BI and Analytics Provider Recognized for Embedded BI and Cloud BI Excellence

New York, NY, December 21, 2015

Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, today announced that it has won two Dresner Advisory Services’ Technology Innovation Awards, for excellence in Embedded BI and Cloud BI. Launched this year, the Technology Innovation Awards recognize the top vendors in each of Dresner’s 2015 Wisdom of Crowds® thematic market studies.

Embedding BI and analytics capabilities directly into an existing business application helps users across an enterprise benefit from actionable insights and information in real time, within the context of their regular workflow. Information Builders enables users to easily embed a wide range of functionality – everything from simple reporting to interactive queries to predictive analytics – directly into existing enterprise applications. The company has long advocated for making BI insights available and accessible to a wide range of users, a position that complements its expertise in embedding BI and analytic tools directly into existing, commonly used applications.   

Cloud BI – widely considered a more cost-effective option than traditional or on-premise BI – can accelerate start up and time-to-value for BI initiatives and offers the agility needed to seamlessly add new capabilities and users as projects develop. Information Builders’ Cloud Hosting Services delivers a secure and scalable infrastructure for robust, feature-rich Cloud BI that enables the seamless deployment of even the most sophisticated reporting and analysis applications.

Information Builders’ flexible WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform features fast time-to-market for comprehensive embedded and Cloud BI initiatives that enable users to improve their value proposition, drive new revenue, and free up development staff to focus on other endeavors. The platform’s embedded capabilities and sophisticated cloud hosting services deliver superior user experience, advanced analytics, maximum flexibility and scalability, and much more.

“The goal of the Technology Innovation Award program is to highlight vendors delivering excellence across a range of BI and analytics related functionalities,” said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. “We congratulate Information Builders for its performance in Embedded BI and Cloud BI this year and for being in the inaugural class of award recipients.”
