Private Equity and IPO Fever Fuel Red HOT CPM Market Amidst Surge in Legacy Replacements, Nucleus Research Value Matrix Shows

Corporate Performance Management software delivers a return of $2.15
for every dollar spent, companion research note finds

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The 2019 Nucleus Research Corporate Performance Management Value Matrix
shows leading vendors aggressively taking market share from legacy
providers as corporations seek more efficient financial solutions. As
Oracle, SAP and IBM struggle, leading providers are attracting private
equity funding, with one already going public.

CPM Technology Value Matrix Leaders include: Adaptive Insights
(acquired by Workday), Anaplan (now public), BOARD (acquired by Nordic
Capital), Host Analytics (acquired by Vector Capital), OneStream
Software (investment from KKR) and Vena Solutions (investment from JMI

“The once-sleepy CPM market is suddenly highly active as purpose-built
planning software is becoming readily available to customers of all
sizes and pocketbook values. No longer just for big enterprise players,
this accessibility is gradually leading to an arms race among vendors,”
said Andrew MacMillen, analyst at Nucleus Research.

Democratizing the planning and analytics of CPM solutions has begun to
galvanize an industry that was in the past repeatedly frustrated by
organizational inertia – customers who were satisfied with “good enough”
solutions. Today, Nucleus notes that CPM vendors are delivering the
benefits of cloud computing and embedded analytics to a company’s entire
workforce, eroding this institutionalized apathy towards upgrading from
legacy solutions.

CPM Software Returns $2.15 for Every Dollar Spent

In a separate research note, Nucleus found that for every dollar spent
on CPM software, customers saw a return of $2.15. This was based on
numerous CPM deployment case studies, highlighting best practices and
identifying key metrics for building a business case to replace legacy

“With superior flexibility and easier transitions than ever before,
vendors are ushering in the next stage of CPM solutions. However high
usability is paramount to the success of any new deployment, otherwise
you’ll lose the benefits of increased productivity and better informed
insights,” continued MacMillen.

There are two types of maturity underpinning the recent development of
the CPM software market. First is the advent of planning software
accessible to employees of all seniority and financial literacy levels
and second is the democratization of planning software across business
