With respect to cloud-based EPM, Ovum’s Surya Mukherjee, Senior Analyst, Information Management and the author of the report states that “Cloud-based delivery of the EPM solution removes the need for heavy initial investment in software and infrastructure and minimizes the reliance on enterprise IT.”

With regard to product scope, Mukherjee references Host Analytics as “One of the very few Cloud EPM vendors that offers an EPM suite (planning, close, reporting, and analytics) and not point tools.”

In reference to company position, Ovum describes Host Analytics as “One of the largest Cloud EPM vendors in terms of size, with a mature offering and a large roster of reference-able enterprise customers.”

“The EPM market is moving to the Cloud. Enterprises are replacing outdated on-premises software,” said Dave Kellogg, CEO of Host Analytics. “By doing so, Finance and Accounting teams gain an application they can own, improve their business agility, lower their costs and improve the security and availability of their data.”
