Cloud9 Analytics Defines New Class of Performance Management Applications for the Front Office

Originally published 18 May 2010

Cloud9 Analytics, a leading provider of SaaS business analytics for line-of-business managers has defined a new category of performance management applications for the front office and recently unveiled a strategic, 24-month product roadmap. These new performance management applications align with the principles of traditional corporate performance management (CPM) applications but rather than controlling costs in Finance, they drive revenue growth by automating the planning, executing and optimization process for front office managers.  For too long, front office managers have gone without automation for key management processes, resulting in use of labor intensive, disconnected and uninformed tools.  This lack of automation leads to wide variation in performance across front line management teams.  The next wave of corporate productivity gains will come from enabling a smarter management process and Cloud9 will accelerate the realization of these gains for customers.

To support its strategy, Cloud9 is announcing its customer-driven roadmap:

  • Enhancements to the company’s flagship Pipeline Accelerator product
  • The availability of a new suite of Performance Management applications for the enterprise, to be released in phases over the next 18-24 months
  • Fully-automated support for additional CRM systems and data sources 
  • An open and extensible SaaS analytics platform for development of third-party vertical applications
  • A robust mobile solution to extend front office applications from the desktop to the “phone-top;”
