Despite the relative maturity of core CPM, a new generation of software solutions (including cloud based solutions) that are easy to use and quick to install have led to a new mid-market interest in CPM. Nucleus Research Corporate Performance Management Technology Value Matrix evaluated the usability and functionality that end users have received from CPM vendors. Usability composite scores are based on a number of factors, including intuitiveness of the application, availability of role-based interfaces, training requirements, and productivity impact on users.
