The analyst firm BARC has published two software rankings for integrated planning and analytics. The fifth edition of BARC Score Integrated Planning & Analytics (DACH) evaluates market-relevant manufacturers in the DACH market. This year also sees the publication of the first edition of BARC Score Integrated Planning & Analytics on a global level.

“Advancing digitalization is rapidly shifting the framework conditions for corporate management and control. From predictability, stability and security, business is increasingly moving towards volatility, complexity and uncertainty. Transparency is intended to provide both a view into the past and the direction of future developments in process goals and structures. For this reason, we believe that investment in the improvement of business processes and supporting software solutions is a necessity,” said Dr. Christian Fuchs, Senior Analyst for Data and Analytics at BARC.

The performance level of the manufacturers and the maturity level of their software products has now reached a high level. In addition to a few software generalists such as SAP, IBM, Infor and Oracle, these editions of BARC Score also include many specialized manufacturers such as Adaptive Insights (a Workday company), Anaplan, Bissantz, BOARD, CoPlanner, Corporate Planning, Cubeware, cubus (a Serviceware company), evidanza, IDL, Jedox, Longview, LucaNet, OneStream, Unit4 Prevero and Wolters Kluwer CCH | Tagetik.
