Information Builders Positioned as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms

Evaluation Is Based Upon Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

NEW YORK, NY and BARCELONA, SPAIN -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- Today at the Gartner Business Intelligence and Analytics Summit in Barcelona, Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, announced that it was positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of the firm's "Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms." The recognition is based on the evaluation of the company's WebFOCUS BI solutions suite.

According to the report, the BI and analytics platform is "a software platform that delivers 15 capabilities across three categories: integration, information delivery, and analysis." In the report, Gartner states: "This emphasis on data discovery from most of the leaders in the market -- which are now promoting tools with business-user-friendly data integration, coupled with embedded storage and computing layers (typically in-memory/columnar) and unfettered drilling -- accelerates the trend toward decentralization and user empowerment of BI and analytics, and greatly enables organizations' ability to perform diagnostic analytics."

Strategic organizations are realizing the intrinsic value of deploying information to large numbers of people, both within the enterprise and to external customers, suppliers, and other parties. With its intuitive solutions and ability to support any number of concurrent users, Information Builders is uniquely positioned to help companies capitalize on this trend by better managing their data for the highest returns possible on their information investment. WebFOCUS allows even non-technical end users to access, customize, and assemble real-time interactive dashboards and run self-service reports and ad hoc queries to obtain unique insights. Advanced visualization and predictive modeling can be embedded into these solutions, enabling users to ensure that every decision is the result of analytics, regardless of their level of technical expertise.

WebFOCUS is fully integrated with Information Builders' iWay integration and information integrity solutions, allowing companies to seamlessly integrate and cleanse data from disparate sources for more accurate insight. The company's robust capabilities also extend to virtually every mobile platform -- without device-specific coding -- ensuring that customers can access and manipulate information on the go with the same functionality they enjoy in the office. Highly scalable, Information Builders' solutions can support user groups of all sizes, types, and functions and accommodate new users and applications without requiring additional infrastructure or administrative resources.

"At Information Builders, we've noticed a trend of customers viewing their existing data as an investment in the same manner they might view financial or human capital," said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. "The best way to reap the ultimate reward from this information capital investment is by giving the entire spectrum of users -- both internal and external -- the necessary tools to conduct real-time data analysis, regardless of their technical expertise. This is something Information Builders has been doing for years, and we believe our enduring position as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant is a testament to the efficacy of our solutions in this area. We're honored by the recognition and look forward to helping more companies maximize the value of their information capital."
