Business Intelligence Network Announces Enterprise Performance Management Study

Research Study, Conducted by Howard Dresner, Will Help Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Product and Service Providers Understand the Perspectives and Plans of Buyers, Influencers and Others Regarding EPM Investments

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - March 10, 2008) - The Business Intelligence Network™ announces their plans to conduct extensive research on the enterprise performance management (EPM) market to get a clear understanding of the business and market conditions that are driving demand for EPM systems as well as factors posing barriers for adoption.

The research study will examine the perceptions and intentions of 500 organizations in North America that are currently deploying or intending to deploy business performance management systems.

"I am excited to be conducting this study," says Howard Dresner, Founder and President of Dresner Advisory Services, LLC. "As we enter into a fairly challenging market and economy, it's important to understand the perceptions and expectations of that market. So much has changed within the last year that it's critical to go out into the 'real world,' ask hard questions and deliver comprehensive analyses and insights. This research will provide an understanding of current and future market drivers and important cause-and-effect relationships to help companies plan accordingly."

The objective of the study is to uncover the emerging trends within the EPM marketplace and to help both the producers and the consumers plan accordingly.

The Business Intelligence Network is currently accepting sponsors for this research study. Sponsors will benefit from not only the audience that the Network provides, but also from an on-demand web seminar. Sponsors also will receive all data from the report, custom analysis for their company, and primary sponsors will also receive a half-day, onsite presentation from Howard Dresner. The final research study and accompanying report will be targeted at both consumers and producers of enterprise performance management products. For more information on how to become a sponsor, please email Kym Wootton (
