Reduce costs and drive greater value by leveraging an effective enterprise performance management framework powered with leading practices and innovative technologies.
Today, the combination of volatility, globalization and increasing stakeholder expectations have created a need for more advanced enterprise performance management (EPM) capabilities. To develop and maintain these needed capabilities, Accenture believes finance organizations should first address three key questions:
What is required to successfully plan and manage enterprise performance in a complex market environment?
What is the roadmap that will help transform the current EPM capabilities into next-generation EPM with pace and certainty?
How can organizations accelerate the journey to next-generation EPM capabilities?
Developing these capabilities requires an effective and sustainable operating model that can serve as the foundation for the enterprise as it builds next-generation EPM capabilities.
In this point of view, we discuss a new framework for next-generation EPM—reflecting leading practices and skillfully employing innovative technologies—that can help companies optimize the return on their EPM investments.
By providing better control over the value-added aspects of finance—including planning, analysis and business decision support—this EPM framework can help finance organizations meet demands for cost reduction, timely and accurate reporting, dynamic planning, effective stakeholder communications and driving profitable growth for the enterprise.
