MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 -- Adaptive Planning, the worldwide leader in cloud-based business analytics solutions for companies and nonprofits of all sizes, today announced record 2012 results and exceptional momentum in the midst of skyrocketing demand for cloud-based BI and CPM solutions. The company recorded over 90 percent growth in new software bookings and added more than 500 new customers throughout the year.

"This past year was outstanding for Adaptive Planning as we continue to raise the bar in cloud-based CPM solutions with the fastest growth, most customers and partners, and highest customer satisfaction," said John Herr, CEO of Adaptive Planning.

Partners were a key part of the ongoing rapid growth of the enterprise market for Adaptive Planning, with more than 50 percent year over year growth in partner deals in accounts with revenues between $500 million and $1 billion. The partners' impact accelerated international market presence and revenues, which doubled year over year. Partners also played a significant role in augmenting the company's professional services and support teams on a global basis as the company expanded its international footprint.

New Era of Cloud-Based Solutions and Business Intelligence

In July 2012, Adaptive Planning launched Adaptive Discovery, a breakthrough new cloud-based visual analytics solution featuring interactive data visualization and alerting and an intuitive and highly interactive way for managers across an organization to access, analyze, and explore key financial and operational data. With Adaptive Discovery, CFOs, VPs of Sales, and other business leaders can quickly and easily gain insights into the underlying trends in the business, allowing them to make more intelligent business decisions that drive greater success. In September 2012, Adaptive Planning announced the acquisition of privately-held myDIALS, the leading provider of cloud-based data visualization solutions and among the top rated BI vendors in customer service according to Gartner. With this acquisition, which provided the underlying technology for the Adaptive Discovery product, Adaptive Planning broadened the reach of its award-winning solutions beyond corporate performance management (CPM) to deliver cloud-based visual analytics and business intelligence (BI) capabilities. Now all employees can access, analyze, and explore key data from across the company, allowing them to quickly and easily visualize performance versus plans, gain new insights, understand the impact of key drivers, and take action to affect change in their business.
