“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. BARC rates their solution offerings and highlights the strengths and challenges of their portfolios.
BARC Score Integrated Planning & Analytics DACH features 18 providers, with OneStream being a new addition this year. Over the last 12 months, OneStream has gained a stronger foothold in German-speaking countries and has now qualified as a challenger.
We continue to observe the increasing globalization of many suppliers, who are outgrowing their local markets. In order to shed light on the worldwide market for Integrated Planning and Analytics software, a global edition of BARC Score Integrated Planning & Analytics is available for the first time this year.
