Host Analytics Continues to Soar in Outstanding Fourth Quarter

Fastest-growing Cloud EPM Company Boosts Momentum with New Funding Round and Major Customer and Partner Wins
Redwood City, CA – January 29, 2015 –

Host Analytics, the leader in cloud-based enterprise performance management (EPM),  today announced record growth for the fourth quarter and full year 2014, again growing new Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) by more than 115 percent. Fortifying its position as the fastest-growing cloud EPM vendor, Host Analytics also added major new customers and partners in the fourth quarter, closed a significant funding round, and continued to lead the market’s transformation from legacy on-premises applications to SaaS-based enterprise performance management.  

“I am incredibly pleased with our continued success,” said Dave Kellogg, CEO at Host Analytics. “Customers are frustrated with the high overall costs and limited flexibility of legacy on-premises EPM applications. Host Analytics is winning a major share of this cloud migration because we provide the only complete, enterprise-ready cloud-based EPM cloud platform.” 

Host Analytics recently announced the findings of a survey by Radius Global Market Research showing that 20-30 percent of organizations currently using legacy on-premise solutions plan to make a switch to an alternative solution within the next year, and 65 percent plan to eventually make a move.  The research findings are validated by Host Analytics’ growing success in winning new customers who are jettisoning on-premises solutions like Oracle Hyperion.

Funding
During the fourth quarter, Host Analytics announced a funding round of $25 million led by Centerview Capital Technology. Existing venture investors Advanced Technology Ventures, Next World Capital, StarVest Partners, and Trident Capital also participated in the funding round. Host Analytics will use this capital to continue developing cutting-edge solutions that match the needs of customers and to expand domestically and internationally. In addition, Ned Hooper, Founding Partner of Centerview Capital Technology, has joined Host Analytics’ Board of Directors.  (See resources below).
