REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 13, 2016) - Host Analytics, the leader in cloud-based enterprise performance management (EPM), announced today that it has been awarded a 2016 Industry Excellence Award from Dresner Advisory Services in the category of "Overall Leader." The annual awards acknowledge vendors who have achieved a leadership position in the 2016 Dresner Advisory Services Wisdom of Crowds® Business Intelligence (BI) or Enterprise Planning Market Studies. The annual research reports are based on data collected from end users and provide a real-world perspective on the BI and planning markets.

The Dresner Advisory Services Industry Excellence Awards go to those vendors who achieved high rankings in the Customer Experience and Vendor Credibility market models included in the annual flagship BI and Planning reports. The Customer Experience model considers the real-world experience of customers working with vendors' technology solutions on a daily basis, plotting touch points -- sales and service -- against customer sentiment surrounding product and technology. The Vendor Credibility Model considers a vendor's relationship with customers, plotting value for price paid against a "confidence" score comprised of integrity and recommend measures. The 2016 awards were presented across five categories: Overall Leader, Customer Experience Leader, Technology Leader, Credibility Leader, and Trust Leader.

"Customer satisfaction is a core tenet of any successful business and a key ingredient to long-term growth and profitability. We are pleased to recognize Host Analytics an Overall Leader this year," said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services.

"Earning a perfect recommended score in the report, which was one of the drivers of these awards, reflects our commitment to the continuous development of our technology and customer experience," said Ben Plummer, CMO at Host Analytics. "The market segment analysis and evaluation by Dresner Advisory Services is among the most thorough and trusted for decision makers assessing their investments in enterprise planning."

The Industry Excellence Awards from Dresner Advisory Services build on Host Analytics' growing number of industry awards for outstanding products and executive leadership. In 2016, the company has been recognized by Accounting Today, Blue Hill Research, The Innovation Enterprise Group, Nucleus Research, The Stevie Awards, and IT World Awards, among others.
