Oracle Hyperion

Strategize, plan, execute and then repeat. It’s the winning formula for optimization and profit growth. This formula is not new and has been actively practiced using methodologies such as the Balanced Scorecard and Six Sigma. Such methodologies are built on the principle of using a set of analytical processes to measure and manage company performance. As business processes became highly automated, the amount of data generated begins to exceed the capacity to effectively capture and analyze performance. Today, most companies use spreadsheets at a minimum or, in addition, a set of business applications for performance management and business intelligence.

The Oracle Hyperion Suite of Enterprise Performance Management applications allow businesses to effectively integrate and proactively manage and measure their goals, strategies and execution. These Enterprise Performance Management applications run on a unified performance management platform using the Oracle Business Intelligence foundation.

VST will take the lead to help you build and execute your enterprise performance management solution from the strategic roadmap through implementation and post-production support. And, with a strong background in enterprise applications such as Oracle E-Business Suite, OBIEE and Oracle Hyperion, VST is highly qualified to fully integrate your Oracle Hyperion system with other applications across your company.
