Why Read This Report

With the market disruption of software-as-a-service (SaaS), advanced analytics, and the customer-centric growth agenda, the vendor landscape for enterprise performance management (EPM) is evolving. The EPM market reflects a historical bias toward finance and deployment of on-premises solutions from large technology vendors (e.g., IBM, Oracle, and SAP). As this market evolves, pure-play SaaS vendors are growing very rapidly, and historically on-premises vendors are responding with SaaS offerings. In-memory data, advanced analytics (e.g., predictive and prescriptive), mobile-ready user experiences, and collaboration are also affecting the solutions landscape. Understanding the market landscape for EPM will enable application development and delivery (AD&D) professional to enable business stakeholders from finance to sales and marketing to optimize and innovate processes that drive business performance and growth. This a revision to prior research covering financial performance management (FPM), which we are adjusting to the market's generally accepted EPM terminology, which aligns better with Forrester's customer-centric business technology (BT) agenda.
