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.

February 2010 Archives

In the 2010 BPM Pulse Survey we asked a number of questions to determine where business performance management (BPM) fell on the priority list at most organizations. While the survey is still ongoing, with more than 500 responses already in we can take a meaningful initial read on this topic. One question asked if respondents thought BPM was essential, nice to have, or a luxury. Almost 60% responded that is was essential (only 5% called it a luxury for those with resources to spare). Another more telling question required the ranking of 7 different enterprise systems in terms of their importance to the organization. While ERP came out on top, BPM was right behind. It was ahead of customer relationship management, business intelligence, governance, risk, and compliance, business process management (the other BPM), and HR systems. This survey will remain open through the end of this month. If you would like to add your two cents and get a copy of the survey results report when available go here.
