BARC Highlights OneStream as a Challenger to Legacy Vendors

Whether you’re new to OneStream or already part of the family, our mission of 100% customer success never changes.  In fact, not only is 100% customer success our mission – it’s why we exist.  And in today’s highly competitive corporate performance management (CPM) market, our commitment to 100% success plays a major role in OneStream’s growth.  To support this mission, OneStream is making significant investments in Europe, where 2019 revenue increased by over 200% YoY.  And with new offices in the Netherlands, UK, Sweden, France and Germany to support our 100+ customers,  OneStream’s mission is alive and well.

Our commitment to our customer success is also “why” we’re so humbled when we receive such positive industry and customer recognition.

And that makes it an honor to share our latest industry award, this time specific to Germany, Switzerland and Austria (a.k.a. DACH) OneStream has been highlighted within the BARC Score report for Financial Performance Management – DACH market for the first time.

Financial Performance Management

According to BARC, CPM plays a crucial role in increasing the competitiveness of companies.  In fact, CPM is one of the central management tasks that aligns organizational strategies with business processes to achieve the highest level of performance at strategic, tactical and operational levels.  Financial performance management (FPM) takes CPM one step further by incorporating the management and monitoring of financial results across the organization.

What Is the BARC Score?

Like the Gartner Magic Quadrants, the BARC Score considers BARC analyst feedback and assessment for a specific software market.  BARC Scores are generic, rankings of vendors based on a set of detailed criteria.  Scores are then plotted on two dimensions – “Portfolio Capabilities” and “Market Execution” – and categorized into five segments: Entrants, Specialists, Challengers, Market Leaders and Dominators.

So where did OneStream land for FPM within DACH?
