SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise Performance Management Solutions
Controlling the Future of Your Business
In today's increasingly global and competitive business environment, it's not enough to know where you want your business to go. You must plan faster and do more with potentially less budget and resources. At the same time, you must be incredibly efficient and more precise with every decision, while complying with regulatory requirements.
Being responsible for profitability, growth, shareholder value, strategy, regulatory compliance and investor relations, executives must prioritise strategic goals, modify plans based on financial and operational changes, and empower all stakeholders to make more calculated decisions. Understanding changes to enterprise performance requires monitoring, analysis, risk assessment, timely reporting and action based on information coming from many different parts of the business – including external partners, vendors and customers.
Demonstrating operational success entails closing the gap between strategy and operational execution by cascading corporate goals down into department relevant metrics; ensuring accountability; enabling intuitive modelling, monitoring and analysis; and streamlining the execution of strategy-guided plans. Information needs to be available when your organisation needs it to create a competitive edge and enable greater control of business operations.
