Hyperion customers honored for innovation by InfoWorld
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 16, 2005 -- Two Hyperion (Nasdaq:HYSL) customers have been named to the InfoWorld 100, an annual award that honors IT projects that demonstrate the most creative use of cutting-edge technologies to further business goals. Broward County School District, the sixth largest school district in the United States, and Spectra-Physics, a leading global manufacturer and distributor of optical technology solutions to researchers, scientists, and manufacturers, both won for innovatively leveraging Hyperion business intelligence.
"IT departments continue to learn hard lessons about business realities and realistic ROI," said Eric Knorr, executive editor at large for InfoWorld. "The InfoWorld 100 provides a forum for IT managers to get the recognition they deserve for smart projects from an audience of their peers."
Of the 100 honorees, 20 finalists -- including Broward County School District -- will be in line for the InfoWorld 100 Project of the Year Award, which will be announced in March 2006. Broward County School District was honored for its use of a data warehousing and a browser solution called Virtual Counselor, which leverages Hyperion software to provide business intelligence access and dashboards. According to the InfoWorld article, The Virtual Counselor "... puts records, test scores and key information at parents' fingertips. Parents can schedule in-school appointments with guidance counselors online if they find something amiss with Billy's or Susie's data." Broward County manages records for 286 schools, 41,000 employees, 50,000 adult students and 276,200 children with this solution.
Spectra-Physics was recognized for its Business Performance Management solution that leverages Hyperion's easy-to-build and easy-to-implement dashboards, as well as production reports. The company is currently using more than 120 Hyperion reports, most of which are delivered daily, while others are viewed monthly, weekly or even hourly.
"Hyperion empowers our small IT team with a rapid development tool that delivers dashboards that otherwise wouldn't be possible," said Mark Rowell, director of information technology, Spectra-Physics. "The iteration time from design to delivery has been reduced enormously. We would not attempt to develop a dashboard without Hyperion. It just wouldn't be viable."
