New iXBRL Support Speeds Compliance with New Regulatory Requirements

  • To enable compliance with new UK financial reporting standards, Oracle Hyperion Disclosure Management now includes support for iXBRL.
  • A replacement for paper-based reporting, iXBRL was adopted by the HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) as the UK standard for tax filings starting in April 2011.
  • With this functionality included within Oracle Hyperion Disclosure Management, organizations can now produce their tax filings in-house using Microsoft Office and other desktop productivity applications, link directly to the EPM and ERP applications, perform iXBRL tagging, and submit their filings to HMRC.
  • This application helps companies save time, effort and resources while improving the accuracy and timeliness of financial filings with reduced dependency on outsourced services.

PeopleSoft Enterprise Integration Simplifies Financial Close and Reporting Processes

  • Oracle Hyperion Financial Close Management centralizes and helps automate the management of all period-end close activities, replacing manually maintained checklists with dynamic dashboards that give users the ability to immediately view and act on information.
  • With Oracle Hyperion Financial Close Management, customers can orchestrate all of their end-user activities, schedule or run processes from PeopleSoft Financials as well as other ERP systems, and track manual processes from one easy to use business application.
