Session Summary for Attendees:  Today's planning needs include a need for both structured and unstructured applications. Free-form unshackled planning has its roots in Essbase cubes built in silos which then coexisted alongside structured planning applications. Many SaaS customers on EPM Cloud have eagerly awaited an application construct where they can feel free to plan and model for their custom needs. In the age of big data, today's operations demand large size free-form applications that perform at lightning speeds while scaling across a large number of users.
