A growing number of organizations have recognized that reports generated with business intelligence tools must be tightly coupled with their strategic and operational planning processes for complete end-to-end performance visibility. The Hyperion Performance Visibility 2006 World Tour, a performance management seminar series delivered by way of 64 events across 31 countries, began this month with events in Oslo, Milan, Paris and Zurich, which drew more than 500 participants. The Middle East leg of the World Tour takes place in February 2006 and covers countries like Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
During the seminar series, Hyperion executives, customers and partners will educate IT, finance and business decision makers across the globe about Hyperion System 9, the first Business Performance Management system to integrate financial management applications with a business intelligence engine into a modular system that will adapt to business needs, thereby creating performance visibility.

The seminar will highlight the importance of business intelligence and business performance management in the success of organizations,” says Mr. Hisham Malak, Channel and Marketing Manager for Hyperion in the Middle East.
The seminars will feature Howard Dresner, Hyperion chief strategy officer, who will give an overview of how Business Performance Management gives business intelligence a purpose. He will put the challenge to the audience with the “BUSINESS PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT Revolution,” which encourages organizations to strategically think about Business Performance Management order to sustain growth.
