This session will compare and contrast the different available options Oracle customers have to deploy Oracle EPM. It will break down all Oracle’s cloud offerings, IaaS, third-party hosting, traditional on-premise deployments including Exalytics, and hybrid approaches.

This session will read between all marketing lines and discuss what’s possible and what’s a bit overstated. It will cover differences in functionality, data integration, security, flexibility, and scalability. Finally, we will evaluate the differences in costs, including hardware, software licensing, and ongoing maintenance.

If you are looking to make a decision on how best to deploy, upgrade, or outsource Oracle EPM this is a don’t miss session.
