Metastorm and Hyperion Partner to Deliver Greater Business Insight to Customers
Partnership to Provide Integrated Business Process Management and Business Intelligence Technologies

COLUMBIA, MD and SUNNYVALE, CA – July 26, 2004 – Metastorm, a leading provider of Business Process Management software for automating, managing and controlling processes and Hyperion (NASDAQ: HYSL), the global leader in Business Performance Management, today announced a partnership in which Metastorm will integrate Hyperion Intelligence software into Metastorm’s e-Work software to deliver personalized dashboards and advanced reporting and analysis capabilities to customers.

Through an intuitive, Web-enabled dashboard interface, Hyperion Intelligence allows users to drill down into critical process data collected by the Metastorm Business Process Management software – either from a real-time process alert, dashboard indicator or database repository – analyze that data, and make informed decisions about how to improve the overall process or resolve business issues that arise on a case-by-case basis. Process improvements and exception resolution can then be applied in real-time. The entire “roundtrip” process management cycle can be managed directly from the Metastorm software interface. Customers will be able to take advantage of this capability for strategic analysis to feed future process design as well as for immediate, ad-hoc exception resolution – giving them greater insight and agility.

“Metastorm wanted to deliver advanced business intelligence capabilities to its customers in order to fulfill a critical element of its Business Process Management product strategy. Our partnership will enable customers to benefit from the most advanced set of tools available for sophisticated query and analysis delivered in easy-to-use dashboards,” stated John Kopcke, CTO at Hyperion. “Customers will gain tremendous value from the combined solution and from ongoing development efforts to produce market-leading innovation.”

The combination of Hyperion and Metastorm technologies will enable users to not only automate and manage critical business processes – such as new customer processing and order management – but also will give them the ability to access, analyze and leverage critical information about those processes to reduce process cycle time, improve productivity and service levels as well as reduce operational costs.

“Metastorm is committed to delivering a robust solution for full lifecycle Business Process Management. Because we specialize in addressing our customers’ unique, human-centric business processes, the ability to access, analyze and take action on critical data is an important element for success,” stated Eileen Garry, chief marketing officer for Metastorm. ”Our partnership with Hyperion clearly demonstrates our commitment to providing market-leading solutions that enable organizations to make critical business decisions and gain strategic advantage from their most mission-critical processes.”
