SAP launches Business Process Expert Community for Corporate Performance Management (CPM)!

Dear citizens of the Corporate Performance Management world,

Welcome to the new Corporate Performance Management area on BPX at! SAP has made significant recent investments in the Corporate Performance Management space with our acquisitions of Pilot Software and OutlookSoft and reseller agreement with Acorn Systems, and interest in these solutions is exploding. With these moves, it was crucial for us to develop an open community for everyone to participate, and the BPX Community for Corporate Performance Management is open in more ways than one. It is open to those offering new ideas on product deployment, new developments, and innovations and it is open to those looking for new answers to their questions. It doesn’t matter if you are a customer, partner, or an SAP employee, you can find a wealth of information here: tips and tricks, demos, FAQs, how-to-guides, and collaborative forums. We provide the platform, but the community belongs to YOU and is for YOU to shape and make your own.

With this in mind, I would like to invite you to send your ideas, tell us your opinions, and share your practical experience to make this the most vibrant on-line community of CPM practitioners in the world. It's easy to submit your articles or write blogs for this area, too! While those of us from SAP will be frequently contributing to this site, ultimately, it is YOU who can provide the most value to your fellow BPX community members based on YOUR experience. If you need help, or have suggestions for improving this area, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be more than happy to assist you!

I am certain that you will find this to be a valuable resource and look forward to working with all of you to make the CPM area in BPX and the corresponding forums both vibrant and successful!

Best Regards,

Nenshad Bardoliwalla
