Oracle Hyperion Planning is a web-based budgeting and planning solution, driving collaborative, event-based operational planning processes throughout the organization for a wide range of financial and operational needs. It gives web users the ability to enter, analyze, and report on data, manage the planning process, and personalize data entry forms.
Planning is a comprehensive approach for the complete and closed-loop planning process that drives continuous business improvement. With Planning, all decision makers and front-line managers can communicate which course of action to take and get budget holders to collaborate so that the planning process is optimized and efficient. When a material event occurs that causes a change in direction, planners have the flexibility to adapt rapidly, ensuring that plans are relevant and useful.

Using ad hoc grids—focused data slices—in Smart View, you can also perform ad hoc analysis. See the Oracle Hyperion Smart View for Office User's Guide for information on all Smart View functionality.
Enables you to enter and analyze data using Offline Planning when you are disconnected from the Internet—for example, on airplanes or in hotel rooms—and later save the data back to the Planning server. (The administrator must enable this feature for the application.)
