Hyperion Continues as 2004 Revenue Leader for Financial and Business Performance Management Analytic Applications
- 14 July, 2005 13:11
<p>Hyperion (Nasdaq: HYSL), was named the revenue leader for financial and Business Performance Management applications, according to IDC. The premier global market intelligence and advisory firm reported that Hyperion leads the space with more than 20.7 percent market share, according to calendar year 2004 software licence and maintenance revenues. Hyperion has more than double the market share of its nearest competitor who trails with only 8.5 percent1, and has been the revenue leader for the Business Performance Management market since 1999.</p>
<p>IDC defines Business Performance Management and financial analytic applications as cross-industry and cross-functional applications whose main purpose is to measure, analyse, and optimise business performance and financial analytic processes. The market for BPM applications actually exceeded IDC’s 2004 forecast by rising to $1.4 billion, and is expected to grow at compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.3 percent through 2009 (growth representing all BPM market segments).
IDC also recognises the bridging of BPM and Business Intelligence strategies as a key growth driver moving forward, given the desire of organisations to realise total performance visibility.
“This report confirms that Hyperion is still the overwhelming preference of customers who demand help driving to the highest levels of performance visibility,” said Fintan Diviney, Director of Channels, Hyperion Australia and New Zealand. “The combination of our market-leading applications and popular management reporting software is a powerful advantage for our customers. And, in combination, they enable true Business Performance Management.”
Recently Hyperion announced that more than 1,000 customers have adopted the Hyperion Planning application to bring benefits of planning, budgeting and rolling forecasts to their organisations. Hyperion Financial Management is also a favourite of enterprise customers.
“Most organisations who are serious about Business Performance Management have Hyperion’s applications on the short list,” said Kathleen Wilhide, IDC research director, Corporate Compliance and Business Performance Management Applications. “Hyperion’s focus on profitability is also a huge driver for the company, as it is a key element of management reporting that is on the agenda of most organisations, and is emerging as a major pillar of Business Performance Management implementations.”
