It provides a flexible planning and budgeting application that’s ready for the Cloud based on a low-cost monthly subscription pricing model. Oracle PBCS includes all the world class budgeting and forecasting features, reporting, and data management capabilities that are used today in Hyperion Planning.
Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service enables organizations of all sizes to quickly adopt world-class planning and budgeting applications with no CAPEX infrastructure investments, driving market-leading functionality beyond finance across the enterprise, with flexible deployment options and virtually no learning curve.
The theme of the Oracle PBCS is “rapid deployment.” It is intended to be a way to get up and running quickly with no IT investment or hassle – and it’s up and running as quickly as you can enter a credit card number.
