The following companies will be honored during the opening ceremony at Summit 2016:
Allegis Global Solutions (AGS), a subsidiary of Allegis Group, transforms how businesses acquire talent, with a culture that is passionate about great talent, delivering innovative, client-focused solutions in markets across the globe. AGS, through its ACUMEN Workforce Intelligence Platform, has extended its WebFOCUS dashboards to a large portion of its workforce and continues to roll out new functionality to new users every day. Its robust analytic environments feature exciting functionality and spectacular content, streamlining the operation and giving AGS a competitive edge against other staffing companies. WebFOCUS is its enterprise standard for historical reporting, and it is in the process of rolling out predictive analytics using RStat, Information Builders’ fully integrated BI and data mining environment.
AutoZone is the leading retailer and distributor of automotive replacement parts and accessories in the U.S. It wanted to roll out a flexible analytics environment to thousands of stores without burdening field workers with custom software or complex reporting procedures. With the help of Information Builders, the company worked with existing computers, databases, and information systems to create a self-service reporting and analytics system that casual users could quickly adopt. Now AutoZone’s web-based analytics environment delivers accurate information throughout the enterprise and helps to automate key business processes, from store operations to customer satisfaction reporting.
The City of Irving, Texas, the 13th largest city in the state, wanted to make it easier for city officials and department staff to monitor the city’s performance and trends. With Information Builders’ Performance Management Framework, the City used performance metrics to identify opportunities for improvement, incorporating process improvement methodologies and innovative approaches that resulted in more than $44 million in cost savings, more than 50,000 hours of increased productivity, and $25 million in increased revenues. The City continues to focus on performance measures to determine areas of strategic focus and resource allocation. Irving is one of just two municipalities to have received the Malcolm Baldrige Award, the highest presidential honor given to organizations that exhibit performance excellence.
Pershing, a BNY Mellon company, provides global financial business solutions to advisors, asset managers, broker-dealers, family offices, registered investment advisor firms, and wealth managers. With WebFOCUS, Pershing delivers targeted analytical information to more than 100,000 financial professionals without requiring them to learn complex technology. Working with Information Builders has enabled Pershing to create a powerful BI environment that delivers accurate financial information to significantly improve the customer experience.
St. Luke’s University Health Network (SLUHN) is a non-profit, regional, fully integrated, nationally recognized network providing services at six hospitals and more than 200 sites, primarily in Lehigh, Northampton, Carbon, Schuylkill, Bucks, Montgomery, Berks, and Monroe counties in Pennsylvania and in Warren County, New Jersey. St. Luke’s chose Omni-Patient™ and other Information Builders technologies to roll out an Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) and BI platform. Thanks to Omni-Patient’s capabilities and an innovative agile implementation approach that includes multiple parallel data governance, master data management, data integration, and analytics deployment projects, St. Luke’s was able to integrate 18 major data sources and deploy 25 BI applications to several hundred users in just 12 months. This platform helps clinical and administrative users to better understand population needs, deliver consistent care and improve operational performance throughout the health network. The advancement of healthcare analytics is a strategic objective for St. Luke's to support value-based healthcare. Tremendous progress has been made in a short period and Information Builders has provided key enabling technology.
