Planning on the Cloud (PBCS)

It is well known that organizations that align resources with strategic priorities through integrated planning, budgeting, and forecasting can substantially improve productivity and profitability. Yet adopting these best practice planning processes is a challenge for businesses.

Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service (PBCS) enables organizations of all sizes to quickly adopt world-class planning and budgeting applications with no CAPEX infrastructure investments, driving world-class functionality beyond finance across the enterprise, with flexible deployment options and virtually no learning curve. New technologies like cloud make it easier to get off of spreadsheets and adopt best practices, such as rolling forecasts and driving the planning process beyond finance to the broader community of line managers.
