SAINT LOUIS (June 5, 2018) – Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT) (“Perficient”), a leading digital transformation consulting firm serving Global 2000® and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced it will serve as a silver sponsor and demonstrate its expertise in the Oracle Hyperion EPM suite at ODTUG Kscope18, the premier Oracle Developer Conference, held June 10 – 14 in Orlando. During Kscope18, Perficient will present the strategic implementation of a driver-based rolling forecast model utilizing the Oracle Hyperion Planning application for a leading healthcare provider.
In a time of rapid market changes, increasing costs and rising patient expectations, today’s healthcare organizations need to rethink their approach to business operations – including budgeting and revenue forecasting – in order to achieve their strategic goals. When it comes to driving healthy operational performance, the right systems and technologies can improve revenue models and budget workflows, and lead to a more productive workforce.
“The healthcare industry continues to face ongoing challenges that threaten to disrupt not just business but patient care,” said Santhosh Nair, general manager of Perficient’s Oracle EPM practice. “Our healthcare customers recognize that accurate budgeting and forecasting are critical to better optimizing operations and continually providing their patients proper care.”
“We recently partnered with a top cancer research institute to leverage Oracle’s leading performance management technology solutions. As a result of our efforts, our customer was able to optimize operational performance by improving transparency and identifying correlations between revenue and expense data for all lines of business,” said Nandini Nehru, senior solutions architect, Perficient and the lead architect on the project.
During Kscope18, Perficient’s Nehru will present “Case Study: Implementing a One-of-a-Kind Driver-Based Rolling Forecast Model Using Hyperion Planning with ASO Integration” on June 11, 2018, Session 3, from 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. in Asia 5, Lobby/Third Level. During their session, attendees will learn how Perficient’s client transformed a traditional annual operating budget process into a forward-looking driver-based rolling forecast process. The team will review details of the Oracle Hyperion Planning solution design that supports rolling forecast, target setting at higher levels, and bottoms-up annual operating budgets. Attendees will gain a greater understanding of best practices and dimension design (Entities, Measures, and Attributes) to enable flexible user input and efficient calculations.
