  • Maximizing the Value of your Finance Team with S.M.A.R.T.

    ARAMARK invested in Oracle® Essbase™, the industry-leading multi-dimensional online analytical processing (OLAP) server that provides a rich environment for effectively developing custom analytic applications and allows  organizations to monitor business performance levels. The solution provides ARAMARK’s Financial Analysts with an in-depth look at business operations and the related impact on financials, as well as an ability to perform ‘whatif’ analysis. In fact, ARAMARK leverages hundreds of reports based on integrated financial and operational planning  models to make strategic decisions every day.

    However, maintaining the reports was impeding the Finance team from delivering the needed analysis to the  business. Instead of leveraging the system to meet the company’s analytical needs, many of their Finance team  members were spending countless hours on daily administration of the system instead of value-added analytical and  business partnering opportunities. Furthermore, these highly valuable resources were also implementing general  maintenance tasks and completing report modifications or enhancements to simply make the system run more  efficiently.

These issues have given rise to a key Business Intelligence practice area known as Master Data Management.
