Company's Third Award Honor in 2011; The Only SaaS-Based CPM Suite Recognized by Expert Judges for Achievement & Innovation

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 14, 2011) - Host Analytics, the leading provider of SaaS-based corporate performance management (CPM) solutions, today announced that its CPM Suite has been named a "Best Business/Competitive Intelligence Solution" and "Best Financial Management Solution" finalist by the 2011 Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, for its 26th annual CODiE Awards. Host Analytics has seen tremendous industry momentum on the award front for 2011 thus far, earning three major product and company accolades.

"We are excited to be named as the only CPM solution provider finalist in two categories for this year's CODiE Awards, and we are honored to be given such recognition by our peers," said Jon Kondo, CEO at Host Analytics. "Awards such as this confirm the value and quality of our unique SaaS-based approach to CPM, and we are thrilled to be at the forefront of this technology shift."

One hundred thirty-one nominations from 98 companies were selected as finalists from among 395 total nominations. Each underwent intense review by subject matter experts, analysts and journalists who selected finalists from various categories. Winners will be announced Wednesday, May 25, at the CODiE Awards luncheon, to be held as part of the SIIA All About the Cloud conference.

"We are pleased to have such a diverse range of companies and products as finalists this year," said Rhianna Collier, vice president of the SIIA Software Division. "The competition is always tough, and it reflects the level of innovation across a wide range of companies in this industry. The growth in participation certainly mirrors what we are seeing as priorities in the business software market -- especially the need for effective integration of applications and demand for powerful security solutions."

The Software Publishers Association (SPA), now SIIA, established the CODiE™ Awards, originally called the Excellence in Software Awards, in 1986 so that pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could evaluate and honor each other's work. Since then, the CODiE Awards program has carried out the same purpose -- to showcase the software and information industry's finest products and services and to honor excellence in corporate achievement.
