Gartner Magic Quadrants position vendors within a particular market segment based on their completeness of vision and their ability to execute on that vision.
According to Gartner, “Leaders’ performances excel in the CPM suite market segment. They can deliver breadth and depth of CPM suite functionality, as well as provide enterprise-wide implementations to support a broad CPM strategy. Leaders successfully articulate a business proposition that resonates with buyers, and are supported by the viability and operational capability to deliver on a global basis.”
Oracle’s Hyperion performance management applications (www.oracle.com/us/solutions/ent-performance-bi/performance-management/index.html) are a modular suite of integrated applications that span planning, budgeting and forecasting, strategy management, financial close and reporting, and profitability management.
Oracle’s Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) system (www.oracle.com/us/solutions/ent-performance-bi/index.htm) combines market-leading Hyperion performance management applications, the Oracle Business Intelligence (BI) Foundation (www.oracle.com/us/solutions/ent-performance-bi/business-intelligence/bi-foundation-suite-170437.html) and prebuilt BI applications (www.oracle.com/us/solutions/ent-performance-bi/business-intelligence/bi-applications/index.html) integrated to strengthen strategic, financial, and operational management processes.
