Nucleus Research CPM Value Matrix 2020

The corporate performance management (CPM) market continues to heat up. Planning is not optional for any company, regardless of size and financial status, and the ability to adhere to a plan in the face of external forces is critical to long-term success. Most CPM vendors have not limited themselves to only planning, while solutions have expanded to cover areas such as financial close, risk management, and business intelligence capabilities. Furthermore, CPM Solutions must also be approachable for non-finance employees as vendors look to address the needs of strategic and operational applications, beyond the traditional Financial Planning & Analytics scope.

The Value Matrix places vendors into four categories: 

  • Leaders
  • Experts
  • Facilitators
  • Core Providers

For this Value Matrix, Nucleus evaluated CPM vendors based on their usability and functionality, as well as the value customers realized from each product’s capabilities. The research is intended to serve as a snapshot of the CPM technology market, help inform customers about how vendors are delivering value, and take stock of what can be expected in the future based on present investments.
