EPM Value - The Right Model

Column5 has a process to achieve value with EPM (PAVE). The framework can be applied to any proposed investments in analytics to assess the value of potential process improvements. The model is the first of three vital areas, and arguably the most logical place to start when defining an EPM roadmap. This discussion will tackle such concepts as Integrated Business Planning, driver based models, and the need to align data structure and planning processes in your organization. Focusing on process impacts, and moving to a technology blueprint indicated by desired process capabilities, this logical approach will help define the scope of a project, where to allocate resources when procuring services and technology, and how to ensure the final outcome of the effort is as valuable as possible.
