REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 1, 2012) - Host Analytics, the leader in cloud corporate performance management (CPM), today announced a new reseller partnership with business analysis specialists Inside Info to deliver its award-winning CPM and business analytics technology to the Australian and New Zealand regions. This partnership comes at a time when local CFOs are looking to business analytics and the cloud to bring competitive advantage and accelerate growth.
"The current market environment is constantly evolving and changing, which means organizations need to better manage corporate performance, especially budgeting, planning and forecasting. As a discrete process, like CRM, corporate performance management is particularly well suited to a cloud delivery model. It provides organizations greater flexibility, lower capital costs and fast implementations that take weeks rather than six plus months. The end result is customers fast-track uncovering business opportunity," said Stuart Barnard, Managing Director at Inside Info. "We're excited about partnering with Host Analytics as it provides our clients a unique value proposition at a time when CFOs and CIOs are telling us that their number one priority is to reduce costs and gain competitive advantage with business analytics."
An IDC poll from November 2011 of CFOs in Asia Pacific, including in Australia and New Zealand, showed IT can bring competitive advantage and accelerate growth through business analytics, collaboration tools and through the cloud as their top three priorities. Australian CIOs polled in May 2012 by IDC confirmed this showing that Australian businesses are looking to lower overall cost structures as their number one ICT priority, with business intelligence also on the list.
"Inside Info is a well-respected and accomplished technology reseller," said Jon Kondo, CEO of Host Analytics.
