Oracle has made some changes to the EPM Cloud Service and our clients have asked what that means for them. The information below clarifies these changes to Oracle EPM products and pricing.

Why is Oracle Changing EPM Cloud?

Customers can now pay a single price per user and will have the ability to expand features whenever required to meet changing business needs.

The New Oracle EPM Product Names, Bundles, and Pricing

Oracle has opted for names that reflect the functions and business processes" they solve. The new bundle and pricing model aims to provide more value and integration between business processes.

The NEW Oracle EPM product names are related to business processes.

  • PBCS and EPBCS are Oracle Planning
  • FCCS is Oracle Financial Consolidation and Close
  • ARCS is Oracle Account Reconciliation
  • EPRCS is Oracle Narrative Reporting
  • PCMCS is Oracle Profitability and Cost Management
  • TRCS is Tax Reporting
  • EDMCS is Enterprise Data Management

Oracle EPM Product bundles are available in 3 SKUs

Oracle has consolidated all EPM products into 3 SKUs. The Oracle EPM products are no longer sold separately. However, Enterprise Data Management is sold separately.

How Do the Changes in the Products and Licensing Impact Our Customers?

  • The strategy is to stay on the current license agreement until expiration and then transition to the new solution
  • Migrate to the license and cancel the existing agreement
  • Use LCM Life cycle Management to migrate the existing objects to the new Cloud environment. This is the more common strategy. This would require a full retest of all the rules, formulas, and performance.
  • Customers already using EPM solutions ($120 per user per month), such as ARCS, FCCS, and PBCS, will have to pay a premium post-license expiry.


The EPM solutions require strategy, implementation, and alignment of your business processes.
