Oracle Enterprise Business Planning Solutions

The networked economy challenges traditional spreadsheets and department-oriented planning mechanisms. Today, effective plans needs to connect the organizational value chain in an integrated manner. Oracle's Enterprise Business Planning solutions enable organizations to link their strategic, financial, and operational plans to achieve both the vertical and horizontal alignment this requires. They allow the linkage of plans across the business, optimization of resources, broadly based consensus and adjustment for risk and uncertainty. This results in plans with an appropriate balance between operational feasibility and financial desirability.
