Hyperion Gives Temtec and its Executive Viewer Product the Ultimate Seal of Approval
Temtec, the provider of Reporting & Analytical Business Intelligence software, today announced that it is one of the first four companies to be designated ‘Platinum Partner’ status. The platinum designation, which will only be give to Hyperion’s top five partners, comes as recognition from Hyperion (NASDAQ:HYSL) of the Temtec’s Executive Viewer product and its high level of business synergy with Hyperion’s Business Performance Management platform, Hyperion Essbase XTD.
Executive Viewer is a web based front-end software product that provides an intuitive and user-friendly interface, allowing non-technical staff to gain fast, interactive and personalised access to the analytical power and business insight that OLAP solutions can provide. Using Executive Viewer’s browser based interface, companies can extract maximum value from Hyperion Essbase XTD by extending its OLAP and business analytic functionality to more new users, improving decision making, forecasting, evaluation and ROI analysis across the business.
With the previous partner designations only stretching to ‘Gold’ level, this new opportunity has been created by Hyperion to highlight truly outstanding products and consulting which demonstrates the best added value to its OLAP offering. To achieve Platinum status, Temtec’s Executive Viewer had to pass eight out of nine criteria based around integrated functionality with Hyperion Essbase XTD (details at the end of the release) as well as undergoing rigorous testing by Hyperion.
“Temtec continues to exceed the guidelines which we set out for our partners, and Executive Viewer is an obvious candidate for our new Platinum Award,” comments John Pierson, vice president Worldwide Channels at Hyperion. “Temtec passes our highest level tests, and even without this, we can see the value of its offering from the number of customers who buy Hyperion’s Business Performance Management platform in order to support Executive Viewer.”
Partners who have achieved Platinum level certification will be invited to participate as part of Hyperion's Partner Advisory Board. This will give Temtec invaluable insight into the strategic direction of Hyperion Essbase XTD and Hyperion’s Business Performance Management solutions. It will also provide an opportunity for Temtec to play a critical role in determining the direction and requirements for Hyperion products and solutions.
“Having been Hyperion’s first ‘Gold Partner’ back in 1998, we were determined to be first to achieve this new status,” commented Erik Weidgraaf, Temtec’s Co-Founder and Board Member. “We do not sell a standalone solution; Executive Viewer is a front-end which unlocks the potential of companies most critical resource - its employees and management - by providing immediate, interactive access to the companies’ OLAP analytical solutions. As such, industry recognition is vital. We see this award as a restatement of respect and trust at the highest level, from one of the leading players in OLAP processing and business analytics. It is also an opportunity to give our customers input into the way the industry and its leading products are headed, which will obviously provide great benefit to our valued customers.”
Hyperion Platinum Partner Criteria
The Hyperion Worldwide Partner Program offers six partnership categories and three partner achievement levels. It is a comprehensive programme that defines the value and benefits of partnership opportunities with Hyperion. The programme is designed to strengthen Hyperion’s partnerships by identifying the specific business objectives, value proposition and technical value-add of each partner company.
The Platinum level is the highest achievement level within the programme. A platinum partner has a very high degree of business synergy with Hyperion, and covers the worldwide market. Partners at this level will be assigned a named account manager with executive involvement, and high level of commitment from Hyperion. Partner requirements at this level are much higher, and partners have the opportunity to receive additional benefits.
For the designation as a Platinum Technology Partner, Executive Viewer had to demonstrate the following 9 compatibility features with the Hyperion Business Performance Management platform:
* Linked Partitions
* Linked Reporting Objects
* EIS Relational Drill-Through
* Complex OLAP Selection
* Visual Cues
* Multiple Alias Members Display
* Write-Back Functionality
* Substitution Variables
* Dynamic Time Series
