Gartner® Market Guide for Cloud Extended Planning and Analysis Solutions

Cloud xP&A is a maturing approach to enterprise planning — consolidating both packaged financial and operational planning solutions on a single vendor platform. Application leaders can look to these vendors to enable continuous enterprise-wide planning and collaboration.

According to this Gartner® Market Guide for Cloud Extended Planning and Analysis Solutions, released in July 2022, "through 2024, 30% of FP&A implementations will be extended to support operational finance processes, with 50% requiring a substantial cloud xP&A roadmap from their FP&A vendors."
