If you are trying to utilize Oracle’s “suite” of EPM products, you may have noticed something: the products within the suite don’t like each other much. Oracle’s EPM suite was cobbled together from multiple sources: some were built on a Essbase platform and came from acquisitions (PBC, EPC, PCMC, ARC), while others were developed in-house on a Fusion platform (FCCC, EPRC). None of them were built as a truly multi-tenant, cloud-based product. As a result, getting the different components within the same “suite” to talk to each other can be extremely complex and a huge hassle. In some cases, a flat text file must be used for them to communicate to each other. That’s not an integrated platform. That’s complexity that you simply don’t have time for.
In contrast, Host was built from scratch as a unified platform, so Planning, Consolidation, Modeling, and Reporting work together easily and seamlessly. There isn’t any duplication of data or complex synchronization required to maintain a single source of truth for your business.
