Session Summary for Attendees:  This session is a case study about how Opus Group® leveraged Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service (PBCS) to create a custom project-driven financial planning solution that is used for short- and long-term capital, revenue, margin, and expense planning. This PBCS application incorporates key concepts required for financial planning from the real estate and construction industry, such as project capital structure and equity, capital roll-forwards, rolling forecasts, and revenue recognition by different capital structures. The session will include a live demo to illustrate how the planning model integrates a project-level proforma to short- and long-term capital and P&L planning tools, to generate a variety of financial reports.
