intelligence software, today announced that work for client Clairol EMEA has
resulted in the company being named a finalist in the prestigious
Information Management (IM) Awards 2001 for the most innovative and
successful project involving the application of business intelligence

The Information Management Awards 2001 (
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."

The Awards dinner and presentation will be held on 29 November, 2001, in The
Great Room at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London
