Under the terms of a deal announced today, the two companies will jointly develop a product called HyperionReady, an interface to connect Hyperion's analytical applications to the back-office automation systems from leading enterprise resource system companies.
Hyperion already has an integration deal with Baan to provide budgeting functions to Baan's financial module. Hyperion executives said this deal will provide more links between its financial analysis software and Baan's package.
Hyperion was acquired by Arbor Software, a maker of online analytical processing software, last month.
Oberon in has carved a niche for itself in the lucrative integration market. The Cambridge, Massachusetts, company makes software that acts as a data translation tool and bridge between various application packages.
