Comments: I use to print reports and look up data details. Pretty easy to use and learn. It's not highly intuitive on things it can do, hard to just "play" with it and learn it. You really need training to get the best out of it.

Comments: Hyperion is full featured but it's a bit complex to master. Formal class or good coaching is needed.

I like the full feature set. I would ask development team to focus on ease of use. I know it's easy to say

Pros: No other EPM tools will suit your financial management or planning needs as Hyperion does

Cons: Support offered by Oracle

Overall: Very few Oracle support engineers have the enthusiasm or knowledge about the Oracle Hyperion products
Oracle wants to sell the Hyperion products but doesn't have appropriate support
Cloud products which have been recently launched are full of bugs
The only silver lining is that the tools are still worth it and would definitely add value to the finance practice in your company
A lot of opportunities in adding or developing new features to the Hyperion suite of products

Pros: Detailed reports are easily saved for future running.

Cons: Sometimes report doesn't print correctly.

Overall: I started using Hyperion the first time as a new employee. I was given minimal training but was able to perform my task with no problem. All tables are functional and efficient to use. My reports generate fast and are easy to be reviewed and approved.

Pros: Ease of usage and functionality.

Cons: The user interface.

Overall: I work with Hyperion during my time as a Data Analyst for the New School. It is not the best BI client out there but it is definitely powerful and I like the ability to have the option to write custom SQL queries.

Recommendations to other buyers: Update the user interface to something modern like Tableau or Pentaho.

Comments: Corporate performance management (CPM) - specifically for budgeting and keeping track of budget allocation and expenditure.

The Hyperion portfolio includes products for financial management, budgeting, planning and forecasting (BP&F), financial reporting, database management, financial consolidation, treasury management and analytics.

Also, It was easy to build integration using Hyperion scripts to integrate with external business reporting systems and executive dashboards.

Pros: Easy to use and powerful.

Cons: Needs 64-bit support--no major updates in years. Oracle just bought it and kept it steady state.

Overall: Just an easy way for users to get introduced to SQL and building queries. Very powerful for regular repeated processes that need to be run and reviewed by business users, especially ones who don't actually have SQL experiences. Only complaint is it seems that Oracle has abandoned really supporting it and promoting it as a product. Haven't seen a meaningful update in years.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you want an easy to use tool for reporting in SQL especially if you have a community of users who need to do that kind of thing but do not have the query writing skills, this is the perfect tool to get them introduced to the process.
