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. "And with the addition of cloud-based business intelligence, we have added a key piece in enabling business leaders to easily create financial and operating plans, monitor performance in real-time, and report on and analyze results."

Exceptional Revenue, Customer, and Company Growth

In 2012, Adaptive Planning was recognized as the 5th fastest growing software company in Silicon Valley on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™, based on a 1,099 percent revenue growth rate over four years. In addition, 48 of Adaptive Planning's customers ranked in the Fast 500 this year, up more than 50 percent from 2011.

The company added significant new venture funding in 2012, with a $22 million investment led by Norwest Venture Partners (NVP). Adaptive Planning also grew its staff by more than 85 percent during the year to support and accelerate rapid global growth.

In 2012 Adaptive Planning surpassed the 1,500 customer mark and now has 45,000 users in 80 countries worldwide. While the company's solutions serve customers of all sizes, the fastest growing segment of business comes from large enterprises, which represent 25 percent of new business. Customers span numerous industries, including business services, consumer packaged goods, education, energy, financial services, healthcare, insurance, manufacturing, media, nonprofit, pharmaceuticals, retail, and software.

Global Partner Network

In 2012, Adaptive Planning's global channel network grew by over 100 partners to more than 400 total partners, which played an increasingly important role in the company's business, influencing 50 percent of new sales. 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.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
