Top Impacting Factors
Increase in need for making business strategy transparent to all employees, rise in focus on core business & improved scalability and increase in demand for cloud-based EPM software drive the market growth. However, risks in implementation are expected to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
Increase in Need for Making Business Strategy Transparent to All Employees
It is necessary for the companies to have their every strategy aligned to achieve the goals of the company. The enterprise performance management software is needed to resolve lack of strategic focus among employees of the company set by the key executives. In addition, this software helps in mapping the goals with current performance helping users to understand and gain the perspectives of the work to be done for getting desired results. The transparency regarding business strategies among employees can be delivered through the scorecards and dashboards of the EPM software. This results in the strategic growth and increase in productivity of the employees according to the set rules by the organization.
Rise in Focus on Core Business & Improved Scalability
The need for better and more resources is increasing with the growth of the business. Thus, companies need efficient EPM software to scale according to the demand to increase capabilities and licenses as needed. This software provides scalability and high performance, as the business expands and grows. Moreover, it provides predictive analytics to decrease the time spent for the finance function enabling more focus on higher value tasks. It delivers operational efficiencies by automating routine tasks, reducing planning efforts & reporting, and provides Key performance indicators (KPI) & metrics for better assessment, and financial closures, and giving organizations qualitative business insights periodically. In this way, EPM software allows companies to better focus on the core business functions and improves decision-making rather than handling routine financial and nonfinancial tasks.
Risks in Implementation
Enterprise performance management has complex operational procedures, due to integration of associated additional components. This adds to the system cost as well as increases the overall cost for the organization, owing to the complications associated with installation and requirement of experienced and skilled professionals. Moreover, these systems require regular maintenance checks to ensure the functionality of the system and reliability, which result in extra maintenance cost that impedes the growth of the market.
Increase in Demand For Cloud-based EPM Software
Integration of cloud-based infrastructure and business analytics is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities to the industry verticals such as manufacturing, financial services, consumer packaged goods, retail, and others. Faster time to value (TTV), reduced total cost of ownership (TCO), and increased autonomy are some of the factors, which are expected to fuel the market demand during the forecast period. The adoption of cloud-based EPM software is increasing significantly, owing to the benefits such as real-time availability of operational and financial data that is not available using existing legacy and on-premise systems. Infrastructure costs ranging from operating system updates to server upgrades also increase the costs of maintaining on-premise enterprise performance management systems, without an assurance of higher quality. Cloud-based EPM application updates are automatically pushed out to customers. Thus, all these factors are anticipated to offer future opportunities for cloud-based EPM software market.
