BPM Partners Opens Tenth Annual BPM Pulse Survey: Budgeting, Forecasting, Analytics, Financial Consolidation

STAMFORD, CT -- (Marketwire) -- 01/15/13 -- BPM Partners, the leading independent authority on Business Performance Management (BPM) solutions, has opened its tenth annual survey on Business Performance Management, the 2013 BPM Pulse™ Survey. The survey collects information from end users about their experience with performance management applications, technologies, and vendors. Participants receive the final survey results and can use the report to benchmark their own projects.

The BPM Pulse identifies important trends in the market and reviews the major vendor solutions from a user perspective. This year, the BPM Pulse survey will spotlight top trending topics including:

  • Scenario modeling
  • Continuous forecasting
  • Spreadsheet replacement
  • Mobile access, operating systems, devices
  • True cloud vs. single-tenant hosted
  • Profitability optimization
  • Disclosure management

Over the last decade, the BPM Pulse has always provided the most comprehensive customer-based view of the Business Performance Management market. It is the only survey of its kind that looks at both the business applications as well as the technology aspects of performance management. In the first few years, the Pulse focused on measuring the levels of industry acceptance and emerging best practices. Today the report details user experiences with specific vendors and solution providers. Last year's BPM Pulse results report had special sections on budgeting, reporting, collaboration, and the cloud.

"As new trends emerge, and impact usage and results, the annual BPM Pulse Survey offers both historical perspective and the most up-to-date advice on how to best utilize these important business tools," said Craig Schiff, founder and CEO of BPM Partners. "The BPM Pulse allows organizations to gauge their progress and plan for the next stages in their implementations."

BPM project champions, executive sponsors and team members can go to BPM Survey Central to participate in the 2013 study and reserve their copy of the detailed results. An executive summary of the 2012 Pulse results is now available in the BPM Whitepapers section of BPM Partners' site. In light of recent events in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, BPM Partners will also make a donation to a related charity for each of the first 500 responses.

"Space Monkey by Vivent Smart Home is a product that is a distributed cloud-based edge storage network. Vivent Smart Home, our parent company, is a smart home provider that places a lot of hard drives across homes in North America," explained JT Olds, Director of Engineering, and Brandon Crowfeather, Product Manager, at Vivint Smart Home, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow.

In this presentation, you will learn first hand what works and what doesn't while architecting and deploying OpenStack. Some of the topics will include:- best practices for creating repeatable deployments of OpenStack- multi-site considerations- how to customize OpenStack to integrate with your existing systems and security best practices.
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
