providing incredible value to their customers. Very few organisations can function without Outlook and Excel, not to mention it provides additional tools like Power BI, Skype for Business and OneDrive to maximise employee productivity.

Similarly, Oracle’s Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service, built on the 'world-class' Hyperion Planning technology, offers you incredible planning and budgeting capability, while also integrating seamlessly with your Office 365 suite. Oracle Smart View is the extension which drives this connectivity – simply install Smart View on your locally-installed Office 365 applications and you'll be able to pull up-to-date data straight into Excel or PowerPoint.

Both the Office 2016 and 2013 solutions that come with Office 365 are supported with Smart View connectivity, which means there hasn’t been a better time to drive your organisation towards the Cloud.
