Why Scale Matters for Data and Analytics

You would think that as businesses gain more data, that their decision-making would improve, but it’s not as straightforward as that. Today we’re dealing with more complex data than ever before. And because we live in a faster-paced, competitive business environment, the speed at which you extract insights and knowledge from that data becomes a critical success factor for an organization. To achieve speed, you need scale. This is what sets Information Builders apart. We provide a highly scalable data and analytics software platform that makes trusted data easy to access and analytics easy to create and consume.

This is what scale means to us:

  • The most diverse and challenging data environments (bring it on!)
  • Every use case and every user across the enterprise, both inside and outside of the organization (proud of our industry-leading user adoption rates)
  • Enterprise-class deployments that never hit the wall (unlike other BI tools that choke on the big complex applications)

Our unified platform approach allows us to focus on these cornerstones so that customers can best derive value from their data – as fast as the digital age demands.

When I took the helm of this dynamic company this year, I knew that maintaining this successful heading would involve a renewed emphasis on our “customers first” approach, anchored by industry-leading technology innovation. It’s the best of both worlds: modern technology backed by decades of proven mission-critical deployments, and the wealth of knowledge and creativity that comes from that experience.

Make no mistake about it, legacy is power.

We’re dealing with more complex data than ever before. And because we live in a faster-paced, competitive business environment, the speed at which you extract insights and knowledge from that data becomes a critical success factor for an organization.

We’ve seen strong revenue growth during 2018, with new customers that represent a broad spectrum of industries, from the public sector and insurance to supply chain and manufacturing. Many of these organizations have embraced our newly launched cloud offering as the ideal deployment model for our business intelligence (BI), analytics, and data management solutions. We will continue to capitalize on these established markets, even as we explore emerging market opportunities connected with digital transformation initiatives, including IoT, AI, and Advanced Analytics.

Information Builders’ unique culture, exceptional product set, and dedicated customer service team will continue to evolve with the broad trends of the industry, but we won’t deviate from our core mission: to help customers thrive through the pervasive use of trusted data and analytics, at scale, throughout every dimension of their business.
