Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is enterprise performance management (EPM)?

EPM is a set of processes and methodologies organizations use to monitor, measure, and manage their performance across various functions and departments to achieve strategic objectives.

EPM helps organizations align their activities with strategic goals, improve decision-making, optimize resource allocation, and drive continuous improvement in performance.

While BI focuses on analyzing historical data to gain insights, EPM encompasses a broader range of activities including strategic planning, budgeting, and measurement to drive future performance.

Common challenges in enterprise performance management software implementation include data quality issues, resistance to change, siloed organizational structures, and the complexity of integrating multiple systems and processes.

Success can be measured by improvements in key performance indicators (KPIs), alignment of activities with strategic goals, increased agility in decision-making, and enhanced stakeholder satisfaction.  

Enterprise performance management software helps organizations identify and assess risks, develop mitigation strategies, monitor risk exposure, and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements, thereby enhancing overall resilience and sustainability.

EPM provides tools and methodologies for setting strategic objectives, developing action plans, allocating resources effectively, and continuously monitoring progress toward goals.

EPM enables organizations to optimize budgeting and forecasting processes, identify cost-saving opportunities, allocate resources more effectively, and improve financial transparency and accountability.

Integration with other processes such as strategic planning, budgeting, and operational execution enables organizations to create a more holistic and cohesive approach to performance management, driving greater alignment and efficiency.
