Hyperion Master Data Management Offers Customers Significant Advantage According to Bloor Research

  • 24 January, 2006 11:49

<p>Hyperion’s Master Data Management gives its customers a significant advantage when implementing a Business Performance Management solution, according to a recent article published by leading UK analyst group, Bloor Research.</p>
<p>“There was one element of [Hyperion System 9] that is almost unique amongst these (BPM) vendors and which creates a significant market advantage for Hyperion,” wrote Bloor Research analyst Philip Howard. “This is the introduction of Master Data Management (MDM) as part of the platform.”</p>
<p>Hyperion System 9 is the most comprehensive performance management solution ever and the first to integrate financial management applications with a BI platform into a modular system that will adapt to any business need. This comprehensive, integrated solution delivers consistent visibility of past, present and future business operations, enabling sustained improvement in business performance.</p>
<p>Hyperion System 9 Master Data Management synchronises BPM master data — such as business dimensions, reporting structures, hierarchies, attributes and business rules — across distributed data warehouses, data marts, analytic applications, and transaction systems. It is offered within the foundation services layer of Hyperion System 9 and empowers business users to directly manage complex, rapidly changing master data – technology that is unique to Hyperion within the performance management industry.</p>
<p>“For the moment, this feature of Hyperion System 9 gives the company a very significant advantage over its closest rivals,” wrote Howard. “In particular, the difficulty involved in implementing change without the benefit of MDM can be so great that companies are sometimes prepared to implement sub-optimal plans rather than go through the pain of making these changes. With Hyperion System 9 and MDM that need never be the case.”</p>
