Discover Narrative Reporting in this product tour.
Work with data that is always current by accessing data directly from Oracle and non-Oracle sources. This includes spreadsheets, Hyperion EPM applications, Oracle Cloud EPM applications, Oracle Cloud Financials, Oracle Analytics content, and native databases.
No need to recreate existing reports. You can bring in your current Microsoft Word and PowerPoint or PDF-based narrative reports, as well as Excel-based reports through a consistent and controlled process.
Help provide context to the numbers by combining financial statements and data with textual narrative in a single report.
Speed up the reporting process. Narrative Reporting comes equipped with a report writer that lets you bring in charts and grids sourced from Oracle Cloud EPM, Oracle Cloud Financials, and Oracle Essbase.
Bring in subject matter experts across your organization to work on report sections, providing the most accurate information available. Users only contribute to sections of the document that they have permission to access.
No need to worry about version control during review cycles. Users review and comment on their individual report sections based on access privileges. Users with equal access levels can collaborate on the report content and create conversational threads that carry forward through the entire review cycle.
Use the process flow to approve report sections and monitor overall report completion status on mobile or web. Gain visibility of changes and contributions throughout the creation of the report with a full audit trail.
Bring in efficiencies by rolling over previous reports to reuse common content from period to period and take advantage of centralized maintenance of common dates, text, and data.
