EPM in the Cloud - Simply the Best

Remember Tina Turner’s comeback in the 1980s?  She looked great, she sounded great, she was great - and she charted a number of big hits in her comeback album Private Dancer

Later she scored another hit with the song “Simply the Best.”  That was also the theme of Host Analytics’ recent 2016 sales kickoff meeting, held in late January.  This theme is reflective of the great success we achieved in 2015 in acquiring new customers, hiring the best talent, garnering a number of awards for our products, as well as recognition from Gartner that we are the top-rated cloud EPM solution for medium to large enterprises. 

With that theme in mind, I was wondering how Tina Turner would have sung her song, “Simply the Best” if she were a Host Analytics customer.  Here’s what I came up with;

 1st Verse

I called you when I needed you, I was fed up with ExcelTina_fed_up.jpg

You came to my rescue when I was frustrated as hell

When I moved to the cloud

You gave me everything I needed

 2nd Verse         

Oracle gave me promises and a world of dreams

But when I started deploying, I really got reamed

ohh, it’s oh so wrong

Host Analytics made it better baby

 Chorus  

You’re simply the best - better than all the resttina_turner.jpg

Better than anyone, anyone in EPM

I’m a customer for life, you’re committed to my success

With your EPM cloud suite – you can meet any test

 3rd Verse

When I was working overtime - every night and every day

When my eyes were getting weary, and I wanted to run away  

You were there with open arms

There could be no better place

 Chorus

You’re simply the best - better than all the rest

Better than anyone, anyone in EPM

I’m a customer for life, you’re committed to my successTina_Turner_simply_the_best.jpg

With your EPM cloud suite – you can meet any test

 Bridge

When my budgeting process was out of control

And I was working on weekends, with all my heart and soul

When I was feeling down – and oh so alone  

I sent you an email – and you called me on the phone……

 Chorus

You’re simply the best, better than all the rest

Better than anyone, anyone in EPM

I’m a customer for life - you’re committed to my success

With your EPM cloud suite – you can meet any test

Oh, you’re simply the best!
