Today is an exciting day for the Changepoint team as we officially launch our new Business Execution Management™ (BEM) Platform, which allows customers to connect strategy with execution, become more agile, and improve organizational performance. We designed this platform with the understanding that technologies, industries, and organizations are ever-changing while most business processes are unable to keep up with new challenges and needs. In fact, the 2014 Society for Information Management IT Key Issues and Trends Study reported that business alignment and agility are among the top five IT management concerns. Therefore, BEM was created to be flexible enough for executives to keep strategy and execution continuously aligned throughout organizational changes.
The technology behind this platform connects the robust solutions you’re already familiar with to provide new levels of visibility and strategic insight, including project portfolio management (PPM), enterprise portfolio management (EPM), and professional services automation (PSA). Rather than viewing and managing projects and initiatives independently within silos and spreadsheets, customers using the BEM Platform are able view real-time status updates for their technology, business, project, human capital, and other portfolios in one comprehensive view.
One of the many key benefits BEM provides is support for strategic planning and analysis. BEM does this by providing users with the strategic oversight and insight necessary to realize the downstream impacts of decisions, updates, and changes going on in separate departments. To do this BEM uses key EPM functionalities to develop a map of the enterprise, while connecting IT and business for real-time analysis of project, resource, and asset performance, as well as the interrelationships that exist across portfolios.
To learn more about the other three major benefits of this platform, and to hear what one of our customers has to say about it, check out the official press release.
