Star Analytics Extends Star Finance Command Center to the Cloud

Empowers Business Users to Improve Financial Consolidation, Planning, Analysis and Compliance by Running and Monitoring Finance Application Processes in the Cloud

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2010) -  Star Analytics, Inc., the leader in financial application process automation and integration software, today announced the Star Finance Command Center Cloud Service. The enhancements to its flagship product address the explosion of finance data and business intelligence applications spanning private and public clouds and on-premise applications.

The Star Analytics finance automation platform is now available via the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), with other web services platforms available later this year. The Star Finance Command Center is used by enterprises across major industries to manage and automate disparate planning, analysis, reporting and consolidation environments with applications, data warehouses and business intelligence tools from multiple vendors.

"Finance process management and compliant automation have become a priority for the office of the CFO as finance systems mature and hybrid enterprise performance management (EPM) and business intelligence (BI) environments become more pervasive and distributed," said Quinlan Eddy, CEO, Star Analytics. "The Star Finance Command Center's open design makes it easy and secure to run and integrate with Cloud-based or on-premise applications, providing an open, connected ecosystem of automated processes that empower business users to run and monitor their applications for faster business decisions."

With its automation repository, the Star Finance Command Center Cloud Service removes the costly burden of redundant, hard-wired, scattered scripts and automation files from multiple application server machines to a single, secure cloud location. Using secure (HTTPS) real-time streaming of dynamic, variable driven automation files, processes can be easily chained together across multiple cloud or on-premise instances of finance application servers. This provides the best of both worlds, retaining all financial data on premise, but providing a true cloud solution to run, manage and monitor automations from a secure and hosted cloud. Real-time alerts via web enabled dashboards or Smartphones quickly notify secured business users of their critical application processes.

Experience it Live!

A live connection to Star Finance Command Center running on an Amazon Web Services cloud is now available to demo from Smartphones or other web enabled devices. To find out more, visit: http://www.staranalytics.com/products/command_center_cloud.htm.
