Analysts Acknowledge PeopleSoft as a Leader in Enterprise Performance Management

AMR Research and META Group Note the Strength of PeopleSoft’s Integrated Performance Management Solutions

PeopleSoft Inc. (Nasdaq: PSFT) today announced that SPEX, a META Group service, and AMR Research have acknowledged PeopleSoft’s Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) suite as a leader among performance management solution providers. The recently published reports note the strength of PeopleSoft’s comprehensive performance management solution, which is integrated across PeopleSoft’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications.

“PeopleSoft continues to lead all of the ERP vendors in the completeness and vision of its Enterprise Performance Management products. PeopleSoft’s EPM analytic architecture, supporting both cross industry and industry-specific analytics, is industrial-strength to handle the enterprise’s broad needs,” said John Hagerty in The AMR Research Report, entitled “Profiles in EPM,” February. “PeopleSoft, in particular, is tying EPM and better financial controls to overall corporate governance – a message that hits home with U.S. buyers today.”

In the SPEX Business Performance Management (BPM) software evaluation published in March, PeopleSoft’s Enterprise Performance Management suite received SPEXmark ratings of “excellent” in the functionality, technology and overall categories. PeopleSoft also received high scores in usability and market strength. The SPEX product evaluation noted that PeopleSoft’s key strengths included its technology/architecture, intuitive interface, strong scorecarding functionality and Global Consolidations module. The report also notes the importance of PeopleSoft’s ability to facilitate closed-loop performance management to address large, complex, multinational organisations.

“Executives are flying blind. Visibility into their business performance is limited, and their ability to change course in an instant, based on what conditions lie ahead, or what they’ve just experienced is minimal,” said Ray Kloss, PeopleSoft Director of Product and Industry, Japan and Asia Pacific. “From a corporate governance standpoint, and with regulatory and performance demands from the financial markets, companies can no longer operate in this way. PeopleSoft’s EPM suite is designed from the ground up to give real time insight to business information across the organisation, with deep drill down into the data to enable executives to make better informed decisions.”

PeopleSoft’s Comprehensive EPM Suite PeopleSoft EPM offers customers one of the most comprehensive performance management solutions on the market. Companies use EPM applications to gain a complete view of their enterprise and track their performance with state-of-the-art analytics. This enables organisations to rapidly align operations with strategic goals and adapt quickly to changes in business conditions. PeopleSoft EPM is built on a standards-based platform, reducing the need for custom development and ongoing maintenance of multiple integration technologies. Leveraging the PeopleSoft AppConnect suite of integration technologies, PeopleSoft’s EPM applications can utilise data from any system and integrate it into business processes, resulting in improved company performance.
