Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) is the process of evaluating business performance with the goal of increasing operational efficiency, maximizing business processes, and improving ROI. An EPM system integrates and analyzes data from diverse sources such as front-office and back-office operations, e-commerce systems, data warehouses, external data sources, and more. Advanced EPM systems support various performance methodologies like the balanced card. EPM drives the enhanced performance of a business by doing result comparisons to its subsequent future business goals.
