EPM Adoption is Still Very Low

“35% of large enterprises and as much as 65% of


midsize businesses are using spreadsheets or legacy
applications to meet their core management
processes”
Gartner
Magic Quadrant for Corporate Performance
Management Suites, March 2012

Competition
 SAP
– Recent announcement under the EPM OnDemand umbrella
– Expense Insight, Real-time P&L Analysis, Capital Project Planning: These are
adjacent BI solutions, not mainstream EPM applications
 IBM
– Nothing yet
 Pure-play SaaS Vendors: Mainly focused on financial planning and reporting
– Host Analytics: recently hired ex BusinessObjects CMO as their CEO
– Adaptive Planning
– TideMark: ex OutlookSoft folks
– AnaPlan: ex Adaytum folks
