Planning & Forecasting

Planning and Forecasting Disciplines

As the amount of available data has exploded, companies today are dealing with ever increasing, almost dizzying amount of information. Too many organizations are overwhelmed by the surfeit of data making the concept of paralysis through analysis a true risk. PARC excels at helping you reduce complex models into clear, concise and actionable steps. This allows you to consistently follow your strategic vision.

Too often companies have invested resources into enabling technology for financial planning activities without leveraging this investment in other departments. PARC has the broad experience to push the discipline, processes and supporting technology beyond the Finance department. Establishing a single planning platform across departments helps to eliminate silos and align strategic and financial goals across the entire enterprise.

Block Creation in Essbase – Part 2

The previous post ended with a discussion on using DATACOPY to create blocks. I stated that it was my preferred method of making sure the right blocks were created for use. However, we may run into a situation requiring an “IF” test to determine when we create the blocks. In this situation, we cannot use DATACOPY as it is not syntactically valid inside an IF test.
