February has been a big month for our friends at Host Analytics. Whether it was their major Winter18 Release that we will discuss in another blog, or the announcement of speakers and keynotes for their upcoming annual conference, perhaps the biggest news is the company’s announcement of two major accolades: Inclusion on The Constellation ShortList™ and being named a leader in the Nucleus Research CPM Value Matrix.
Host Analytics Named to the Constellation Shortlist
On February 20, 2018, Host Analytics announced that it was included on the Constellation ShortList™ for Cloud-Based Performance Management (CPM) in Q1 2018. Considered to be the who’s who of the software world, the ShortList starts with over a dozen vendors and whittles down the list to four based on client inquiries, partner conversations, customer references, vendor selection projects, market share, and internal research.
Only Host and three other vendors were included in the Q1 2018 Constellation ShortList based on their ability to provide the key functionalities and requirements for early adopters pursuing digital transformation initiatives. Vendors were selected for their ability to meet the following criteria:
- Rapid deployment and configuration of multi-tenant services
- Agile budgeting, planning and forecasting capabilities
- Flexible modeling capabilities
- Rich data analysis and reporting tools
- Compliant consolidation and statutory reporting capabilities
- Modern, intuitive interfaces

Host Analytics Named a Leader by Nucleus Research
As the field of competitors in the CPM Space continues to increase, it’s good to see that Host Analytics once again remains in the prestigious “Leader” category, as selected by leading analyst firm Nucleus Research. Citing a strong track record of performance and support, Nucleus Research placed Host Analytics firmly in the Leader category for its ability to build a highly usable and functional product.
In its report, Nucleus Research highlighted the introduction of three new Host Analytics products released in late 2017—Host Dashboards, Host Model Manager, and Host Solutions Exchange—underscoring the company’s continued investment in expanding its product portfolio and commitment to innovation. The Host Analytics EPM platform is used by more than 40,000 users at 700 companies worldwide.
“Customers reported that the Host Analytics user community is very positive and that they felt Host had a strong roadmap moving forward. Most users reported good support, a positive deployment process, and high ease-of-use,” said Barbara Peck, principal analyst at Nucleus Research. “With its move toward more advanced modeling, additional budgeting and consolidation functionalities, and user interface enhancements, Host Analytics will keep pace in functionality and improve in usability relative to the pace of the market in 2018.”
