NEW YORK - Jun 12, 2013
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Infor Corporate Performance Management (CPM) has been recognized as a Leader among corporate performance management applications in Nucleus Research's latest Corporate Performance Management Value Matrix.
"Over the past several years, a new set of capabilities have entered the Corporate Performance Management market that have significantly changed the Return on Investment associated with CPM solutions, including international support, tax management, cloud-based solutions, mobile agents, and application integration," said Hyoun Park, analyst, Nucleus Research. "To understand how these changes have led to value, consider that the value of CPM can broadly be categorized into three different areas: commoditized value, differential value, and rare value. By separating these three value propositions, it becomes much easier to define what separates Leaders from Core Providers."
Vendors in the Leaders quadrant have invested in both functionality and usability features that are likely to deliver the greatest potential returns. These vendors have both diverse and comprehensive product offerings, which enable organizations to maximize ROI, and the resources to help organizations deploy large-scale applications.
"As the business world evolves and changes, it's paramount that technology follow suit," said Darci Snyder, vice president, product management, Infor. "This Leader ranking is a testament to Infor's commitment to innovation and to our customers. We're making sure our partners are receiving the specialized tools they need to integrate strategic processes into a unified whole that provides real-time access to critical business information the second they need it."
Infor CPM delivers critical strategy management, financial consolidation, and reporting/analysis, improving the quality and speed of the planning and budgeting process for an organization.
"Infor's vendor-neutral approach to supporting enterprise data based on pre-built
connectors and its competitive pricing allowed Infor CPM customers to accelerate time-to-value by quickly moving through the sourcing and implementation stages," continued Park.
