End to end project delivery is what we do best. It’s where we have gained our experience over the many years we have been working with Hyperion EPM. During this time we have led and successfully delivered projects in small organisations with a rapid delivery time, to large global multi-national corporations, with multiple phases over a number of years. We have also delivered projects in countries all over Europe and the US. We have also used our on-premise experience in delivering cloud solutions in days rather than weeks.
Over the years we have adopted a standard framework to our full lifecycle project delivery. This framework brings together standard IT project methodology with our own input into how to successfully deliver these products and meet your core objectives.
If your current solution is not meeting your performance expectations, then we can help. With years of practical experience delivering and tuning EPM solutions, Absolute EPM have experience in addressing the most common performance issues that organisations face. Many times we have been able to tune applications that have challenged even the “more experienced” consultants. Also with the move to the cloud with Oracle PBCS, it's more important that your application is performing at it's potential.
How about you contact us for a free no obligation one day assessment of your application, where we will assess whether there are any potential improvements that can be made. The assessment will provide you with an estimate of the amount of effort required to achieve those benefits and also the business benefit that will be achieved. If we fail to provide any benefits in the time spent, then you will not be charged.
If don’t feel that you getting the most out of your solutions or that your application doesn’t support your finance processes very well, then we can help.
Drawing on our many years of experience of delivering successful EPM solutions and using our best practice techniques, we can provide your organisation with a full application review and help you maximise the potential of your current application.

Absolute EPM's 5D Methodology
The primary objectives of the define phase is to successfully set out the project roadmap, scope, business/technical requirements and key business objectives of the new solution. A proven approach will be used to capture the information with the end goal being that both the business and project implementation team understand both the functional and technical requirements prior to moving into the design phase.
This phase matches the technology features and capabilities to the detailed business requirements through prototyping and design workshops. The key output from this phase is the Technical Design Specification and the Application Setup Documentation, there will also be a prototype developed that the users would have seen and accepted prior to starting build
This phase is where the development of the application as per the system design takes place. One of the key components though is that throughout the phase there is regular business review and acceptance back to the agreed requirements.
This is where the users are delivered an application ready for them to train on, test and accept based on the business core objectives. This is carried out by the execution of the test plan such that the application matches the business requirements and objectives.
This phase is where the application is finally released into production and post-project support is provided to enable a smooth user transition.
Throughout the process there is continuous business
review and acceptance back to agreed requirements
