Information Builders Named an Overall Leader in Dresner Advisory Services Industry Excellence Awards

BI and Analytics Provider Recognized for Leadership Across All Categories of Measurement in Inaugural Awards Program
New York, NY

Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, today announced that the company was recognized as an Overall Leader in Dresner Advisory Services’ first annual Industry Excellence Awards. The award is based on Information Builders’ high rankings on two new market models unveiled in the firm’s Wisdom of Crowds® BI Market Study and reflects the value the company’s customers derive from its solutions.

The 2015 Wisdom of Crowds BI Market Study marked the sixth consecutive year that Information Builders was ranked the top vendor in its category. This year’s report introduced two new market models, the Customer Experience Model and the Vendor Credibility Model. The latter, based on vendors’ relationships with their customers, analyzed the monetary value of the product against a confidence score made up of integrity and recommend measures. The Customer Experience Model considered real-world customer experiences, including sales, service, and product and technology sentiment. Information Builders was ranked as a leader in both categories, and its distinction in the Industry Excellence Awards recognizes the company for these outstanding scores.

Information Builders’ WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform delivers rich, consumable, interactive information to a wide range of stakeholders. This ensures that all employees have access to sophisticated, customizable BI technology for improved decision-making, without requiring technical abilities or necessitating the involvement of IT. In addition, WebFOCUS can extend outside of the firewall to partners, customers and other third parties, enabling companies to strengthen relationships and operate more effectively through data-backed insights.

“We launched our Industry Excellence Awards to publicly commend leaders in the business intelligence market,” said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. “In this year’s BI Market Study, as in prior years, Information Builders demonstrated excellence, and a result is recognized as an Overall Leader in our inaugural awards program. We congratulate them on their performance this year.”

“Information Builders considers our customers’ experiences to be of paramount importance,” said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. “Nothing pleases us more than to know that they are obtaining actionable insights and value from their BI and analytics investments. We’re incredibly pleased to receive this recognition in Dresner Advisory Services’ Industry Excellence Awards, and are humbled to see our customers rate our solutions so highly.”
