BPM Partners, the leading independent authority on business performance management (BPM) solutions, unveiled the BPM Pulse, a dashboard and guide-at-a-glance to real-world BPM implementations. The BPM Pulse presents information and feedback from actual BPM users in today's forward-thinking enterprises in an easy-to-use graphical report. It serves as a useful benchmark for those currently considering, planning or starting a BPM project, helping users and potential users consider the risks and benefits of a BPM implementation. The BPM Pulse also provides a working example of a corporate dashboard, often an important part of a BPM implementation.

BPM – one of the hottest emerging corporate initiatives for 2004 – is a combination of business processes, select measures (metrics, key performance indicators) and systems that enable an organization to understand, act on and influence its business performance. In today's fast moving business environment, it is vital that corporate executives understand the true performance of the business at any given point. Budgeting, planning, consolidation, scorecards, dashboards, business intelligence (BI) and analytic applications all fall under the BPM umbrella. In addition, regulatory issues such as Sarbanes-Oxley, Basel II, HIPPA and the Patriot Act compliance can drive the need for a BPM application.
