Innovation has been at the core of OneStream’s approach since the very beginning, driven by its founders who have a long history of financial software innovation. Before co-founding OneStream, Tom Shea, a veteran of the financial reporting software industry, founded UpStream which was acquired by Hyperion and became the Hyperion Financial Data Quality Management (FDQM) product. OneStream co-founder Bob Powers, invented, architected, implemented, and led the development organization for Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) in addition to leading development for all financial applications at Hyperion.
It is this deep background in financial system engineering combined with a chance to do it all over again that spurred the development of OneStream. Having learnt what worked and didn’t quite work the first time around, the founders sought to overcome many of the commonplace barriers to smooth financial reporting and planning in sophisticated organizations by using their formidable domain knowledge to create a completely fresh approach.
In this innovation showcase we highlight just three areas, namely, how Prophix extends the reach of CPM beyond the finance function; how it uses natural language processing, AI and Machine Learning to ‘humanize’ the user experience and, finally, its approach to enabling successful finance transformation.showcase we highlight three major innovations, namely; Extensible Dimensionality®, the XF MarketPlace, and what OneStream calls “Smart CPMTM” (corporate performance management).
