Oracle Crystal Ball is the leading spreadsheet-based software suite for predictive modeling, forecasting, simulation, and optimization.A more realistic and accessible way of modeling uncertainty in your existing spreadsheets, Crystal Ball delivers the increased realism necessary for improving your confidence, persuasiveness and credibility. Oracle Crystal Ball EPM Edition is also available for Enterprise implementations; through EPM Workspace you can store your Crystal Ball models in a central repository that can be viewed and shared throughout your system. With Smart View, you can access data from a variety of Oracle EPM products, such as Essbase and Hyperion Planning, and bring that data into Microsoft Excel for further analysis. This EPM data can either be examined independently using the forecasting tools of Crystal Ball or linked into existing Crystal Ball simulation and optimization models. The results of your Crystal Ball analysis can then be sent back to the EPM application, thus completing the forecasting and analysis cycle.
