Hyperion global partners support introduction of Hyperion System 9

Hyperion System 9 First to Deliver Single, Unified System With Common User View for Performance Visibility Across the Enterprise

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 11, 2005 -- Hyperion (Nasdaq:HYSL), the global leader in Business Performance Management (BPM) software, today announced that it has received strong support from its global partners for Hyperion System 9, the most comprehensive performance management solution ever, and the first to integrate financial management applications with a business intelligence platform into a modular system that will adapt to any business need.

Featuring Hyperion System 9 Workspace, the first personalized workspace for Business Performance Management, the integrated solution transforms and simplifies the way users interact with BI and performance management software, breaking down the barrier between business and IT.

Hyperion System 9 leverages the unique technology in its Foundation Services layer to integrate BI technologies and financial management applications into a single cohesive system. For the first time, formerly disparate activities -- including management and production reporting, advanced analytics, financial reporting and consolidation, enterprise planning, scorecarding and strategic modeling -- are all accessible through the unified Workspace. With Hyperion System 9, users can address all of their performance management and query and reporting needs within a single thin client environment that is personalized and optimized for their unique needs.

"Hyperion's partners applaud the introduction of Hyperion System 9," said Mercedes Ellison, vice president of global partner sales at Hyperion. "They recognize the customer need for a unified system that integrates BI technologies and financial applications and helps businesses improve productivity, lower costs and reduce overall business risk. Our distinguished global partner community is excited about teaming with us to deliver Hyperion System 9 to the market."

"With Hyperion System 9, Hyperion combines previously disparate functionality into linked modules, reducing both technology complexity and total cost of ownership. These goals are critical, because The Hackett Group's research clearly shows that by reducing IT complexity and the number of overall finance applications, companies can cut their finance costs by up to 23 percent," said Leah Wheelan, managing director of Answerthink Inc.'s Hyperion practice.

Business & Decision

"Clients today are focused on improving performance and managing operational risk," said Patrick Bensabat, chief executive officer of Business & Decision Group. "With Hyperion System 9 they will gain better visibility into financial and operational metrics, and be able to conduct planning, forecasting and reporting with confidence."


"Hyperion System 9 will enable our clients to improve the quality of their decision making and their ability to meet corporate goals and objectives," said Christopher May, director general, Consultores de Integracion de Sistemas, Mexico. "It will be a cornerstone in our growth strategy for the business intelligence and Business Performance Management markets in Latin America."


"HP is pleased to support Hyperion System 9," said Chris Buss, director of business intelligence, HP. "The combination of HP's multiprocessing hardware platforms with Hyperion's integrated BI platform and financial management solution will help enable companies to make better and faster decisions based on a single, reliable source of information spanning the enterprise. The result is increased agility for our customers."

Teradata, a division of NCR Corporation

"The combination of the highly scalable Teradata warehouse with Hyperion System 9 provides an integrated enterprise solution that will help organizations make critical decisions through a comprehensive, single view of business performance," said John Dinning, vice president Solutions Marketing and Alliances, Teradata. "Together we deliver unparalleled visibility, reduce business risk and facilitate improved decision making across the enterprise."


"Hyperion System 9 provides the opportunity for corporations to simplify systems management for greater operational efficiencies, a concept that Unisys wholeheartedly supports," said Mike Thomas, VP of Global Solutions Partners at Unisys. "We look forward to offering Hyperion System 9 on the Unisys ES7000 platform to provide our BI customers with an enterprise-wide, highly scalable solution that protects existing infrastructure investments with the potential to lower total cost of ownership."


"As Hyperion's Top Americas System Integration Partner for 2005, WHITTMANHART views the introduction of Hyperion System 9 with its enterprise analytics module as raising the bar on analytic performance while at the same time further extending the scalability of Hyperion's Business Performance Management offering to address highly dimensionalized solutions that are as rich in content as they are in detail," said Bob Bernard, chairman and CEO of WHITTMANHART.
