Our founders are CPM domain experts. Craig Colby was one of the founders and ran sales and marketing for UpStream Software, which was sold to Hyperion in 2006. Bob Powers was a key developer on Hyperion Enterprise and the inventor of Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM). Tom Shea was the founder and inventor of UpStream Software, which was sold to Oracle and the product lives on as Oracle Hyperion FDM.
You learn a lot from developing some of the most widely used CPM solutions in the industry. With this experience, we learned that the only way to simplify the complexities we saw our customers facing was to start over and create a truly unified financial platform that could be extended to meet multiple finance needs without additional technical complexity.
