OneStream Named Market Leader in BARC Score Financial Performance Management 2021

After debuting last year in the BARC Score for Germany, Switzerland and Austria (a.k.a. DACH), 2020 turned out to be a record year for OneStream.

The company exceeded its 2020 projections and achieved 85 percent growth in Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR), including triple digit ARR CAGR in EMEA from 2017-2020, across more than 650 customers. OneStream also increased its workforce by 65 percent, to over 700, and its partner ecosystem by more than 30 percent, to over 200, to support the company's continued global expansion.

All in support of our corporate mission of delivering 100% customer success.

Financial Performance Management

As the pace of change and uncertainty increases across the global economy, corporate performance management (CPM) plays a crucial role in increasing the competitiveness of companies. In fact, CPM is one of the central management disciplines that aligns organizational strategies with business processes to achieve the highest level of performance at strategic, tactical and operational levels. According to BARC, Financial performance management (see Figure 1) takes CPM one step further by incorporating the management and monitoring of financial results across the organization.

What Is the BARC Score?

The BARC Score considers BARC analyst feedback and assessments 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.

And now OneStream is recognized as a market leader.
