Q: WHAT IS CORPORATE PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT (CPM)?
A:
According to Gartner, a leading information technology research and advisory company, CPM is an umbrella term that describes the methodologies, metrics, processes and systems used to monitor and manage an enterprise's business performance. Automating and centralizing finance systems and processes delivers data integrity and a single, validated version of financial truth. Longview provides a powerful, single-source platform solution that centralizes your CPM to simplify and accelerate your business processes and help you make decisions with confidence.
