Support isn’t enough. Evolve.
Why? Our thoughts..
- Handling a range of Oracle EPM needs from small tasks to large delivery can be a difficult when technical and financial people cannot communicate effectively
- Retaining Orscle EPM expertise that can address your needs well is hard over the long term
- Often the adoption or incorrect use of Oracle EPM functions can be a root cause, this is usually caused my lack of training or value education
How can this be solved?
The first person to look at your EPM needs must be a Senior Accountant with both technical and financial background. Don’t set for one or the other, you need both.
What does a firefighter do between fighting fires? Not a whole lot. Don’t pay your EPM firefighters when they aren’t fighting fires. Maintain a best in class partner ecosystem.
EPM value, not tasks
Playing whack-a-mole with your EPM problems is time consuming and painful. Tasks, sprints, projects and adoption efforts should each have their own approach. Clearly define the difference and see them all handled as such.
