Decision Support Systems (DSS) has taken out Hyperion's 2001 Channel Partner of the Year award after securing several high-profile accounts for the business intelligence software vendor over the past 12 months.
In addition to reselling Hyperion's flagship intelligence and analysis product Essbase, DSS has developed a number of applications in-house to augment the feature set provided by Hyperion's software. One such proprietary application, Camelot, is geared towards government budgeting needs.
DSS counts the Federal Treasury in Canberra as well as treasuries and government departments in Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory as customers.
Patrick Elliott, managing director of Hyperion in Australia and New Zealand, said DSS was awarded the status based on a combination of annual revenues and soft trackers, such as the "feeling" of dealing with the company as a partner, how the partnership progressed through the year and its perceived future.
DSS did around 20 per cent of Hyperion's total business in 2001, with 60 per cent of the vendor's revenues coming from indirect sales, said Elliott.
