Board International, vendor of the all-in-one Board decision-making platform, has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Cloud Enterprise Performance Management Software for Planning, Budgeting, and Forecasting 2020 Vendor Assessment*.

In the study, the established IDC MarketScape model is used to assesses vendors that offer cloud-based enterprise performance management (EPM) software for planning, budgeting, and forecasting. Various qualitative and quantitative criteria determine the positioning of providers.

"Modern EPM allows users to plan across business functions and predict the impact of business changes and also allows enterprises to make strategic data-driven decisions,” according to Chandana Gopal, research director, Analytics and Information Management at IDC.

The Board decision-making platform combines full EPM capabilities with business intelligence and predictive analytics in a single, user-friendly, self-service environment. According to the IDC MarketScape*, “Board offers a comprehensive integrated business planning solution, and enterprises that use its full potential are able to see a great return on their investment.”

Increasingly unpredictable markets and a step change in remote working habits have made it essential for organizations to plan, budget, and forecast more rapidly, frequently, and flexibly than ever before. It is here that a comprehensive, cloud-based EPM solution comes into its own, and I am delighted to see that Board has been recognized by the IDC MarketScape as a leader in the field. By unifying EPM capabilities with business intelligence and predictive analytics, Board delivers the 360° visibility needed to remain competitive and responsive in turbulent times and beyond,” comments Giovanni Grossi, CEO and Co-Founder of Board International.
