Pros
"You can get the data directly from the database with Excel formulas."

More Infor dEPM Pros →

"Stable and scalable solution with a valuable data integration feature which allows the slicing and dicing of data. It also has a workforce planning feature that allows you to bring in your HR data.""It's basically the same as the other budgeting solutions.""Oracle Hyperion is fairly user-friendly and not too complicated. The forecasting, it's really good. It's sometimes slow when there are a lot of users using it and we can have up to approximately 300 users using it. However, you can do it in Excel because there's an Excel add-in. This is a benefit because a lot of people do this way instead of having to go into the planning application itself.""It's very easy to use and the functionality is quite complete.""The stability is fine and quite user friendly.""Scalability isn't a problem for Hyperion.""It is easy to use. It is very intuitive. Even though there is a lot of functionality that comes out of the box, you can customize the solutions to meet your needs. You have the ability to have business rules that produce all kinds of calculations. We're international, and we do all our FX conversions through that.""This solution provides a more structured methodology for doing analysis than a tool like Excel. It creates a central database that keeps all information in one place."

More Infor dEPM Cons →

"There can be an improvement in many regards with the dimensions, the metadata, the interfaces, as well as the integration.""The Oracle technical support in our area is terrible.""The analytical side of the product could be better and needs to be improved.""This solution's stability is a little problematic.""Sometimes Oracle Hyperion is slow when there are a lot of users using it. However, we can have up to approximately 300 users using it.""There's something known as a data block that Hyperion generates for each and every transaction. Sometimes it does not generate and we need to identify those issues and fix them manually.""The reporting feature in Oracle Hyperion isn't the best. It needs improvement.""Oracle Hyperion's scalability could be improved."
