An EPM Enterprise Cloud Service instance allows you to deploy and use one of the supported business processes. To deploy another business process, you must request another EPM Enterprise Cloud Service instance or remove the current business process. The business processes that you deploy share the same identity domain to facilitate user management and assigning of roles. Access to resources belonging to a business process is individually controlled for each business process.

The EPM Enterprise Cloud Service allows you to deploy the following business processes.

Planning

EPM Enterprise Cloud Service supports custom Planning, module-based Planning, and Free Form planning to deliver instant value and greater productivity for business planners, analysts, modelers, and decision-makers across all lines of business of an enterprise.

Custom Planning facilitates creation of a streamlined process-driven custom solution. Module-based Planning comes bundled with pre-packaged Capital, Financials, Projects, Strategic Modeling, and Workforce modules.

Free Form Planning helps you to create an unrestricted free form dimension solution using an Essbase outline file. Additionally, EPM Enterprise Cloud Service supports the use of the Groovy scripting language to customize business rules in the Planning business process.
