2016: We Couldn't Have Done It Without You!
At the close of another year (and the beginning of a new one), it's always gratifying to look back at what one has accomplished. In reviewing the past 12 months, we are most proud of the honors our customers have won for excellence in business intelligence (BI) and analytics. Of course, we're also grateful for the industry recognition we received for our technology innovations, the business value our solutions provide, and our unwavering commitment to customer service and support.
In 2016, Information Builders earned more than 25 honors, which include awards and rankings from analyst firms, media outlets, and independent industry groups across the globe. Below is just some of the acknowledgement we celebrated this year.
- Information Builders was named a Leader in Gartner's 2016 Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools
- We were ranked as the Top Vendor among our peers in business benefits and operational BI in BARC's The BI Survey 16
- CRN named our WebFOCUS Business User Edition one of the “coolest big data products of 2016”, and it was a finalist for the publication's 2016 Products of the Year as well as its Tech Innovator Awards program
- In Ventana Research's Mobile Analytics and BI Value Index, we were awarded a “Hot Vendor” designation, ranking first overall
- BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee received two awards from IDG Enterprise at the Agenda16 Conference as a result of its work with us
- We received a Vendor Excellence Award for Best Midmarket Solution at the Midmarket CIO Spring Forum for the WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform
- Trustmark Companies, one of our customers, was one of 50 organizations commended for solving business challenges with analytics in the first annual Analytics 50 awards program
These accomplishments validate the outstanding effort that our employees and executive leadership put forth each day. (In fact, if you'd like to “meet” some of the talent that has helped us achieve so much, check out Information Builders' “Ask the Expert” video series here.)
And, we couldn't achieve any of this without our partners and fabulous customers. The reason that we've been so successful for more than four decades, delivering BI and analytics solutions that continue to define and lead the industry, is because of the collaborative effort of this world-class team! We thank everyone for another noteworthy year.
We look forward to what 2017 has in store!
