: Dr. Power,
: Could you point me to some of the success stories of implementing 
PeopleSoft EPM system? Thank you.
I have not had any direct experience with PeopleSoft EPM.
According to the website, PeopleSoft Enterprise Performance Management 
(EPM) helps analyze business processes, profitability, and key 
performance measures throughout an organization. Find out more about 
PeopleSoft Performance Measurement at
American Century Investments was one of the first Enterprise Performance 
Management beta sites. The initial product included "PeopleSoft 
Activity-Based Management, an analytic application designed to augment 
ABC principles with non-financial performance measures, so it 
complemented the company's ABC efforts." 
According to the website, as the Enterprise Performance Management 
system is more widely implemented, American Century expects to see even 
greater insights. "We're looking for strategic breakthroughs and new 
thoughts about how to look at our data," says Bob Jackson, American 
Century  Chief Financial Officer. "We think Enterprise Performance 
Management will allow us to get these insights. It'll allow us to play 
with the data, to test different things, to look at relationships that 
maybe we haven't had time to do or the power to."
As we all know vendor case studies present the best case implementation.
Note to DSS News Subscribers: If you have had experience with PeopleSoft 
EPM, please post your experiences to the DSSResources.COM bulletin
