With regard to the business drivers of CPM initiatives, Gartner states that "Corporate performance management supports cost optimization and growth initiatives. CPM is a suitable fit for nearly all organizations, and should be a priority initiative for CFOs to enable the finance functions necessary to deliver short- and long-term strategic benefits to the business." With respect to cloud-based CPM deployments, the report adds that "There has been increased traction for SaaS-based CPM applications within midmarket organizations and, more recently, for larger, Tier 1 organizations. Gartner expects this trend to continue, and has elevated the importance of CPM cloud capabilities for CPM suite vendors."ii
"The cloud continues to transform and improve the way business is done today. We believe the inclusion of Host Analytics as the only cloud-based CPM Suite in this year's Magic Quadrant is further proof that cloud technologies are having a growing and increasingly positive impact on the office of finance," said Dave Kellogg, CEO of Host Analytics. "Our rapid growth, high customer satisfaction, and complete, cloud-based enterprise CPM suite give us the opportunity to do for the CPM market what Salesforce did for CRM and Workday did for ERP."
