Information Builders Cloud

Information Builders Cloud is the result of a strategic partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS). The scalability, security, usability, and governance of our award-winning platform aligns seamlessly with the power and flexibility of AWS.

On-Demand Analytics and Data Management 

BI Cloud

Cloud solutions provide many benefits over traditional infrastructure, such as improved performance, lower upfront investment, and greater flexibility and scalability to handle growth and unanticipated demand. Information Builders Cloud delivers enterprise business intelligence (BI), analytics, and data management with Amazon Web Services (AWS) in the cloud.

Additionally, Information Builders Cloud supports many of the services available on AWS, including EC2, S3, Athena, Redshift, and auto-scaling. The result is a comprehensive, on-demand platform for analytics and data management – with less time, cost, and risk, and without the need to engage multiple vendors.

The Power of AWS and Information Builders

Via Information Builders’ status as a Consulting Partner in the AWS Partner Network, organizations can leverage a comprehensive and extensive analytics and data management platform in the cloud without engaging multiple vendors. Information Builders provides a single-source AWS solution for software, on-boarding, account management, cloud managed services, and customer support.

Through our Consulting Partner certification, we also provide certifications, support, and access to AWS capabilities. Unlike other cloud solutions, which have complicated pricing structures that can total tens of thousands of dollars annually, our pricing model is simple and straightforward.
