How Oracle’s EPM Can Help with Budgeting and Forecasting
In today’s economic climate companies need to understand the importance of budgeting and strategic planning. Forecasting future cash flows and strategic planning are becoming increasingly more essential. This can be an overwhelming environment for some businesses, but also shows the critical value of proactive situation planning for every organization.
Businesses face many difficult challenges, from tightening budgets to the integration of long-term strategies to cutting expenses. But perhaps the most challenging aspect of making strategic decisions is the necessity of predicting possible outcomes based on current actions. Budgeting and forecasting must be accurate to manage and control company resources.
We see a lot of businesses using spreadsheets to keep budgeted activities in one place. However, these spreadsheets are not a good fit when forecasting needs to be done. Spreadsheets can easily become cluttered, difficult to read, and slow down the review process.
