Title: What are the top technology trends for organizations moving forward into 2019 and beyond – David Spaker, VP-EPM Practice
Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) software helps you analyze, understand, and report on your business. EPM refers to the processes designed to help organizations plan, budget, forecast, and report on business performance as well as consolidate and finalize financial results (often referred to as “closing the books”). EPM solutions are primarily used by CFOs and the office of finance, while other functional areas, such as HR, sales, marketing, and IT, use EPM for operational planning, budgeting, and reporting.
While often tied to enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, EPM software complements ERP by providing management insights in addition to top of operational data. In other words, ERP is about operating the business—the day-to-day transactional activity—and EPM is about managing the business—analyzing, understanding, and reporting on the business.
