SC&H Group Leads Largest Deployment of an Oracle EPM Cloud Solution in Oracle’s History

In the following podcast interview, Luke Sinnen, a Director in SC&H Group’s Oracle-Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) and Business Intelligence (BI) Consulting practice, discusses the firm’s recent presentation at Oracle OpenWorld 2016 about leading the largest-ever Oracle EPM Cloud implementation for Hilton Worldwide.

At the enterprise level, cloud computing is transforming operational effectiveness, creating strategic value, and helping today’s global businesses to gain a true competitive advantage.

Many leading global companies are turning to Oracle’s EPM Cloud solutions to address financial budgeting, planning, and forecasting needs. Oracle’s EPM applications, combined with the innovation and simplicity of the cloud, enable companies to drive predictable performance, report with confidence, and connect organizational efforts.

Oracle is a true leader in this space ― with 75 percent of Fortune 100 companies running Oracle Cloud solutions and more than 70 million subscribers running over 33 billion transactions a day.

Hilton Worldwide is one category leader who has gained tremendous benefits from leveraging Oracle’s Cloud solutions. With support from SC&H Group, the global hospitality provider has implemented Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service (PBCS) for nearly 3,000 users worldwide.

As the largest deployment of an Oracle EPM Cloud solution in Oracle’s history, this implementation has transformed how Hilton Worldwide manages its budgeting and forecasting capabilities in support of its record $2.35 billion initial public offering (IPO) in 2013.

Ultimately, SC&H Group implemented a dynamic solution that has dramatically improved forecast accuracy, and is intuitive, easy to use, and scalable – allowing users to focus more on data analysis and trends for enhanced decision making.

This groundbreaking implementation reinforces the strength of SC&H Group’s Oracle-Hyperion EPM and BI Consulting practice, which has achieved Platinum Partner status in the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) Program for the ninth year in a row. Attained annually by less than 2 percent of the partners in the program, SC&H Group’s Platinum Partner status was awarded based on the firm’s in-depth product expertise, track record of customer satisfaction, and history of successful software implementations.

Additionally, SC&H Group has achieved the Cloud Select North America designation within the new Oracle OPN Cloud program. Oracle Cloud Select partners are recognized for delivering services through competency development, committed staffing, business results, and proven success around Oracle Cloud Services.

Ultimately, this case study showcases how any organization can benefit from Oracle EPM Cloud solutions in ways that create long-term operational efficiencies and a competitive advantage.
