<p>Hyperion Software Scales to Support Faster Financial Consolidation Cycles and Reduction in Compliance Costs</p>
<p>SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 16, 2004 – Hyperion (Nasdaq: HYSL), the global leader in Business Performance Management software, today announced that Hyperion Financial Management, the company’s Web-based, global collection, financial consolidation, reporting and analysis solution, tested favourably for scalability and performance by Intel® Solution Services. The results of the third-party scalability test validated that Hyperion Financial Management can be fully scalable to 1,000 concurrent users or more while meeting industry standard response times for end-user tasks. This benchmark represents the second Hyperion and Intel Business Performance Management application performance scalability test.</p>
<p>“Hyperion Financial Management is setting the industry standard for financial management application scalability,” said John O’Rourke, senior director of application product marketing for Hyperion. “Customers who need to improve their financial consolidation cycles and reduce costs associated with compliance across the extended enterprise will win as a result.”</p>
<p>There is a growing demand for financial and operational accountability across the enterprise –companies are increasingly relying on packaged financial applications that help them comply with today’s rigorous requirements in a cost-effective fashion.
The test sizing and scalability methodology created by Intel Solution Services for Hyperion Financial Management combined simulated user behaviour running against hardware configurations that included 4-way servers based on Intel® Xeon ™ Processors MP operating at 2.80 GHz with 4 GM RAM.</p>
<p>“Intel Solution Services, working with Hyperion, found that the financial management application performed extremely well under tremendous load, and delivered excellent industry- standard user response times,” said Catherine Sigmar, managing director, Intel Solution Services. “Intel Solution Services consultants and Hyperion were able to demonstrate the application’s ability to scale with a growing enterprise.”</p>
