There are a number of reasons for the growing demand, including:

  • A rise in business intelligence (BI) and analytical apps that require clean data
  • The diversification of data types for data quality initiatives
  • An uptick in information governance strategy at many data organizations
  • The increase in unstructured data

Information Builders continues to lead the data quality charge, and pleased to be named as a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools. We believe firmly that data quality should be pervasive in every organization and underpin the success of both analytical and operational processes. This means everyone (business and IT) needs to take ownership of the data as it moves through the enterprise. The bottom line is that core business data needs to be treated like a balance sheet asset. To do this, you need to have processes and a methodology in place to provide for the care and feeding, preventative maintenance, and exception management for that core data.

With more complex data environments, we are seeing more critical data quality initiatives being led by the line of business and generating tremendous business value. We provide creative data integrity and integration solutions, including a data quality firewall to keep bad data out and a data stewardship portal to help impact data at all levels of the organization.

Information Builders’ mission is to help organizations transform data into business value. Data integrity plays a key part in this mission to ensure that information is accurate and trustworthy. Our integrated solution set for BI and analytics, data integrity, and integration empowers our customers to manage information from end to end – a powerful proposition.

We take great pride in helping our customers succeed and look forward to helping solve complex problems that generate significant performance improvements and business impact for our customers.
