Information Builders Honored With Multiple Awards From Midmarket Industry Organizations

BI and Analytics Provider Earns Recognition for Software Solution, Case Studies

New York, NY, May 01, 2015

Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity and integration solutions, today announced that the company has earned two Midsize Enterprise Summit XCellence Awards as well as an award for Best Midmarket Software solution at the [BE] Midmarket CIO Forum.

Information Builders again has proven its ability to successfully meet the specialized needs of companies in the midsize market by winning Best Midmarket Software Solution at both the Spring 2015 [BE] Midmarket CIO Forum and the Spring 2015 Midsize Enterprise Summit XCellence Awards; the company also received the award for Best Boardroom Case Study during the annual Midsize Enterprise Summit East event held in April in Orlando.

Midmarket companies have very specific needs that make them unique. Their scale requires technology solutions that are as robust as those needed by the largest enterprises while requiring service levels, pricing schedules, and product features personal enough for smaller companies. In winning these prestigious awards, Information Builders was chosen from a field of more than 100 vendors that attended both events, and the awards were selected by the more than 300 CIOs and IT decision-makers in attendance across each conference.

For each award, Information Builders’ WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform was recognized as a flexible, highly scalable solution that empowers users at midmarket organizations with access to data that can help them make more proactive, informed decisions. With consumer-like apps for analytics and a mobile-friendly design, WebFOCUS delivers rich information to users quickly and contributes toward business goals such as increased profitability and productivity.

The focus of Information Builders’ Boardroom Case Study at the Midsize Enterprise Summit centered on the challenge of monetizing data and how the company is helping its customers profit from data. Data monetization is the process of unlocking the significant financial value held by the data in enterprise systems. The potential to monetize data has always existed, but big data and the diversity of data streams make profiting from this information, or using it to reduce expenses, a significant challenge. In the presentation, Information Builders demonstrated how its solutions are being used to achieve data monetization at Plus Relocation Services, RainTree Oncology Services, and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

“This recognition by two distinctive midmarket enterprise groups validates that IT decision-makers in midmarket companies are finding tremendous value in our solutions,” said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. “Our customers and partners are using Information Builders’ tools to gain deeper and more actionable insights from their data that ultimately enhance the business from both a cultural and operational perspective. We continue to strive toward innovation in our mission to deliver powerful, industry-leading solutions to our customers.”
