Hubble is an integrated financial performance management solution software. It can be deployed on-premise and is also available as a cloud-based solution. This product features applications for financial reporting, analytics, planning and closing.
In Hubble’s financial reporting application, users have access to pre-built templates for multiple industries including manufacturing, distribution, human capital management, homebuilder, real estate and construction, or they can create their own custom reports over any of their ERP data. All users in the system can see the same information, updated in real-time.
Hubble’s financial analytics application includes customizable dashboards. Users choose what information they would like to see on their dashboards. You can access these dashboards anytime, anywhere. The planning application lets users see actuals next to budgets, providing an up-to-date view of their business as well as forecast ability for such areas as Payroll, Capital Depreciation, Sales, and Inventory.
This solution offers real-time reconciliations, consolidations, and allows users to close month end faster. Users can create their own reports, so they don’t have to wait for IT support. Hubble monitors reconciliation issues throughout the month.
Hubble is designed for businesses using Oracle E-Business Suite and JD Edwards. Its on-premise deployment is compatible with Windows systems. It is priced either on a perpetual license or subscription basis.
Hubble has allowed us to create and run many reports which would previously require IT resources and time to create. In addition, the reports are not a batch process where you have to go to one place to run the report and then another to retrieve it. They are easily exported to Excel.
We have used Hubble for creating many exception reports which allows us to identify the transactions or records which have issues and concentrate on correcting these instead of spending hours sifting through data.
We have also created integrity reports to compare subsystems such as the item ledger to the general ledger. This has reduced the time close the books at month end.
The flexibility in filtering, formatting and the ability to create formulas. In addition, there are templates to compare different tables for integrity of the data.
It is also easy to export data to Excel or PDF. You can even include a company logo in your PDF reports.
The scheduler allows you to setup reports to run at any interval you prefer. These can be e-mailed, saved to a location or both.
Each users needs a separate license but you can implement the scheduler program to e-mail reports. For example, if you have a person who needs a report once a week you can set this up on the scheduler so the report is e-mailed without having to buy a new license. I do prefer the model of concurrent licenses where all JD Edwards users could use the product but it is limited to a certain amount of users at one time.
Our Hubble experience has been top notch from installation, training, startup and support. We were an Insight Reporting customer with a business requirement for management dashboards and customer portal access. After we saw the product we were sold that this product would allow us to meet both requirements with minimal effort from startup, training and deployment. We are extremely pleased with the decision we made and it has allowed us to move from a reactive to a proactive business.
Very easy to use and even easier to train the end users on. We can typically complete an end user training session in less than an hour. The ability to present information using charts or graphs in an industry that is report or spreadsheet driven has been a real eye opener for our management, as well as our customers. In a matter of seconds they can quickly see information totaled or subtotaled and presented graphically in a number of ways that previously required custom reports or Excel output. As an early adopter we expected to run into a few things that didn't quite work as expected but these issues were addressed in a timely fashion. From the business perspective the product has exceeded our expectations and we have heard nothing but positive comments from our employees and customers who are using the product.
There is a slight overhead/impact to the Oracle database due to turning on logminer and CDC on the tables we are replicating but nothing significant.
Working in the accounting department, I use Hubble on a daily basis for both standard reports and ad hoc queries. Hubble has saved me countless hours getting the data faster and in the format I need.
Using the built-in calculations I can create reports with variance formulas which are dynamic, so I can easily switch between ledger types, periods, etc. and it just works. In addition, I can create hierarchies to summarize rows as I like. For example, you can group all your travel and entertainment accounts together in one summary line. There are many other useful features such as aging, time series, conditional formatting and more. Many of these can be shared so you only build it once.
One of the best uses we have found is to create daily exception reports for data which is missing or wrong. Missing price on a sales order, wrong G/L class code, negative inventory quantities are just few which we use. The reports can be combined into a pack so you only have to open the pack and run it to produce all the contained reports.
One of the best things about Hubble is that a user can do all of this and you do not have to depend on IT to write or change a report.
Overall, Hubble has been the best tool to make our department more efficient with JD Edwards.
Ease of use and speed.
Thank you Greg for you review of Hubble! So happy to hear Hubble is making your organization more efficient with JD Edwards!
Ease of use, speed in preparing and running reports.
The ability to combine data from multiple tables, put in our own calculations and groupings so we don't have to do this in Excel is fantastic. It has saved a lot of time for the reporting staff and has made our reporting a lot for flexible.
Being able to build and publish reports for others to use has saved our regional finance staff from having to manually combine multiple reports in Excel to get what they want.
When setting up a report and then making it available to someone who doesn't have a developer license (i.e. just a console or read-only license) we have to manually add all the report filters in again. It would be much easier if the developer filters appeared automatically and we could then just take out the filters the read-only users didn't need to change.
I use this software so much for month end analysis and any ad hoc reporting or analysis I need, I don't know how I ever managed without it. Instead of spending time dumping data, I can focus my efforts on the analysis, where I can add real value.
It is flexible. I have not come across a request for information/analysis that I have not been able to extract and complete using the Hubble software.
Not specifically about the software, but the fact our company has not purchased more modules for us to utilize. As an add-on tool, it takes a separate task for audit review. So we are limited in the ability to use it in more areas, since it would require a separate audit review.
