Zycus Among Marketshare Leaders in Automated Spend Analysis in 2007.

PRINCETON, N.J. -- Zycus Inc. (, a global leader in Spend Management software solutions, today announced that Forrester Research, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORR) a leading independent technology and market research company has released a research report on the Automated Spend Analysis Solutions market - "Market Overview 2008: Automated Spend Analysis" (April 2008).

Forrester listed Zycus as one of three vendors which have collectively garnered 64% of market share in 2007.

Anurag Dixit, VP - Marketing, Zycus Inc. said, "We are honored that Forrester has listed us among the top three market share leaders in automated spend analysis in 2007. Zycus pioneered the concept of Spend Data Management and AI based classification for detailed spend visibility. We have continuously demonstrated our commitment and ability to provide innovative solutions that have been adopted by more than 100 companies in 14 countries".

Andrew Bartels, VP and Principal Analyst, Forrester Research, Inc. wrote that vendors like Zycus "have been using both rules-based and machine-learning analytical engines for several years, have a rich knowledge base derived from work with many large clients over many years, can handle spend data in many different languages, and can provide good data importing and analytics capabilities."

The report also notes that established vendors with rich knowledge bases built from working with many clients have a decided competitive advantage.

Zycus uses patented Artificial Intelligence based software that moves beyond slice-n-dice reports that are difficult to use in an objective and result oriented process. This process based approach allows Chief Procurement Officers to set, manage and track savings and compliance mandates through a transparent and predictable process akin to a sales forecast. Zycus Actionable Spend Analysis solution presents procurement stakeholders a platform to aggregate, cleanse, classify and enrich cryptic, multilingual spend and supplier data to build a savings pipeline. This next generation solution can be quickly deployed in a SaaS mode to provide a transparent, automated and repeatable spend analysis solution to achieve consistent savings, year on year, every year.

The report also notes - "The value of spend analysis on a recurring basis is convincing more enterprises to invest in automated solutions. The value is greatest for large, global enterprises with multiple divisions and multiple ERP systems; because it is almost impossible for them to get a consolidated view of their enterprisewide spending without this kind of product. But smaller companies with a few divisions and a single ERP can also benefit from more granular categorization of their spending."
