… combination of BPM and EII will deliver even greater results

than previously possible…

LONDON, UK, Nov 16th, 2004 – Hyperion (Nasdaq: HYSL), the global leader in Business Performance Management (BPM) software, and MetaMatrix, the leading provider of Enterprise Information Integration software and the only company that provides model-driven integration components for Service Oriented Architectures, have signed a UK partnership deal which will see the two companies provide hugely powerful solutions to improve the integration and leverage of enterprise information.

Commenting on the partnership, Mike Shelton, Managing Director for Hyperion UK and Ireland says: “Our customers are embracing an approach to Business Performance Management that builds on the power of an integrated platform to drive packaged and tailored analytic applications. The combination of Hyperion and MetaMatrix is thus a very natural fit. Our mutual technology, skills and resources offer a very powerful solution to enterprise information management needs. We will be focusing on supporting joint prospects and customers in the UK and Ireland initially. The two companies also have a mutual strength in the financial services market. Over time, we hope to expand this partnership to cover EMEA and other territories worldwide.”

According to Hamish Morjaria, Vice President Sales (Europe) at MetaMatrix: “Hyperion is the ideal strategic partner for MetaMatrix. Our mutual customers and prospects within the Times 1000 and Fortune 500 have big issues with the complexity and multiplicity of data sources. EAI vendors are attempting to address this by putting the data in one place. With EII, we can leave the original data sources where they are – and create a virtual enterprise data warehouse. Hyperion’s Business Performance Management software can therefore access one single data warehouse – giving users a single version of the truth. We also allow ‘write back’ to the original data source via the combination of Hyperion application and MetaMatrix virtual warehouse. We have already seen what a powerful solution this combination of Business Performance Management software with MetaMatrix’s Enterprise Information Integration technology can deliver. By partnering with Hyperion, we look forward to delivering ev
en more powerful solutions faster and at lower cost, helping companies to prioritise, plan, align and execute their Business Performance Management initiatives to gain even greater results than previously possible.”
