BPM Partners Opens Tenth Annual BPM Pulse Survey: Budgeting, Forecasting, Analytics, Financial Consolidation

STAMFORD, CT -- (Marketwire) -- 01/15/13 -- BPM Partners, the leading independent authority on Business Performance Management (BPM) solutions, has opened its tenth annual survey on Business Performance Management, the 2013 BPM Pulse™ Survey. The survey collects information from end users about their experience with performance management applications, technologies, and vendors. Participants receive the final survey results and can use the report to benchmark their own projects.

The BPM Pulse identifies important trends in the market and reviews the major vendor solutions from a user perspective. This year, the BPM Pulse survey will spotlight top trending topics including:

  • Scenario modeling
  • Continuous forecasting
  • Spreadsheet replacement
  • Mobile access, operating systems, devices
  • True cloud vs. single-tenant hosted
  • Profitability optimization
  • Disclosure management

Over the last decade, the BPM Pulse has always provided the most comprehensive customer-based view of the Business Performance Management market. It is the only survey of its kind that looks at both the business applications as well as the technology aspects of performance management. In the first few years, the Pulse focused on measuring the levels of industry acceptance and emerging best practices. Today the report details user experiences with specific vendors and solution providers. Last year's BPM Pulse results report had special sections on budgeting, reporting, collaboration, and the cloud.

"As new trends emerge, and impact usage and results, the annual BPM Pulse Survey offers both historical perspective and the most up-to-date advice on how to best utilize these important business tools," said Craig Schiff, founder and CEO of BPM Partners. "The BPM Pulse allows organizations to gauge their progress and plan for the next stages in their implementations."

BPM project champions, executive sponsors and team members can go to BPM Survey Central to participate in the 2013 study and reserve their copy of the detailed results. An executive summary of the 2012 Pulse results is now available in the BPM Whitepapers section of BPM Partners' site. In light of recent events in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, BPM Partners will also make a donation to a related charity for each of the first 500 responses.
