Bring Your Own Machine Learning Model...Why Would Anyone Want to Do That?

This session will closely examine how Finance can take advantage of machine learning (ML) models in Oracle EPM. We will tackle the stigma that machine learning (ML) models are too technical and are outside of the skillset of financial planning and analysis professionals. We’ll explore how attendees can identify existing industry models to fit certain financial planning use cases.

We will focus on the following topics during the session:
• Import an externally trained ML model
• Map ML model to planning
• Auto-generate a groovy focused business rule
• Attach the business rule to a planning webform
• Test the machine learning model via planning
We’ll show attendees how they can take advantage of these potentially endless possibilities.
