Gartner names Longview Solutions a Visionary in both 2016 Magic Quadrants for Corporate Performance Management
Placement in Strategic CPM and Financial CPM Magic Quadrants based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
June 1, 2016 -TORONTO, ON — Longview, a leading global provider of enterprise performance optimization solutions, including corporate performance management (CPM), tax and analytics, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has deemed Longview a Visionary in its latest “Magic Quadrant for Financial Corporate Performance Management Solutions” 1 (FCPM) and “Magic Quadrant for Strategic Corporate Performance Management Solutions” 2 (SCPM).
“Longview is pleased to once again be named a Visionary by Gartner, earning double recognition in 2016 through our inclusion in both SCPM and FCPM Magic Quadrants,” said John Power, CEO, Longview. “I am very proud of Longview’s ability to maintain positioning as a Visionary despite swiftly changing market conditions, and of our powerful, unified product platform that delivers best-in-class solutions to help any organization optimize performance and results.”
In line with the evolution of the global CPM market, Gartner has divided the Magic Quadrant (MQ) into two segments. The SCPM MQ evaluates how solutions integrate operational and financial planning and enable best practices for effective corporate planning, modeling, performance reporting and strategy management. The FCPM MQ evaluates vendors on their capabilities to extend and enhance finance processes through the close cycle. In total, Gartner assessed 26 CPM vendors across both reports, with 16 vendors named in the SCPM MQ and 10 in the FCPM MQ. Longview is one of only three vendors recognized as a Visionary and one of only six vendors to appear in both MQs.
“We believe Longview’s placement in both MQs validates our ability to help our customers go beyond basic performance management and measurement and truly optimize their performance across the organization with our Unified Performance Optimization (UPO) platform,” added Power. “With a robust analytics engine and advanced reporting capabilities through its central core, we feel Longview is well positioned to continue to meet the evolving needs of organizations around the globe.”
