Bottom Up/Top Down Budgeting
Budgets are typically either set top-down or bottom-up,
with users entering their budget data either through web-based
forms or through Microsoft Excel, with Essbase then being used
to spread and allocate numbers down the hierarchies or add
them all up after the budgeting process has finished.

How Hyperion Planning is Better than Microsoft Excel
Spreadsheets are certainly a handy tool for running the numbers,
and they are particularly helpful if you want to define business rules
and calculations on-the-fly and automate the planning process using
VBA etc. Where you start to come unstuck though is when you want to
distribute the planning process amongst many users, and where the
planning process goes through many iterations, which becomes
increasingly difficult to control and orchestrate when you’re working
with dozens or hundreds of spreadsheets.
