Corporate performance management (CPM) company Adaptive Planning just got some valuable market validation.

The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company extended the $45 million funding round it raised in May to a few additional investors, including Salesforce.com and former Oracle CFO Jeff Epstein, Adaptive Planning announced Wednesday morning.

In a call with VentureBeat last night, Adaptive Planning CEO John Herr declined to disclose the amount of new investment. It’s more about strategy than capital, he said.

“Salesforce means a lot,” said Herr. “It’s a very powerful brand on Main Street.”

Epstein, meanwhile, is now a senior advisor to Adaptive. Epstein has helped Adaptive develop its business and build a community of chief financial officers, said Herr.
