Analyzing the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats
Host Analytics is one of the leading cloud-based EPM tools that Ovum believes will continue to see high growth in 2014.
Host Analytics offers a self-service enterprise performance management (EPM) suite delivered as a cloud service. It helps organizations avoid creating disjointed MS Excel spread-mart based analysis environments. 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. Using a familiar MS excel like interface and a business driven taxonomy that abstracts the technology layer from users, it allows customers to design their own EPM processes without in-depth knowledge of data schema/hierarchies or database relationships.
Host Analytics is not the only vendor to offer EPM in the cloud, but it is certainly one of the most mature cloud vendors (in functionality depth and customer profiles) and the only one that can claim to offer a gamut of well-rounded EPM services.
