The Information Management Awards 2001 (www.elanconf.co.uk/im2001.shtml) are the premier industry recognition of excellence and innovation in the management of business information in the e-business age. The primary criteria for judging were the delivery of significant and definable business benefits, together with the innovation and originality of the application. The prime objective of the project for Hyperion client, Clairol (EMEA), was to deliver one consistent view of the business that would lead to more timely and accurate business planning, forecasting and financial management. By making key information open and available to every relevant person in the organisation, it was also intended to remove any islands of information caused by spreadsheet systems, [and to speed up decision making]. Cost savings were made in terms of reducing the amount of data re-entry and spreadsheet maintenance in both the financial planning and customer account management processes. The core software products involved in the project were Hyperion Essbase, a multi-dimensional business intelligence platform designed to enable analysis across all facets of the enterprise; Hyperion Analyzer, an on-line analytical processing (OLAP), presentation and reporting solution,;and Hyperion Pillar, a pre-built budgeting solution specifically designed for end users across an organisation. Commenting on the nomination, Hyperion UK Managing Director Mike Shelton said: "We are delighted to have been named a finalist for this highly prestigious award. We believe that the benefits gained by Clairol in deploying these leading Hyperion solutions are a clear demonstration of the immense gains that other large organisations can make through the use of Hyperion's superior business intelligence technology."
