Available in the Azure Marketplace, deFacto Planning integrates natively with Azure-based service offerings that enhance and extend deFacto’s analysis and performance capabilities.

deFacto Planning 4.0 provides a number of significant modernization improvements. New web and mobile interfaces make it easy for business managers to perform financial analytics on any device – mobile, tablet, or computer.

Personalization improvements give users the ability to save personal reports, while new display customization capabilities enable a wider range of personal display configuration options, including dimensions and abbreviations.

deFacto’s high scalability sets it apart from other corporate planning solutions by enabling comprehensive modeling and speedy analytics. deFacto Planning Version 4.0 takes deFacto’s already world-leading scalability to even greater heights.

The New Standard in Corporate Planning

The ground-breaking capabilities that deFaco Planning brings to the market have been recognized by industry analysts, including TEC Research, BPM Partners, Gartner, and 451 Research. TEC Research reported that deFacto was redefining corporate planning while calling deFacto “an advanced and modern enterprise planning solution that is flexible, agile, and powerful.”

deFacto also earned an honored place among BPM Partners’ Core Vendors, just a year after being named Best New Vendor. “deFacto offers powerful real-time modeling and what-if analysis in addition to drill-down and drill-through capabilities,” said BPM Partners President and CEO Craig Schiff, adding that “deFacto is an ideal choice for customers looking for an enterprise-class, modeling-centric corporate planning solution based on Microsoft technology.”

“The new version of deFacto enhances the core capabilities that make deFacto a uniquely powerful corporate planning solution,” said deFacto CEO Bob Bedard. “Besides real-time modeling, what makes deFacto special are its scalability and comprehensive BI, performance management, data discovery, visualization, and predictive analytics in a single business planning platform.”

Unmatched 100% Microsoft Foundation

What distinguishes deFacto from competing solutions is a unique architecture that takes full advantage of Microsoft's Business Intelligence technology. “All the native capabilities of products like Excel, SQL Server, Windows, and SharePoint are available to deFacto customers in the exact same way they were designed to be used,” Bob Bedard explained. “As a result, we can provide our customers with the most powerful business planning product on the market."

“Must-View” Solution Is a Leap Ahead

The new deFacto 4.0 puts greater distance between deFacto and the older generation of corporate planning solutions that have been limited in their modeling, scaling, performance, and predictive analytical capabilities. The leap ahead in design and power of deFacto Planning is what led TEC Research to call deFacto “a player redefining the EPM market and promoting a new era of enterprise performance management.” Created by an experienced team, said TEC, deFacto has drawn on its expertise to provide an EPM solution for the future. The deFacto EPM offering, said TEC, is a “must view” solution.
