Longview Solutions Positioned in ‘Visionaries’ Quadrant for Corporate Performance Management Suites by Leading Analyst Firm


Toronto, ON and Philadelphia, PA, December 14, 2006 – Longview Solutions, a leading provider of performance management software, announced today that is has been recognized in the Visionaries Quadrant in Gartner Inc.’s Magic Quadrant for CPM Suites, 2006 authored by Nigel Rayner and published on December 1, 2006.

According to Gartner, “visionaries have a strong vision for delivering a CPM suite. They are distinguished by the openness and flexibility of their application architectures, and they offer depth of functionality in the areas they address, but they may have gaps relative to broader functionality requirements. A visionary vendor is a market “thought leader” and innovator; however, it may have yet to achieve sufficient scale, or there may be concerns about its capability to grow and provide consistent execution.”

“We believe Longview continues to deliver the industry’s most technically advanced, scalable and robust application for performance management,” said Mark E. Burton, CEO of Longview Solutions. “In addition to Planning, Budgeting, Forecasting, and Consolidation, the Longview Performance Management Platform is the only CPM solution that includes tax data collection and provisioning, as well as operational performance business processes – all within the same application.”
