Information Builders' Omni-Gen Wins Gold in Best in Biz Awards 2016 International
Industry Analysts and Media Recognize Platform With Top New Product Honors
New York, NY, September 01, 2016
Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, data integrity, and integration solutions, today announced that the company has been named the gold winner in the Best New Product of the Year – Enterprise category in the Best in Biz Awards 2016 International. Information Builders was recognized by the program, the only independent global business awards judged by members of the press and industry analysts, for its Omni-Gen™ product, which accelerates the value of master data management (MDM), data quality, and data integration implementations.
Data quality, data warehousing, MDM, and other complex information management projects have historically been viewed as time and resource intensive and, as a result, many organizations are hesitant to implement them. Those that have embraced them often struggle to demonstrate their value, as projects can quickly become unwieldy and take longer to complete than anticipated.
Omni-Gen™ addresses these concerns by codifying and automating MDM processes that are usually implemented manually – for example, data integration, cleansing, and mastering. Rather than spending months on development, the solution enables companies to develop the models and golden records needed for a result and then automatically generates the items needed to jumpstart the job. As business needs change, models can be altered and artifacts regenerated to support rapid, agile, iterative development. Because of this reduced cycle time, early adopters of Omni-Gen™ have reported that projects with an anticipated 18-month timeline have been completed in six months.
In addition to significantly reducing development cycles, Omni-Gen™ reduces the time to value of analytics. Users can easily create data marts, visualizations, and reports from the MDM model prior to the repository being fully populated, ensuring that analytics do not lag data availability.
Gregory Dorman, senior vice president and general manager, iWay, said:
“Omni-Gen™ provides an entirely new way of approaching MDM. With the platform, it’s no longer a cumbersome process requiring significant time and monetary investments, but rather a project that can be easily implemented and quickly delivers results. This recognition by the Best in Biz Awards International validates that the industry recognizes the potential Omni-Gen™ has to revolutionize the market.”
More than 270 public and private companies hailing from all sectors of the global economy from more than 30 countries competed in Best in Biz Awards’ fourth annual International program. Best in Biz Awards 2016 International honors were once again presented in a range of categories, including Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, Most Innovative Company of the Year, Support Department of the Year, Most Innovative Product, Enterprise Product, and Consumer Product of the Year.
The award program’s uniqueness stems, in part, from the composition of its judging panel. Only writers, journalists, and contributors to business, consumer, financial, trade, and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms, are invited to serve as judges each year. Structured this way, Best in Biz Awards is able to leverage the experience and expertise of an influential group of global opinion-makers to determine award winners.
