Enterprise performance management (EPM) systems enable business leaders to drive performance by aligning the entire organization with strategic goals. Linking high level strategies to clearly defined objectives and cascading goals down to specific employees and metrics ensures alignment through the company. Today’s EPM applications provide powerful platforms for CEOs and CFOs to communicate corporate strategies and objectives down to all levels of the organization and to receive real-time indicators on progress toward those targets.
Integrated corporate performance management and business intelligence exponentially multiplies the value of data assets by providing a unified view of the organization and an analysis framework to answer: What would be the impact of a price change? Do I have enough production capacity to achieve my sales targets? How does recent customer activity trend predict future behavior or attrition rates? How much should I budget for warrantee and obsolete inventory costs?
