Business Challenges


To reconcile and manage data and metadata which resides in the Oracle ERP and other reporting/transaction system using EXCEL/Spreadsheets


There is no true Ad Hoc, drill down analysis that can be performed due to the manual nature of the forecast and budget processes


Integration is quite complex - Budgeting & Forecasting and Actuals come from different sources


Drill-down capability and analysis to Oracle sub-ledgers

The Solution

  • Jade Global’s accelerators and agile-hybrid methodology helped Sunflower teams identify the required metrics and potential executive dashboard designs
  • Design & build (ETLs and Data Models) and deployed Custom Reporting solution by Integrating Budget/Forecast and Actuals (FP&A Reporting) with Currency Translations and PBCS based Scenarios
  • Created multiple data-models from scratch to perform historical and drill-down analysis based on single and multiple source data
  • Published multiple Financial Income Statement Reports based on FSG structures and Aging Reports


  • Helped their IT road map to Cloud Reporting
