Data and Analytics Portfolio Earns Company Value Index Leader 
Designation in Three Categories
New York, NY

Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI), analytics and data management solutions, today announced that the company earned the top overall score in Ventana Research’s 2019 Value Index for Analytics and Business Intelligence and was designated a Value Index Leader across three evaluation categories: Capability, Reliability, and Manageability.

Ventana Research’s 2019 Value Index for Analytics and Business Intelligence offers an assessment of how vendors meet buyers’ requirements for software that enables and supports analytics and BI. Leveraging methodology that mirrors how organizations assess vendors and solutions, the comprehensive report considers seven evaluation criteria weighted to reflect buyers’ needs. In this year’s report, Ventana Research evaluated 15 vendors’ solutions, including Information Builders’ WebFOCUS, iWay, and Omni-Gen™.

Information Builders earned the highest overall weighted score for its performance across all seven evaluation criteria, which include product and customer-assurance categories. In evaluating vendors for its Capability category, Ventana Research evaluated more than 500 functions in 50 categories, as well as the solutions support for collaborating, communicating, and acting on analytics. Information Builders’ designation as a Value Index Leader in this Capability category reflects its solutions’ ability to empower users with data discovery and analytical content that’s easy to find, use, and share across the enterprise.

Additionally, the Value Index recognizes the need for BI and analytics solutions that scale and perform unfailingly on existing architecture, as well as the impact that effective installations and administration matters, such as security and licensing, can have on deployments. These realities are reflected in Ventana Research’s Reliability and Manageability categories – both in which Information Builders is recognized as a Value Index Leader.

David Menninger, senior vice president and research director, Ventana Research, said:  
“The Ventana Research Analytics and Business Intelligence Value Index draws on 16 years of business and technology research and, unlike other industry analyst ratings, assesses the value offered by analytics and BI vendors and their solutions based on how they address a broad range of business drivers. Our in-depth analysis over the last year revealed that Information Builders provides comprehensive capabilities, delivering strong value to its customers, resulting in its top overall weighted score in our 2019 Value Index and recognition as a Leader for Capability, Reliability, and Manageability.”

Frank Vella, chief operating officer, Information Builders, said:
“Information Builders strives to provide data and analytics solutions that don’t just check a feature box, but actually support business needs and drive results. Our position as the overall top-scoring vendor in Ventana Research’s Analytics and BI Value Index underscores that we are delivering on this aim. We are excited to continue to partner with our customers to ensure we relentlessly deliver data innovations that help move the needle in the future.”
