Business Intelligence & EPM Forum

Business Intelligence & EPM Forum

As companies continue to shift their focus from operational based processes to management based excellence, the successful deployment of enterprise performance management and business intelligence applications more critical now then ever. So what does enterprise performance management and business intelligence entail? Well simply put it involves obtaining access to critical business data from various sources and taking the necessary action to improve company performance. Also, it facilitates the support of your critical management based processes such as producing consolidated results, external reports to the street, as well as a meaningful plan and/or forecast. The BI & EPM Forum was started in April 2004 as a means to facilitate discussions, education, and training around the Oracle EPM and BI suite of applications which includes:

  • OBIEE
  • Oracle BI Applications
  • Hyperion Planning
  • Hyperion Financial Management
  • Essbase

Our focus for future upcoming events is to provide excellent content as well as an opportunity to network with fellow BI & EPM colleagues not only for technical advice but for career advice as well. The BI & EPM Forum members represent a very diverse set of developers, managers, consultants, and end users.
