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.

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.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
