Have you ever wondered why Do It Yourself (DIY) shows are so popular? According to a Country Living article, “There’s a before, during and after in one TV show—so, you basically get to the happy ending very quickly.”  In other words, your renovations might take weeks or months (or, God forbid, years), while Chip and Joanna’s Gaines home makeover requires less than an hour of your time. And in the end it looks perfect, unlike what you may have experienced.
What is wonderful about these shows is that they take homes that are a total wreck and transform them into beautiful showcases where we wish we could live in them.  In almost all cases, the projects are within budget, finish on time, and result in a very happy customer.

LOS ANGELES, CA – March 15, 2017 – Solver, Inc., the global leader in Cloud and web-based Business Intelligence for mid-market ERP systems, today released the list of some of the added BI360 customers in February 2017.  The month included a number of new business deals from around the world, related to excitement building for BI360’s move to the Cloud.  As the current version of BI360 continues to resonate due to easy-to-use, dynamic, self-service Business Intelligence and Corporate Performance Management (CPM) software solutions, the developing move to the Cloud has proven to be exciting for prospective and current customers alike.

Solver saw continued growth in software sales, especially along industry specific analytics, adding a number of new customers, including Not-for-Profit, Realty, Consulting, Business Services, Manufacturing, Financial, Distribution, Agriculture, Utilities, Social Services, and Insurance leaders.  These deals were achieved by Solver’s sales team and their authorized reselling partner network.

“As we get ready to round out Q1, 2017, Solver is seeing a record start to the year,” said Nils Rasmussen, Solver’s CEO.  “The success of Q1 is even sweeter, as Q2 marks the beginning of Solver being one of the few modern CPM solution providers in the world that can offer customers a choice between on premise and public cloud deployment, as well as a migration path between the two options.

Solver can help them regardless of their timing and their deployment requirements.”

This article will focus on the demand for convergence of Business Intelligence and Corporate Performance Management tools and why this benefits mid-market companies.

Image taken from Gartner.

The latest release of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence strengthened my conviction that the market will see consolidation between the Business Intelligence/Visualization (BI) and Corporate Performance Management (CPM) vendors. Gartner classifies them in separate quadrants because the respective tools are evaluated differently during the sales process. Furthermore, BI tools usually sell into marketing and sales teams while CPM targets finance and accounting professionals. Consequently, there has been limited Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) in the space. Note that this article assumes readers are familiar with the basic definitions to focus on a narrative explaining the demand for their convergence.
