Host Analytics Unveils Summer17 Release of Cloud EPM Platform

Host Analytics, a provider of cloud-based enterprise performance management (EPM) solutions, has released a new version of its technology for financial planning, modeling, consolidation, and reporting, with more than 50 enhancements.

With the Summer17 release, the platform is supported to run on browsers such as Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge; and includes improvements across the board such as breakback functionality, enhanced NetSuite integration to speed up analysis of financial results, a more intuitive and visually engaging user experience, and accelerated performance.

According to the vendor, the Summer17 release improves breakback, a feature that enables customers to reverse inputs and outputs within a model, by introducing multi-dimensional holds, which can exclude dimensions from the process. It also includes an audit trail that enables users to track the lineage of numbers within the models.

The Summer17 release also enhances the integration with NetSuite by introducing native, transaction-level data analysis, drill-through capabilities, in addition to account balances. Additional UX and UI software improvements include global search, bookmarks, segregation of duties, multi-dimensional report bursting, and enhanced report sets. 

The Summer17 release also provides features that accelerate planning, such as simulation engine optimization to accelerate the processing of “what-if” analyses; mass planning template updates; and scenario management. These, combined with previous concurrency improvements that enable deployments to over 6,000 users, support the ability to scale with customers as they grow.
