With Oracle Hyperion Financial Management—part of Oracle’s Hyperion Financial Close Suite —organizations can improve their consolidation and reporting process and reduce internal control risks. Financial managers move from the role of scorekeeper to one of business partner—delivering financial and non-financial analysis that supports strategic and operational management decisions. With purpose-built features, Oracle Hyperion Financial Management is the cornerstone of sustainable compliance frameworks and helps businesses comply with the many different and stringent regulatory reporting regulations.
Oracle Hyperion Financial Management provides enterprise-class functionality and depth in consolidation and reporting. In addition, the module is used and maintained by finance professionals—unlike data warehouse and other enterprise reporting solutions that usually require IT customization and support.

Oracle Essbase is the industry-leading multi-dimensional online analytical processing (OLAP) server, providing a rich environment for effectively developing custom analytic and enterprise performance management applications. By leveraging its self-managed, rapid application development capabilities, business users can quickly model complex business scenarios. For example, line-of-business personnel can simply and rapidly develop and manage analytic applications that can forecast likely business performance levels and deliver “what-if” analyses for varying conditions. Oracle Essbase supports extremely fast query response times for vast numbers of users, large data sets, and complex business models.
Oracle Essbase brings advanced analytics to the business user to enable greater understanding of the business, alignment of resources and improved business results. With the advantage of consistent, subsecond response times, users can interact with the data at the speed-of-thought without support from technical experts. This ability to “converse” with the data — understanding that an answer to one question leads to another — enables business users to better identify and analyze the metrics and relationships that influence performance, and to make better, more informed decisions. Users can share their saved reports, and modify their appearance, or create powerful additional queries as new questions arise.
