WHO WE ARE
Fidenda are the UK’s leading consultancy in Enterprise Performance Management (EPM), technology that enables businesses to plan and monitor their business operations and initiatives.
Our purpose is to support organisations facing change and disruption by improving the pace and reliability of their business decisions. We achieve this by working with our customers and applying our deep experience of EPM technology and business process, to design and implement solutions that transform them into data-driven organisations.
We know how to make EPM projects successful and all our experience is rolled into our Fun, Early, Many methodology. We use this to work with our customers from any stage of the project lifecycle, from initial definition through to preparation for support.
Tristan has been leading successful EPM implementations for over twenty years, having worked on some of the world's largest and most innovative EPM programmes. Prior to founding Fidenda, Tristan spent eight years at the UK's largest independent SAP partner, building the EPM practice, then the Energy & Natural Resources vertical, and then leading the company as Managing Director following the company's acquisition.
FUN | EARLY | MANY - The Fidenda methodology for delivering EPM excellence
We want our customers and consultants to look back on our projects and feel proud that they were part of a high performing team that delivered an excellent solution and overcame all the complexities and challenges they faced. We work hard on building that one team, comprising both our consultants and our customers' people, and inspiring them to collaborate and focus on the end goal. We hire people who are the best at what they do because they love what they do, and we provide an environment in which they thrive.
Too many IT projects fail because the first time users see their solution is when it’s too late to change it. Our principle is that the solution should be built and demonstrated to users early, from the outset of the project, whilst important design decisions are still being made and it’s not too late to change tack. This ensures a fit to requirements and improved user adoption and overall effectiveness of the delivered solution.
Other projects fail because they attempt to a large, complex solution in one big step. Our principle is to stagger delivery of functionality into smaller, more manageable, stages which make sense functionally. This opens the door to further refinement of delivered functionality based on the experiences of users actually using it.
