Hyperion Enhances Business Performance Management Suite with New Software Additions

SUNNYVALE, Calif., August 20, 2003 – Hyperion (Nasdaq:HYSL), the leader in Business Performance Management software, today announced that it has begun reselling the Brio product line to its customers under the terms of its recent OEM agreement with Brio Software.

The product set includes three key products—Hyperion SQR, Hyperion Intelligence and Hyperion Metrics Builder. Hyperion Intelligence provides organizations with Web-based ad hoc query, reporting and analysis; Hyperion Metrics Builder delivers Web-based, individual, personalized KPI dashboards for performance monitoring; and Hyperion SQR offers enterprise-class reporting.

The new additions to Hyperion’s Business Performance Management suite provide organizations with timely, personalized insight that empowers both financial and operational users to make the right decisions to drive performance accountability.

Hyperion SQR
Hyperion SQR provides a proven cross-platform, high-volume, enterprise-class engine for generating reports and processing data. Leveraging SQR, one of the best-known brands in industrial strength enterprise reporting, Hyperion SQR can be utilized against a broad range of operational sources.

Hyperion Intelligence
Hyperion Intelligence provides a “self-service” query and reporting environment that enables rapid publishing of key enterprise information assets for both online and offline users. For IT staff, Hyperion Intelligence offers a proven query and reporting tool with rapid Web-based deployment to support information sharing throughout all corners of the enterprise. With its self-service capabilities, users gain valuable insight and can turn that insight into immediate action. The product captures the requirements of many levels of online or offline operational users throughout the organization.

Hyperion Metrics Builder
With Hyperion Metrics Builder, enterprise-wide users have access to an intuitive dashboard to continuously monitor and align their performance against corporate goals, while the ability to receive alerts and notifications helps users anticipate results and stay focused on key corporate objectives.
