Host Analytics Wins Industry Excellence Award from Dresner Advisory Services Recognized as an Overall Leader Based on Vendor Ratings Redwood City, CA - Aug 3, 2017 - Host Analytics, the leading provider of scalable, cloud-based enterprise performance management (EPM) solutions, today announced that it has been named a winner and recognized as an Overall Leader in the Dresner Advisory Services Industry Excellence Awards. The awards are presented to vendors achieving leadership status in Dresner’s annual Wisdom of Crowds Business Intelligence or Enterprise Planning research. The reports are based on data collected from end users and provide a real-world perspective on the BI and planning markets. “Host Analytics has earned its ranking as Overall Leader in the Enterprise Planning Market,” said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. “Overall leadership awards recognize vendors who demonstrate excellence across all categories of measurement and we congratulate Host Analytics on their performance in our survey of users this year.” The Dresner Advisory Services Industry Excellence Awards go to vendors who achieved high rankings in the Customer Experience and Vendor Credibility market models included in the annual flagship BI and Planning reports. The Customer Experience model considers the real-world experience of customers working with vendors’ technology solutions on a daily basis, plotting touch points – sales and service – against customer sentiment surrounding product and technology. The Vendor Credibility Model considers a vendor’s relationship with customers, plotting value for price paid against a “confidence” score comprised of integrity and recommend measures. “We’re extremely proud of this award, as it’s based in part on our perfect five-out-of-five recommended score from users in the Wisdom of Crowds report,” said Dave Kellogg, CEO of Host Analytics. “We work closely with customers to ensure we are continually innovating our technology to meet their needs and exceed their expectations.” National Public Radio (NPR) is one of the many customers that has achieved success with Host Analytics cloud EPM. NPR senior financial analyst Reggie Newsome said, “Host Analytics has helped us cut our annual budgeting process in half. Analysts do not have to spend as much time handling routine tasks, they can use their time more productively and strategically.” The Dresner Industry Excellence Award is the latest in a string of accolades for Host Analytics. The company was the only cloud-only vendor named a leader in both of Gartner Corporate Performance Management (CPM) Magic Quadrants, named a leader in the Nucleus Research CPM Value Matrix, and also named as a “hot vendor” in Nucleus Research The Eight Hot and Cold Vendors of 2017. The Industry Excellence Award is based on Host Analytics’ leadership ranking in the Dresner Research 2017 Wisdom of Crowds Enterprise Planning Market Study.
