About Enterprise Performance Management
Enterprise performance management (EPM) is a set of processes and software designed to help organizations achieve peak performance by linking strategies to plans and execution. The key processes it includes are planning, consolidation, and reporting of results to internal and external stakeholders. Managing a closed-loop process like EPM can be challenging when organizations are relying on spreadsheets and manual processes. However, with a cloud-based EPM platform organizations can automate key tasks, accelerate financial processes and better align finance with operations. The result is an organization that moves faster, adapts quickly, and stays ahead of the competition.
