The buzz: The Sizzle vs. The Steak.
Many CFOs’ wish lists include improved collaboration, embedded analytics, easier deployment and streamlined maintenance. As a result, Cloud-based EPM solutions will appeal to current and new users of performance management solutions.
But what will EPM in the Cloud really offer to organizations, and how does it differ from traditional on-premise approaches? And as we observe the rise of the “Analytical CFO”, how does EPM fit?
The experts speak.
Joe Mastro, Deloitte: “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not… Education will not… Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” (Calvin Coolidge)
Jeff Hattendorf, Macrospect: “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies and statistics.” (Commonly attributed to Benjamin Disraeli)
David Williams, SAP: “First mover isn’t what’s important — it’s the last mover.” (Peter Thiel)
