Thursday, November 2nd, 12:00 PM EDT
Webinar


Register Online >

Are you an old-school, on-premise Oracle Essbase customer who’s accustomed to using Essbase for analysis outside of your “traditional” Oracle EPM (Hyperion) applications like Planning, HFM, HSF, etc.? Did you hear that Essbase is moving to the cloud and are you wondering what this means for Essbase improvements and changes how you use and license Essbase today? Are you looking to extend Essbase analytics using one of Oracle’s newer business analytics / BI solutions like Data Visualization (DV) or BI Cloud Service (BICS)? Finally, have you heard that Essbase is now part of Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) and are you wondering what this all means? If so, this webinar is for you.

Join the Performance Architects team to learn all about Essbase in the cloud…what it means, what it does, and how it’s different than the on-premise Essbase we all know and love.

Higher Education Profitability (!) and Cost Analysis Best Practices: Yup, We Called a Spade…a Spade
Monday, December 4th, 12:00 PM EST
Webinar


Register Online >

We all know there’s a gigantic elephant in the room that no one wants to address…higher education organizations are, by and large, mission-driven and don’t want to talk about the “profitability” of classes, professors, student groups or lines of business. Unfortunately, in this day and age of declining federal, state and local funding; shifting student demographics and needs; and a fast-evolving competitive market, institutions can’t afford to pretend the elephant isn’t there. Join the Performance Architects team to learn:

  • How to think from a profit and cost analysis standpoint without jeopardizing your institution’s mission and vision 
  • What types of analysis are being used by the most progressive institutions in this arena 
  • How to use software solutions to jumpstart your profitability and cost analysis efforts 
  • How other institutions have organized for success and obtained funding for this type of initiative



Capital Planning Case Studies: Best Practices and Lessons Learned
Wednesday, January 24th, 12:00 PM EST
Webinar


Register Online >

Simply put, capital planning is the process of budgeting for an organization’s longer-term, larger capital expenditures. These expenditures include new projects and ventures, and acquiring or extending the life of assets. Many organizations still perform capital budgeting and forecasting in spreadsheets, which although flexible, is an inefficient and often ineffective process. Join Performance Architects’ experts as we discuss:

  • The most modern and useful types of capital planning investment analyses (e.g., DCF, NPV, throughput, payback, etc.) 
  • What should be available in a market-leading capital planning software solution (either on-premise or in the cloud) 
  • Pitfalls to avoid when rethinking your capital planning process 
  • How capital planning relates to project financial planning

  • Responsibility Center Management (RCM) key concepts and how to implement
