STAMFORD, CT--(Marketwired - Apr 28, 2016) - BPM Partners, the leading independent authority on Business Performance Management (BPM) solutions, has opened the 2016 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. This year numerous questions focus on ease-of-use, reflecting the high priority this topic is receiving in purchase decisions.

"Financial planning and analysis (FP&A) groups looking to improve their budgeting, reporting, and analysis can benefit greatly from reviewing the results of this survey," said Craig Schiff, founder and CEO of BPM Partners. "The results are provided at no cost to all survey participants."

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

  • Ease-of-use
  • Predictive analytics
  • Modeling
  • Pre-packaged solutions and apps
  • The evolving role of spreadsheets
  • On premise/cloud/mobile considerations

Now in its fourteenth year, the BPM Pulse provides the most comprehensive customer-based view of the Business Performance Management market. It is the only survey of its kind, looking at the business applications, the technology and user satisfaction.
