SAP Enterprise Performance Management
SAP Enterprise Performance Management (SAP EPM) provides a wealth of solutions, some of them pre-configured, that cover a company’s entire management control cycle (plan-do-check-act).
These are the main building blocks in the SAP EPM portfolio:
- SAP BusinessObjects Business Planning and Consolidation (BPC) includes planning, budgeting, forecasting, and consolidation capabilities.
- SAP BW Integrated Planning (BW-IP) also includes planning, budgeting, and forecasting capabilities.
- SAP BusinessObjects Supply Chain Performance Management (SCPM) is a pre-configured solution that includes 350 KPIs based on the SCOR model and provides end-to-end visibility into the supply chain and supply chain dependencies.
- SAP BusinessObjects Spend Performance Management (SPM) is a pre-configured solution for procurement professionals. It provides them with overviews of direct and indirect spend, shows opportunities for cost savings, and identifies supplier risks.
SAP BusinessObjects Strategy Management (SSM) supports a variety of management practices, uses scorecards, dashboards, and goal diagrams to visualize data, and allows for the detailed analysis of key performance indicators.
SAP EPM products can help companies improve revenue and profitability, reduce costs, and minimize risks by providing them with powerful tools for their planning, budgeting, forecasting, consolidation, and monitoring. SAP EPM users are also better equipped to respond to changes in the global marketplace. SAP EPM products can break the overall business strategy down into operational goals and measures. Results are seamlessly monitored and analyzed to turn them into lessons learned.
