For us, the change was from Excel based planning to BPC and one of the great attributes of the software was that the interface is similar to Excel, so once the reports were set up, they were easy to run and analyze, even for non-experts.
We were also happy with the ability to standardize our data and inputs across the organization.
As I mentioned, we are a fairly large organization with a complex structure, which meant that standardization of data was important and extremely useful for us, resulting in increased efficiency.
We were also able to gain more control and security over our data with BPC.
The only issue we had, and the reason for a 3 out of 5 star rating, was the ease of configuring reporting.
The logic and script writing is a bit complex, so users have to be fairly experienced to configure reports.
This means that every time a report needs changing require a fairly long lead time to build and test the new report prior to using it in the production environment.
Our planning and consolidation software can help automate and streamline your planning, budgeting, forecasting, and consolidation activities – for shorter budget cycles, a faster close, and improved regulatory compliance.
Make better decisions based on what-if analysis and scenario planning When choosing a system for consolidations, we evaluated BPC along with Hyperion and Cognos.
We are a fairly large organization with a complex organizational structure, which was something that was very important to think about in our decision process.
Ultimately, we chose BPC for our consolidations and ended up adding on planning functionality down the road.
