PivotLink Appoints Bob Kemper as Senior Vice President of Development

Business Intelligence Veteran Sees Significant Growth Potential for SaaS BI Solutions

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/24/09 -- PivotLink, the leading provider of business intelligence solutions delivered via Software as a Service (SaaS), today announced the appointment of Bob Kemper as senior vice president of development. He will lead the company's product vision, functional requirements and execution for the development of PivotLink's market-leading solutions that reach over 15,000 enterprise users. Kemper brings over 20 years of software engineering experience, including senior executive roles at PrecisionPoint Software, SPSS and Hyperion.

"Bob Kemper is a world class software development executive with a deep and rich business intelligence background and a passion for delivering the next generation business analytics solutions," said Quentin Gallivan, CEO of PivotLink. "Bob is a terrific addition to our very strong management team."

Kemper added, "The future of software delivery is through a SaaS model, particularly when it comes to bringing business analytics to a broad audience. Traditional on-premise solutions don't provide the flexibility to reach large numbers of users in a cost-effective way. The opportunity to work for PivotLink in advancing the next generation of SaaS and further solidify our leadership in SaaS BI is tremendously exciting."

Prior to PivotLink, Kemper served as vice president of engineering at PrecisionPoint Software, a pioneer in metadata-driven automation of full-featured data warehousing solutions for Microsoft Dynamics customers. He previously served as senior vice president of research and development at SPSS, where he managed SPSS' SaaS survey platform, was instrumental in building its market-leading predictive analytics solutions and re-architected its core products into a service oriented architecture (SOA) (SPSS recently announced a definitive merger agreement to be acquired by IBM). Kemper also has over 10 years of experience at Hyperion, where he most recently served as vice president of application development, helping to create the market-leading financial planning and consolidation applications and managing a team of over 200 developers.

Kemper holds patents that are credited with driving millions of dollars in savings for major companies, including early BI tools to aggregate and analyze data from disparate systems, uncover trending information, optimize processes and accelerate customer billing.

Kemper has also helped advance business intelligence standards and best practices by participating in industry consortiums such as the Object Management Group (OMG), and contributed to the development of the Java Community Process' Java OLAP (JOLAP) Interface.
