Align Performance Management for Greater Business Impact

More and more companies are using modern business performance management (BPM) systems to drive profitable growth. Our research shows that when a BPM program is supported by BI and advanced analytic capabilities that enable high-quality business performance measurement and management, organizations find that they are three times more likely to achieve high levels of improved business perrformance than companies who lack a cohesive approach to BPM and business analytics.

While the idea of driving business performance is nothing new, modern BPM systems offer greater efficiency and effectiveness in developing forecasts, plans, and budgets.  Equally important, BPM systems provide scorecards and dashboards that continually monitor and measure multiple key aspects of business performance.  When variances occur – as they always do – modern analytics allow leaders, managers, and analysts to quickly get to the root causes of the problem and then accurately predict the financial and operational outcomes of different potential corrective action plans.  Together, BPM and analytics make companies more informed and more agile – and they empower business people to gain greater control of business performance.
