EGHAM, England, July 23rd, 2002 - Potentially the UK's largest gathering of business performance management users and experts is expected at the 2002 Hyperion UK user conference, to be held this year at the Brighton Metropole Hotel, from 12 - 13 September.

Decision makers from many of the UK's leading companies are expected to be present to gain further insight into how business performance management solutions can help companies manage through extraordinary complexity by enabling managers to continually measure performance, anticipate results and drive profitability across key business activities.

The conference programme will include technical breakout sessions, customer case studies, instructor led training, roundtable discussions, product demos, and partner exhibition, as well as Hyperion experts from the USA and UK on hand to answer delegate questions. Organisations from a wide variety of sectors including financial services, manufacturing and publishing have already confirmed their attendance.

"Today's business environment demands corporate accountability," said Hyperion UK and Ireland Managing Director Mike Shelton. "This requires a level of business visibility that can only be achieved if companies maintain a true sense of the financial impact of their business activities. Business performance management bridges financial performance and business activity performance. Attendees at the Hyperion 2002 UK User Conference will be able to learn at first hand how to turn their business performance management processes into a seamless collaborative cycle that enables all business functions to engage across an extended enterprise."

A particular focus for the event will be Hyperion's recently announced Business Performance Management Suite, which is based on an integrating platform, Hyperion Essbase XTD, to combine management process with powerful business applications to allow companies to set goals, plan targets and measure, predict and report results in a collaborative way across the organisation. This comprehensive solution gives companies up-to-date insight, as well as foresight, into their business to successfully manage in demanding business and economic environments.

Continues Shelton: "Financial performance management is at the core of business performance management. But we go beyond our best-of-breed financial applications to integrate best practices and processes into our Business Performance Management Suite. The result is that companies have the potential to realise a continuous and accurate financial picture of their business and respond to market changes in real-time. The power of business performance management is in extending that visibility to all operating units and in every corner of a company. With Hyperion's Business Performance Management Suite, every application has access to the same underlying information. So, rather than waiting days - or even months - to get an outdated snapshot of business, customers will get up-to-date information, served up continuously, so they can proactively anticipate the next move. We firmly believe attendees to our 2002 UK user conference stand to gain greatly from what we have to say."
