Business Performance Management (BPM) is how IT supports managerial/analytics processes that allow organizations to define, measure and oversee performance goals. BPM can impact financial operations, consolidations, performance indicators and a host of other company needs. And the vast majority of organizations now indicate that effective BPM is critical to their success, according to a survey from advisory services firm BPM Partners, Stamford, CT.

Nearly 545 companies took part in the Internet-based survey, representing financial-services, energy, health-care, consumer-products and a host of other industries. Organizations represented included those from North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia-Pacific. Find out how big the demand is for BPM really is, and how companies are going about pursuing it:
