Oracle Cloud EPM Planning

Drive accurate, connected plans across your business and be prepared for what's next. Navigate uncertainty with scenario modeling. Leverage built-in best practices and predictive intelligence across finance, line of business, and operations


Planning, Budgeting, and Forecasting:

  • Create decision-oriented plans - Make better decisions by creating goal-oriented, driver-based plans. Get immediate insight to your performance with interactive dashboards and reports and leverage predictive planning to recommend the best path forward.

  • Connect your business - Connect every part of your business with a plan that is fully integrated across finance, operations, and lines of business. With connected planning, you can immediately analyze the impact of changes across your business.

  • Do free-form modeling at scale - Model multiple complex financial and operational what-if scenarios with large-scale, free-form ad-hoc modeling. Use predictive planning features to validate assumptions and reduce the risk in your decisions.

Prepare for anything with Scenario Modeling:

  • Apply sophisticated financial intelligence - Leverage financial intelligence and other powerful, built-in features to rapidly model multiple scenarios to quickly deal with change.

  • Support your decisions with Monte Carlo simulations - Use Monte Carlo simulations to determine the likelihood of various scenarios, giving you confidence in your decisions.

  • Align strategy with plans - Understand the impact of strategic decisions across your bottom line, balance sheet, cash flow, and shareholder value before pushing to your operational plan.

  • Optimize capital structure - Model different funding options and understand the impact your strategies will have on your credit rating and capital structure.

Retain top talent with workforce planning:

  • Plan for compensation expenses - Plan compensation-related expenses by employee, job code, or at a level of detail that makes sense for your business using out-of-the-box, driver-based planning.

  • Align finance and HR  - Build the workforce you need to execute on your strategic goals. Collaborate more with HR with prebuilt integration to Oracle Cloud Human Capital Management (HCM) and integration with other third-party cloud HCM solutions.

  • Leverage wizard-based planning for ease of use - Maintain complex employee expense calculations, such as benefits, tax expense, and others with easy-to-use planning wizards.

Plan your capital asset expenses:

  • Track the full lifecycle of capital investment - Create cashflow and funding plans for investments and leased assets. Also plan for new capital assets and take advantage of out-of-the-box calculations for depreciation and amortization during the lifespan of the asset.

  • Plan asset-related expenses - Easily model asset-related expenses such as repairs and insurance. Automate processes such as retirements, transfers, and improvements.

  • Plan for intangible assets - Plan for new and existing intangible assets, including amortization and cash flow planning and impairments.

  • Review your capital expenses - Get an overall capital expense spending analysis, including asset summary reports, and actual versus plan variances. See the impact on cash flow, balance sheet, and income statement by asset class and business unit.

Understand the financial aspects of your projects:

  • Model all project types - Use out-of-the-box drivers to plan costs related to both short- and long-term projects. These include internal projects, such as IT, R&D, marketing campaigns, and contract-based projects or projects across more complex project-oriented industries, such as construction, engineering, and professional services.

  • Plan detailed project costs and revenues - Understand the financial impact of your projects. Use drivers that help you plan for individual employee and asset-related costs, as well as expected revenues.

  • Track project performance - Use prebuilt metrics to track project revenue, expenses, and cash flow. Leverage performance indicators such as net present value, payback, and return on investment.

Plan across all financial statements:

  • Optimize your revenue plan - Accurately plan revenue, sales, and gross margin by adding dimensions for specific drivers related to your business.

  • Plan for all expenses - Plan for all of your expenses with prebuilt best-practice expense drivers. Include expenses from workforce and capital planning with prebuilt integration.

  • Analyze the balance sheet - See the full picture by integrating balance sheets fully with income statements and cash flow. Configure for industry-specific requirements.

  • Model your cash flow - Model cash from operations with fully integrated cash flow planning for short, medium, and long-term time horizons.

Empower users with Intelligent Performance Management (IPM):

  • Improve decisions with predictive planning - Identify and leverage patterns in your financial and operational data to improve accuracy. Run predictions on the latest actuals and factor those into your plans for more timely, objective decisions.

  • Simulate possible outcomes - Use Monte Carlo simulations to determine the likelihood of various scenarios and support your plans.


  • Manage uncertainty with scenario modeling - Leverage scenario modeling for crisis and long-range planning, cash forecasting, and more.

  • Connect planning across the enterprise – Gain planning alignment and accuracy by accessing built-in best practice capabilities across finance, operations, and line of business.

  • Empower users with emerging technologies - Make better decisions by leveraging Monte Carlo simulations, predictive planning, and intelligent performance management.
