Hyde Housing Enhances Control for Budget Review Process and Supports Better Decisions with Oracle Cloud.


Hyde, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2017, provides homes at prices people can afford to buy or rent on long tenancies in London, the south east and the east of England. Hyde puts a roof over the heads of people who otherwise would not have one, providing them with easy to-use modern landlord services. Hyde Housing is one of the largest UK providers of social housing in London.


On premises Hyperion Planning, implemented in 2010, was an old version and fast approaching end of support. Performance was degrading due to ageing infrastructure and the application had not being optimised for Hyde’s evolving business requirements. IT was embarking on an IT rationalization and cost reduction initiative throughout Hyde Housing. Watch to see how different visualisations draw out important actionable insights from the underlying data in a way that traditional data tables and KPIs would not. 

  • Lack of user adoption and support for the system due to degraded performance.
  • Time taken to load data and adjustments delaying users from meeting deadline.
  • Users losing faith in on-premises Hyperion Planning due to performance and stability.
  • System performance not allowing users to report and analyze at required granularity.
  • Risk of being on an unsupported version of on-premises Hyperion Planning.
  • Under pressure to reduce IT support costs due to company-wide IT rationalization program.
  • Used the migration from on-premises to the cloud to redesign the application removing unwanted hierarchies and data making it more suitable for today’s business requirements.
  • Resulted in a more streamlined application, reducing reports from 40 to 10. This resulted in users having more confidence in the system by having more accurate information.
  • Loading of adjustments reduced from hours to minutes resulting in less time doing admin tasks and more time analyzing data.
  • Using Qubix Cloudbridge, the data upload frequency was automated and reduced to 30-minute intervals from 2 hours (and the duration was reduced from over an hour to less than 5 minutes) which resulted in reporting deadlines being easily met.
  • The environment was a lot more stable and performant resulting in user confidence, more users using the system and reduction in time for budgeting and reporting.
  • A reduction from 8 servers to a cloud-based system reducing total cost of ownership and removing reliance on IT.

Why did Hyde choose Oracle Cloud?

"Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud is far more robust, stable and easier to manage than our old on premise solution. Having the monthly updates is great. Knowing we can rely on it is brilliant."
