TORONTO, February 17 /PRNewswire/ --

- Large and Mid-Market Organizations Deploy Clarity's Industry Leading CPM Solution Together With Microsoft's BI Technology

Clarity Systems, a leader in corporate performance management (CPM) and a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, today announced that a rapidly growing number of customers are selecting Clarity's CPM solutions to complement their Microsoft Business Intelligence (BI) foundation.

The number of new Clarity CPM customers running Clarity 6 on Microsoft's technology has dramatically increased over the past two years, says Mark Nashman, President and CTO, Clarity Systems. We believe Clarity's use of 100 percent Microsoft technology - such as MS SQL Server and MS Office together with tight integration to MS SharePoint Server - resonates with companies making us the clear CPM leader for Microsoft platforms. And Microsoft's recent exit from the CPM market makes Clarity the ideal complement to any Microsoft BI deployment.

We chose Clarity for our performance management and external reporting needs, in large part given the ability of Clarity's solutions to take full advantage of the native Microsoft technology we have in place, fully integrating with and leveraging our MS SQL Server and Analysis Services resources, confirmed Torquil Sligo-Young, Human Information Resources Director at Young Co.'s Brewery, PLC.

Clarity remains the largest independent CPM vendor with a global implementation and services team deploying solutions based on Microsoft's technology across the Americas, Europe and Asia. Clarity is ranked as having the No. 1 Budgeting and Planning software solution by Forrester Research, scoring the highest of 10 vendors in the planning and budgeting solution category in The Forrester Wave: Business Performance Solutions, Q4 2007 report. As well, BPM Partners ranked Clarity as No. 1 in overall Customer Satisfaction in their latest customer survey, Beyond the Hype 2009: An Unbiased Look at BPM Vendors and Trends.
