Craig Schiff

I am very excited about this opportunity to share my perspectives and experience in my BeyeNETWORK Blog. For those of you who may not have read my articles and newsletters over the past few years, I hope you will appreciate a vendor-independent perspective on all things related to Business Performance Management (BPM). I focus on key topics organizations should consider throughout their BPM project lifecycle, from early stage requirements definition and justification, key measure development, vendor selection and finally, successful deployment and rollout. Of course, market trends and vendor updates will also be part of the mix. Please stop by on a regular basis to see what's new, and to make this interactive, please share your opinions. If you have a specific question, contact me directly at cschiff@bpmpartners.com.

According to the initial results from the 2007 BPM Pulse survey, more than two thirds of the respondents are pursuing business performance management as part of their corporate system consolidation/standardization initiatives. A similar number were not aware of Microsoft's momentous announcement last June about their planned entry into the space. Of those who were aware of the announcement, the majority said it had little to no impact on their BPM plans. Microsoft clearly has an uphill battle ahead of it. Of course if they deliver a great product at the right price point that can change everything. Other key findings from this survey, including customer satisfaction ratings for the major vendors, will be revealed live this Thursday, January 18th at 12:00 ET. Replay now available here. Detailed results from the survey will be published here on the B-Eye Network in the coming weeks as part of the BPM Newsletter.
