EPM Improves Performance through Enterprise-wide Alignment
Transform strategies into measurable goals that support quick evaluation with Enterprise Performance Management (EPM). CDS EPM solutions enable executives to make changes quickly by providing a real-time picture of organizational performance in relation to defined targets. We align goals, metrics, people and technology to improve performance across your organization.
Our management solutions guide financial and operational decisions, so they progress in the same direction. With globalization, many companies are geographically dispersed, more complex, and difficult to manage. EPM helps address these issues, uniting all components into a single view of your business, so you manage the whole – not pieces. Our management solutions also address the constant onslaught of regulatory compliances, helping companies support transparency when required.
We’ll help you understand your organization’s performance and potential by connecting decision makers to pertinent information drawn from every source throughout your enterprise.
Two basic challenges facing organizations today are at the core of more specific issues:
Leveraging big data – effectively, quickly and reliably
Absence of consistent master data, enterprise information and systems to manage the same
These in turn lead to the following:
Lack of actionable information
Lack of transparency and control
Ineffective management of business processes, performance, and predictability
Inefficient employment of technology models, architectures and coupling
Absence of optimized resource utilization
Complexity and volume of reports
Uncertainty leading to service quality deterioration
