Star Analytics, a financial application process automation and integration software company, will support Oracle’s Fusion Middleware platform with the Star Finance Command Centre. The combined solution greatly reduces the cost and complexity of finance systems for faster and more profitable business decisions.
The Star Finance Command Centre has gained significant traction in the office of the chief financial officer (CFO) with deployments across industries such as manufacturing, financial services, energy and technology. The application improves the reliability, consistency, and timeliness of finance application data through its ability to chain together and automate application processes across an ecosystem of finance applications. By extending its open, pluggable architecture, the Star Finance Command Centre provides additional value by melding with business processes that are managed through the Oracle Fusion Middleware platform and the BPEL Process Manager.
“As a senior finance executive, I’ve seen business planning, analysis, and financial consolidation applications become the heartbeat of the world’s largest and most successful companies,” said Jeffrey Brobst, a Star Analytics advisory board member. “News that we’ve heard recently from mega vendors emphasises that the winds are changing in how businesses view their key financial applications. ERP is no longer the sole source of truth in an organisation. Having used the Star Finance Command Centre and Oracle together in practice, I’ve seen how the ability to automate these disparate financial application processes and platforms is critical to realise full value of finance systems.”
