Cloud-based enterprise performance management (EPM) provider Host Analytics and business and finance analytics specialist Inside Info has established a new data centre in Sydney to provide performance gains and meet data jurisdiction requirements for Australian customers using the Host Analytics Cloud EPM Suite.
“The launch of the new Sydney data centre provides an exciting opportunity to better serve customers in the region who are looking for a powerful, cloud-based EPM solution,” said Andy Ross, vice president of alliances, Host Analytics. “This initiative, together with ‘The Future of Finance Tour’ taking place this month, demonstrates our strong commitment to the Australian market and enabling organisations to improve their financial and operational agility.”
Stuart Barnard, managing director, Inside Info, said, “More companies than ever are looking for innovative financial planning, close and reporting solutions that deliver business insight, quickly and cost efficiently. Leading businesses like St Vincent’s Health choose Host Analytics because their EPM solution raises the bar even higher with super-fast performance, coupled with a comprehensive suite of capabilities that are unmatched in the industry.”
Host recently released Host Analytics Modeling, enabling organisations to bring their financial and operational planning to better anticipate business outcomes and inform financial plans. This release includes advanced analytics designed to gain insights from finance and operational models, a mobile-optimised user interface, and the ability to integrate data from any operational system.
“Host Analytics Modeling is designed to address an important need in corporate planning – closely tying all aspects of business planning to financial planning and budgeting and helping organisations collaborate across business silos,” said analyst Robert Kugel, SVP research, Ventana Research, which gave Host the highest vendor rating in the Ventana Research Value Index report.
