CheckPoint Consulting, a Platinum level member of Oracle Partner Network (OPN), announced that it has achieved OPN Specialized status for all of its consultants in Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service (PBCS). 

Oracle PBCS is a flexible planning application based on Oracle Hyperion Planning™ that supports enterprise wide planning, budgeting and forecasting in a cloud-based deployment model. PBCS removes the barriers to adoption of on-premise applications and helps organizations deploy a first-class planning and budgeting solution in a matter of weeks, not months.

"This is a very significant achievement for our organization. We are not aware of any other partner that has ALL of their consultants specialized on a product – this is indeed a rarity and I am very proud we can bring this expertise to our customers," commented Deanna Sunde, Practice Leader, Planning, Forecasting and Business Analytics at CheckPoint. "With this team of fully PBCS certified consultants, we are positioned to exhibit the agility of Oracle PBCS. Coupled with our new Oracle Cloud Solutions program we can help clients achieve the benefits of planning and budgeting in the cloud in an accelerated timeframe."

To achieve the OPN Specialization, CheckPoint was required to have a team of support and implementation consultants pass through a certification and testing process. "We are excited to be recognized by Oracle for our focus of delivering financial planning solutions that help our client's reach strategic goals. Additionally, with PBCS, we are confident that our implementation services will benefit companies of all sizes to leverage Hyperion solutions, simplify their planning process, reduce budgeting cycles, and increase visibility into business performance," said Deanna Sunde.

CheckPoint Consulting has five specializations, each required certified implementation specialists on board. The specializations attained are:

  • Oracle Hyperion Planning
  • Oracle Essbase
  • Oracle Hyperion Financial Management
  • Wholesale Distribution
  • Consumer Goods

It is an exciting quarter for CheckPoint. In addition to reaching the OPN Specialized status, Deanna announced that she will run for the ODTUG Board of Directors. Deanna is looking forward to shaping the future of ODTUG and influencing Oracle and its products. To cast your vote for Deanna visit:
