We asked Chat GPT ‘what are the benefits of Oracle EPM?’

Not bad for a few seconds of processing but please be aware that to realise these benefits takes a skilled team and we can certainly help you in this regard:

Oracle EPM (Enterprise Performance Management) is a suite of integrated applications that enable organizations to manage and improve their performance across various business processes. Here are some benefits of Oracle EPM:
Better decision-making: Oracle EPM provides insights and analysis to help organizations make better decisions based on real-time data.

Enhanced financial management: Oracle EPM offers financial consolidation, budgeting, planning, and forecasting capabilities that help organizations to streamline financial processes, improve accuracy, and reduce financial risk.
Improved performance management: Oracle EPM allows organizations to align strategy with operational execution, improve process efficiencies, and manage performance across the organization.
Increased agility: Oracle EPM enables organizations to respond quickly to changing market conditions, identify opportunities and risks, and adapt their strategy accordingly.
Scalability and flexibility: Oracle EPM is highly scalable and flexible, and can be easily customized to meet the unique needs of different organizations.
Compliance and governance: Oracle EPM provides robust security features and compliance controls to help organizations manage risk and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.
Enhanced collaboration: Oracle EPM allows teams to work together in a collaborative environment, sharing data, insights, and analysis to drive better outcomes.
Overall, Oracle EPM can help organizations to improve their performance, optimize their financial processes, and drive better decision-making, leading to increased efficiency, profitability, and competitiveness.

McKinsey analysis reveals that oil and gas costs could rise by another 10% in 2023.

We can’t help thinking that implementing an EPM solution could help oil and gas companies manage their inflationary issues – from managing and consolidating data, to enabling shorter lead times for forecasting and budgeting. Contact us at [email protected]

Carbon offsetting

Carbon offsetting has been making the headlines recently and not for the right reasons.

At the end of last year, we spoke with Jemima Villanueva, she shared with us her learnings about ‘wild west’ of carbon offsetting and ways to identify if your investment is having a positive and real impact on our planet.

And to do this properly you need a business tool to measure your impact and investment! Get in touch to find out how the #oracle #epm #cloud #application can help.

Creating and implementing a carbon emissions strategy

Before Christmas we spoke with Jemima Villanueva about her experience creating and implementing a carbon emissions strategy at her workplace.

She offered some great advice on where to start!
‘Your first step (to setting your goal) absolutely has to be measurement’

#thankyou Jemima!
