SAP and Hyperion Customers Extend Business Performance Management with
Certified Personalized Dashboards and Mission Critical Reporting

NEW ORLEANS—at SAP SAPPHIRE ’04—May 11, 2004—Hyperion (Nasdaq: HYSL), the global leader in Business Performance Management software, today announced SAP certified integration for mySAP™ Business Suite and SAP® Business Information Warehouse (SAP BW), a core component of SAP NetWeaver™. The certified integration between Hyperion Performance Suite and SAP solutions will allow joint customers to maximise their existing investments in both Hyperion and SAP, and gain greater insight from critical business information across the enterprise.

With the integration of Hyperion Performance Suite and SAP BW, Hyperion and SAP customers can now view data from multiple data sources in Hyperion’s easy-to-use, personalised dashboards, extending their Hyperion and SAP solutions. Dashboards provide a graphical display of performance information spanning financial and operational measures, giving users the information they need to monitor and manage business results.

Hyperion and SAP customer, Maxxium Worldwide—international sales, marketing and distribution network for premium brands of wine and spirits—says that the integration of Hyperion and SAP products will help maximize the company’s enterprise software investments.

“Both Hyperion and SAP are key to our long-term business and IT strategies,” said Eelco Spiker, Brand Consolidation Manager at Maxxium Worldwide. “This extended relationship will help us gain even greater value out of our existing investments, and offer us powerful new query and reporting capabilities for our SAP systems.”

The Hyperion Performance Suite—comprised of Hyperion Intelligence and Hyperion SQR—together with Hyperion Essbase, provides the business intelligence foundation for Hyperion’s Business Performance Management solutions. Hyperion Intelligence 8.2, which delivers powerful ad hoc query and analysis, successfully completed the certification tests for SAP BW, achieving “Certified for SAP NetWeaver” status. Hyperion SQR 8.2, which provides award-winning, presentation-quality reports, has been certified for mySAP Business Suite.

Together, Hyperion solutions and SAP NetWeaver will enable customers to:
Extend query, reporting and analysis into personalised dashboards for all users across the enterprise, automatically integrating information from SAP systems
Easily create intuitive, mission-critical production reports with Hyperion SQR
Quickly access and unify SAP BW information with data from external sources within a single Hyperion report.

“The integration of our easy-to-use business intelligence solutions with SAP NetWeaver is important to customers who want to extract the maximum value from the information that drives their businesses,” said John Kopcke, CTO for Hyperion. “The continuing relationship between SAP and Hyperion will help customers extend the value of Business Performance Management and BI to employees in all corners of the enterprise while maximizing scalability and performance.”

For the last two years, Hyperion SQR has been honored as a “Gold Star Winner” of the SAP FAQ annual Members Choice Top 25 Tools and Technology award. The SAP FAQ, the more than 15,000 member group comprised of the leading SAP professionals, chose Hyperion SQR as a product that had the "greatest positive impact" on SAP R/3 and mySAP Business Suite implementations.
