Reporting and Analysis

Financial Reporting *

Business people discussing the charts and graphs showing the results of their successful teamwork

One of the greatest challenges confronting businesses today is the need to increase the operational efficiencies of organizations that create and distribute GAAP-compliant financial reports and other highly formatted management reports. Gibney Consulting Hyperion Financial Reporting meets this challenge head-on by generating highly formatted, book-quality financial and management reports.

Deliver the Data
Different financial corporations demand different information in different formats and with different delivery requirements—a reality that can translate into a nightmare if you’ve been tasked with preparing reports to distribute the information. With Gibney Consulting Hyperion Financial Reporting, this doesn’t have to be the case.
Gibney Consulting Hyperion Financial Reporting turns enterprise data into operational insights by creating book-quality financial reports in a variety of formats for a range of audiences. Compliant with all regulations and external requirements, these easy-to-generate reports can be delivered at once or scheduled for later distribution—enhancing your organization’s financial planning, management, and control.
Best of all, this can all be done with minimal involvement from your IT staff. Even the most non-technical users can employ Gibney Consulting Hyperion Financial Reporting to:
• Schedule reports for immediate printing and online delivery
• Send e-mail alerts when reports are ready to view
• Create and save batches of reports in a repository or as HTML or PDF files
• Schedule regular reports (daily, weekly, and so on)
• Create books of related reports

Provide Flexible Output and Delivery
Using Gibney Consulting Hyperion Financial Reporting, you’ll be able to produce boardroom-quality presentations that can be delivered in a variety of formats (including HTML, PDF, Microsoft Office and mobile devices) and distributed either as live data or as static snapshots of data at specific points in time. Employing a standard Web browser, users will be able to interact with your data by changing report selections, page members, and navigation options. In short, all of your vital business information will be disseminated without burdening viewers with the mechanics of the process.

Ensure Timeliness and Accuracy
To produce accurate and timely financial reports, you must be able to draw on the most up-to-date data. Gibney Consulting Hyperion Financial Reporting makes this possible by enabling users to access and analyze data from a variety of sources (regardless of how it’s stored). For example, managers can look into the information stream to view live data, and users can employ an object-oriented design tool to drag-and-drop objects (which are automatically updated as they are changed). A centralized data server ensures that all users and reports draw from “a single version of the truth.”

Access Multidimensional Data
Using Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting, you’ll be able to access Oracle’s Hyperion enterprise performance management multidimensional data sources and Oracle Fusion Financials.

Automate Report Production and Delivery
Gibney Consulting Hyperion Financial Reporting makes it possible for you to generate multiple reports—in a scheduled environment—from single report structures. As a result, your organization will be able to reduce the financial burden of producing costly duplicate reports.

Annotate and Collaborate
You can add text commentary on any report in Gibney Consulting Hyperion Financial Reporting. It works like a “chat room” where end users can collaborate about the report or report contents. Comments can be left in the report or suppressed and a permanent audit trail of the commentary is created.

Financial Close and Disclosure Management

In Gibney Consulting Hyperion Financial Close Management, users can create reporting tasks that execute automatically or by selecting the task manually. In addition, Gibney Consulting Hyperion Financial Reporting can be a source for Gibney Consulting Hyperion Disclosure Management regulatory reporting in Microsoft Word.
