Altius sponsored a free live webinar to demonstrate how companies can leverage Microsoft Excel for enterprise-grade Performance Management. In this webinar, attendees learned how Excel can become capable for enterprise-level tasks, including business performance management, with the addition of a database foundation, workflow engine, and security controls to guard data and models. Thought leader, Craig Schiff, President and CEO of BPM Partners, shared his predictions for Performance Management, including embracing MS Office.

“In our most recent BPM Pulse survey 79% of users said they still planned to use spreadsheets even after implementing a new performance management system,” said Craig Schiff, President and CEO, BPM Partners. “Altius understands that the market is looking for industrial-strength performance management software that retains familiar and powerful Office tools. The Altius solution utilizes Excel as the main vehicle for interacting with the data, leveraging its power and flexibility while at the same time removing the challenges traditionally associated with a spreadsheet process.”

This webinar includes a live demonstration showing how business users can:

  •     Utilize existing spreadsheet models
  •     Quickly perform multi-dimensional analysis
  •     Create and share customized reports
  •     Reduce dependence on IT

When the limitations of Excel are addressed effectively, then substantial cost savings – versus investing in a non-Excel packaged application for BPM- are likely.
