The EPM market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7%. Stay ahead of the curve by adopting the top EPM trends and market leading solutions like Oracle EPM Cloud.
Organizations of all sizes face the challenge of improving their performance and achieving their financial goals. However, with multiple moving parts and stakeholders involved, it is a challenge to keep track of performance metrics, identify bottlenecks, and make data-driven decisions. That's where Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) comes in. EPM applications have been around since the mid-80s, growing in size, functionality and capabilities steadily through the years.
Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) and its Adoption
EPM provides a comprehensive framework and suite of tools to help organizations plan, monitor, and manage their performance, enabling them to gain insights, take corrective actions, and achieve better business outcomes. EPM includes a range of activities, such as financial planning and analysis, budgeting, forecasting, risk management, and performance reporting. Oracle EPM Cloud, SAP, Workday, and Anaplan are some of the major EPM vendors.
According to a recent report by Research and Markets, the global EPM market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7% from 2022 to 2027. This growth is driven by the increasing need for real-time monitoring and analysis of business performance, the growing demand for cloud-based EPM solutions, and the rise of big data analytics.
In addition, a survey (year:2022) conducted by Dresner Advisory Services found that adoption of EPM continues its steady upward trend, with nearly 54% of organizations currently using EPM software.
These market insights suggest that businesses recognize the importance of EPM and are willing to invest in solutions that will help them improve their performance. By keeping up with the latest trends in EPM, organizations can ensure that their investments in EPM technology are aligned with their business goals and market dynamics.
Taking the cue, this blog shares the current trends in Enterprise Performance Management.

With cloud-based EPM solutions, companies can access their data and analytics from anywhere, which allows for greater collaboration and more informed decision-making.
Integration with other business systems
Organizations are increasingly looking to integrate EPM with other business systems, such as ERP, CRM, and HR systems, to gain a more holistic view of their operations and performance. EPM integration with other enterprise systems enables companies to streamline their operations and get a more accurate picture of their overall performance.
