Hyperion Delivers Comprehensive Scorecarding Solution to Help Individuals
More Effectively Link Execution to Business Strategy

LAS VEGAS—HYPERION SOLUTIONS 2003 CONFERENCE—May 5, 2003—Today at its annual Solutions user conference, Hyperion (Nasdaq: HYSL), the global leader in Business Performance Management software, introduced the latest version of Hyperion Performance Scorecard. With Hyperion Performance Scorecard, companies now have access to a tightly integrated scorecarding and dashboarding solution to link operational performance monitoring with periodic trending analysis, allowing them to manage performance across the entire organization while bringing performance accountability to the individual level.

John Van Decker, vice president, Technology Research Services, META Group, predicts that between 2004 and 2005 the year 2004/05, "dashboards and scorecards will be the primary vehicles for communicating performance management within the organization. The metric-based approach provided by the balanced scorecard enables more effective business decisions by blending leading and lagging business indicators."

The third-generation of Hyperion Performance Scorecard provides numerous enhancements that help companies gain a clear understanding of corporate strategy, objectives and accountability, while proactively monitoring their actions and performance against targets and industry benchmarks. The Hyperion integrated Performance Scorecard solution arms managers and executives with drill-down access to accurate, integrated data so they can evaluate performance at any moment and make the best decisions. In addition, individual scorecards that are cascaded from corporate business objectives ensure that each employee can track and measure their results against those objectives. Because the solution inherently encourages bi-directional communication, employees can actively align their specific activities with the overall corporate objectives. By more closely guiding and monitoring individual accountability, companies can improve their overall performance while building a collaborative cor
porate environment.
“We are using Hyperion Performance Scorecard as our primary reporting mechanism to drive performance improvements and strategic measurement throughout the Global Operations Organization,” said John Monczewski, manager of the balanced scorecard and operational reporting group at Booz Allen Hamilton. “This effort has helped us intensify the focus on company strategy and align resources to accomplish relevant goals. Since deploying Hyperion Performance Scorecard, all global operations employees are focused on leading indicators, such as training and employee seminars, which has helped us create a more accountable organization. The software has also allowed us to instantly identify processes that overlap teams and reduce the downstream effect that one team’s actions can have on another.”

Leveraging Industry Expertise

Hyperion is the only vendor to offer customers the flexibility to customize leading frameworks—including Balanced Scorecard Collaborative, Stern Stewarts’ Integrated EVAâ Framework and Baldrige Criteria—inherently providing support for any scorecarding environment. Hyperion also integrates external benchmarking and best practices data, including nearly 3,000 metrics.

We selected Hyperion because we felt that the company was the strongest player in the space,” said Brett Dibkey, director of performance management at Pharmacia. “Hyperion’s vision and future product direction was stronger and more sustainable than other companies we looked at. Hyperion seems to be evolving its products faster than the competition.”

New Version Supports Hyperion’s Commitment to Performance Accountability

Hyperion Performance Scorecard, part of Hyperion’s world-class Business Performance Management Suite of applications, now offers significant enhancements designed to tie high-level business strategies with actionable goals, including:

· Improved efficiency by integrating dashboards and scorecards to bring operational performance monitoring and scorecarding together in a single view.
