Nucleus CPM Technology Value Matrix 2020 - Board is Leader

Board has been positioned in the leader quadrant among other vendors such as Workday, OneStream Software, and Vena Solutions.

“With few vendors offering all-in-one analytical, reporting and financial planning tools, Board is consistently competing with Anaplan and SAP within the enterprise market. Users praised Board’s customer support from initial deployment through daily operations. The vendor allows users to create specialized applications through internal communities, which encourages users to share best practices.”

Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Planning and Analysis Solutions 2019 - Visionary

Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Consolidation Solutions 2019 - Visionary

Board has been ranked “Visionary” in the Gartner Cloud Financial Consolidation Solutions Magic Quadrant

The quadrant examines vendors that support cloud-based Financial Consolidation, including financial reporting, the management of reconciliation, close and disclosure activities, and intercompany transactions.

Organizations are increasingly seeing the benefits of moving from disjointed point solutions to a more centralized approach. Through unified decision-making platforms, management teams are able to empower their employees to analyze, simulate and plan in one place, using the most up-to-date information to ensure informed decisions are made. This is, and always has been, Board’s vision, and I feel that this reflected in our positioning within the quadrants.
