Host Named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Third Year in a Row

We’re on quite a roll, if we do say so ourselves!

We’ve already been named a leader (for the sixth consecutive year) in the Nucleus Research CPM Technology Value Matrix, won a prestigious CODiE award, and closed our acquisition by Vector Capital. Now, as the icing on our cake, we’ve just been named a Leader in the Gartner 2019 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Planning and Analysis Solutions. This is the third consecutive year that Host has been positioned as a Leader in this report.

It’s always nice to be recognized, and the Gartner Magic Quadrant is widely considered one of the most important measures of a software company’s vision and ability to deliver great product capabilities. Every award we win or recognition we achieve is a reflection of the value baked into our solutions. We’re proud of the work we’ve put into our products, but our customers are the ultimate winners here. And since we develop cloud-based financial planning and close solutions, our customers reap the benefits of any improvements the moment we release them.

This Gartner report is based on capabilities as of the end of 2018, but we’ve accomplished a lot since then. Looking back at just the past 8 months (did we mention our Spring19 product enhancements, our new CEO, and our global expansion?), we’ve made a huge amount of progress. It might even be enough to justify coasting through the next few quarters. But not at Host!

“We are laser-focused on developing great new products and capabilities for our customers, all with the goal of making our customers more effective, more productive, and more strategic. We are honored by this recognition, and excited to keep this momentum going with more exciting product releases right around the corner!” says Mark Bauer, SVP of Product Management at Host Analytics.

Being named a Magic Quadrant Leader validates the strength of our product suite and the work we continue to put into new features and capabilities to meet our customers’ needs. It should give prospective customers confidence that Host brings the financial expertise and industry-leading tools they need to lead the evolution of business within their organizations.

For our existing customers, thank you for your continued support and for working so closely with us to deliver these award-winning tools. We’re finance professionals, just like you, and we take pride in the work we do to elevate the strategic value of finance in every organization.
