New York, NY

Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, today announced that it was the top ranked vendor in numerous categories in its peer groups in the industry’s largest independent global survey of BI end users. Conducted by German-based Business Application Research Center (BARC), the BI Survey 15 cited vendor support, implementer support, and operational BI as among Information Builders’ chief competitive differentiators.

The BARC survey evaluated Information Builders’ WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform in two peer groups: Large Deployments and Large International Vendors. In addition to being the top ranked vendor in the latter peer group for operational BI, seats per admin, as well as vendor and implementer support, Information Builders was positioned as a leader in an additional 13 categories. The company was also the top ranked vendor in these four categories in the large deployments peer group. In addition, Information Builders ranked first across another 14 metrics in the large deployments peer group, including business benefits, project success, performance, ease of use, flexibility for users, and customer satisfaction.

Information Builders’ WebFOCUS platform is designed to make BI and analytics consumable to the widest range of stakeholders across varying levels of technical abilities. As a result, knowledge workers and other non-analyst functions have access to real-time information to improve decision-making and operate more effectively. These benefits are further strengthened by Information Builders’ InfoApps™, which enable these mainstream users inside and outside of the firewall to quickly obtain answers from relevant data sets. Highly flexible with the ability to quickly scale, WebFOCUS can easily accommodate the growing information delivery needs of today’s increasingly data-driven enterprise. In addition, the company’s award-winning service department provides customers with continuous, global support to ensure that their BI implementations run smoothly.

“Information Builders is notable not only for the business benefits companies derive from its solutions, but also for the way in which it honors its commitment to its customers,” said Dr. Carsten Bange, CEO and founder of BARC. “Its positioning as the top ranked company for vendor support in both peer groups underscores the great regard in which organizations hold its customer care. We congratulate Information Builders on achieving this market-leading ranking, along with the other high marks it earned in our annual survey.”

“Nothing is more important to Information Builders than the success of our customers,” said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. “We’re deeply honored to be ranked first across so many categories in the BI Survey, as it shows that companies worldwide are operating more effectively as a result of implementing our technology. As we continue innovating our solutions and providing high-quality customer support, we look forward to helping more organizations realize the returns of better utilizing their data.”
