Oracle-Hyperion Data Relationship Management (DRM) Enables Financial Transformation Initiatives
Greg Briscoe , AdvancedEPM Consulting, Inc.
When: Jun 25, 2013, Session 7 - Vendor Presentations, 9:45 am - 10:45 am
Topic: Vendor Presentation - Subtopic: Vendor Presentation

Financial transformation can open the door to unanticipated projects that can multiply complexity fast. Finance Transformation (FT) is difficult and time-consuming work. Many of the challenges and obstacles faced by FT managers can be negotiated much more easily with the right game plan. One of most important aspects is the maintenance and synchronization of master data throughout the enterprise. Oracle's Data Relationship Management (DRM) software can be used to simplify this process with respect to master data, especially in these highly complex financial transformation projects. DRM helps in the following ways: 1. Enables consistent reporting: Reliance on end user applications to digest intermittent system data extracts leads to questions regarding inconsistency from one report to the other. Reliance on reports generated from governed processes using DRM reduces the inconsistencies experienced. 2. Improved risk management: More trustworthy and consistent financial information improves the business's ability to manage enterprise risk. 3. Improved operational efficiency and reduced costs: Replication of data often is linked to replication of activities associated with managing those data sets. DRM helps to reduce the replication/duplication of those activities. 4. Improved decision making: The information consistency provided by DRM across applications reduces data variability, which in turn minimizes the organizational data mistrust and allows for clearer and faster business decisions. 5. Regulatory compliance: Information auditing is simplified with effective information controls such as SOX compliance. 6. Improved business productivity: DRM helps organizations understand how same data objects are represented, manipulated, or exchanged across applications within the enterprise and those objects relate to business process workflows.

Kyle Hailey , Delphix

Topic: Vendor Presentation - Subtopic: Vendor Presentation

Database virtualization allows the same datafiles to be shared by multiple copies of a source database allowing almost instantaneous creation of new copies of databases with almost no disk footprint. Along with storage inefficiency, database virtualization allows agile management of database copies. Virtual databases can be created, refreshed, rolled back, and deleted in seconds. Virtual databases can be provisioned from any second within the source databases retention window which is typically several weeks. Every developer can have their own full copy of production databases; production databases can have fifty days of backup live online in the space of one backup. Backups can be brought online in seconds, data reviewed or extracted, and the copy removed in seconds. QA teams can go from one test environment to multiple full copies of production database allowing running QA tests in parallel.
