New Deployment Options, Less Dependence on IT, and Need for Vendor Agility Call for New Approaches to Enterprise Performance Management Selection Process
Tagetik, a visionary leader in global performance management software solutions, will host the webinar "An Accelerated Approach to EPM Software Selection," the latest presentation in Tagetik's popular Progressive CFO™ series on Wednesday, June 1, from 11:00 to 11:30 a.m. Eastern Time/ 5:00 to 5:30 p.m. Central European Time. Guest speaker Paul Hamerman, vice president and principal analyst for Forrester Research, will discuss why finance teams need to move beyond traditional RFPs for enterprise performance management (EPM) selection processes and will highlight selection considerations to improve decision-making.
Dave Kasabian, chief marketing officer of Tagetik, will direct the conversation. The 30-minute interview will touch on these and other topics:
- How new technologies and deployment options are changing the EPM landscape;
- How the increasingly strategic demands on the office of finance must factor into the selection process;
- Why RFPs frequently result in unreliable outcomes and favor mature vendors over market innovators;
- New, more agile approaches to evaluating EPM vendors.
Hamerman has been an industry analyst for Forrester for 13 years and specializes in finance and HR enterprise applications. He has 30 years of overall experience in research and advisory services, management consulting, and systems integration. He is a certified public accountant (CPA) and a certified management accountant.
"Finance needs are shifting from batch to real-time, from retrospective to predictive, and from numeric to visual. Therefore, EPM software selection must shift from a static, functional orientation to one that identifies solutions that can truly enable business growth and agility," said Kasabian. "RFPs were developed by IT when IT 'owned' all system selections and operations. But today's EPM solutions are best owned and governed by the office of finance. Therefore, selections should be based on current and projected business needs, not historical IT priorities."
