Perficient to Showcase Business Optimization and Cloud Solutions Expertise at Oracle Openworld 2018

The Oracle Platinum Partner will host mini-theater presentations leveraging Oracle Cloud for innovation

SAINT LOUIS (Oct. 22, 2018)Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT) (“Perficient”), the leading digital transformation consulting firm serving Global 2000® and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced it will showcase its expertise in implementing a driver-based rolling forecast model utilizing the Oracle Hyperion Planning application during Oracle OpenWorld 2018, held Oct. 22-25, in San Francisco.

In the customer case study session “Implementing Driver-Based Rolling Forecasts” Perficient will demonstrate how a top cancer research center transformed a traditional annual operating budget process to a more forward-looking driver-based rolling forecast process. Specifically, 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.

“We’ve entered a ‘new’ era within the healthcare industry, one that presents an opportunity for healthcare organizations to revolutionize how they operate, and requires they rethink their approach to budgeting and revenue forecasting in order to achieve their strategic goals,” said Santhosh Nair, general manager of Perficient’s Oracle EPM practice. “In optimizing business systems, processes and technologies utilizing Oracle’s leading EPM Hyperion solution, we helped a leading healthcare organization transform its operational performance, leading to improved revenue models and forward-looking capabilities yielding a more productive workforce.”

Details of Perficient’s demonstration on driver-based rolling forecasts as part of the Real Stories, Real Customers session agenda at Oracle OpenWorld include:
