Corporate Performance Management (CPM)
[Definition]:

Corporate Performance Management (CPM) includes methods, processes and tools to optimize the performance and profitability of companies. CPM is considered by many market analysts and users as a further development of business intelligence because CPM includes not only past- and present-oriented task analysis and reporting (as does business intelligence), but it also includes forward-looking planning and forecasting. With CPM, the focus is not on the arbitrary interaction between selected tools, applications and technologies; it's more about the complex but essential combination of processes, data and information in a single system that can be applied consistently and used to optimize business performance. Often called Business Performance Management (BPM) or Enterprise Performance Management (EPM).
