Why Read This Report

This report enables application development and delivery professionals and their finance stakeholders to understand the changing vendor landscape for financial performance management (FPM). Complex businesses, and those subject to securities and industry regulation, require agile and robust capabilities to plan, analyze, report, and disclose financial information in near real time rather than relying on periodic reports. The FPM market is quite mature, with significant customer adoption and a substantial presence for megavendors like IBM, Infor, Oracle, SAP, and SAS Institute. New technologies like big data and deployment models such as software-as-a-service (SaaS), however, are spawning upstart competitors to the incumbents, enabling process flexibility, rapid deployment, and embedded analytics. Understanding the market landscape for FPM will enable you to optimize and innovate processes that drive business performance and compliance.
