SAP is recognized as a market leader for both its "ability to execute" and its "completeness of vision."
As companies need to decide and act with increasing speed, they should see that all decision-makers are guided by the same game plan and have a full understanding of potential risks involved. The 10.0 release of SAP® BusinessObjects™ enterprise performance management (EPM) solutions fills this need by helping companies align decisions and actions with business aims. The latest release 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.
SAP recently announced support for the SAP® BusinessObjects™ Planning and Consolidation 10.0 application, version for SAP NetWeaver® powered by the SAP HANA® platform. The application dramatically enhances unified planning, budgeting, forecasting and consolidation processes. In line with its mobile-first strategy, SAP also delivered the SAP® Strategy Management mobile app, available on iTunes. The app is a purpose-built mobile EPM solution that enables executives to collaborate on key initiatives while away from the office.
