SAP has launched a new enterprise performance management (EPM) offerings software that helps companies ensure decisions and actions are aligned with business aims.
The new BusinessObjects 10.0 EPM offering moves EPM best practices beyond the finance department to managers throughout the company, helping people make risk-aware decisions that can positively impact enterprise-wide performance.
The new offering leverages In-Memory Computing technology, enabling more detailed and agile planning scenarios that can increase people’s ability to sense and respond to changes as they occur, said the company.
The new offering features include: BI workspaces with embedded EPM content; delivery to mobile devices and the platforms they run on so that even people on-the-go can gain visibility into how their organisations are performing, analyse different scenarios, update plans and collaborate with colleagues.
Further, the offering features: new bill of materials (BoM) costing to link EPM activities down to the production level; business area scorecards for areas such as CRM, ERP and HR for better alignment across the organisation; and extended capabilities for financial consolidation, including consolidation monitoring, enhanced control and validation capabilities, incremental consolidation and new journal features.
SAP enterprise performance management offerings, vice-president Bryan Katis said the new release of their EPM offerings and analytic applications reinforce their market leadership and bring SAP’s vision for business analytics full circle.
