Forrester Research Taps Information Builders as a Leader in Report on Enterprise Business Intelligence Platforms [Professional Services Close - Up]

(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Information Builders, a provider of business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, announced that Forrester Research, Inc. has recognized the company as a Leader in its report, "The Forrester Wave: Enterprise Business Intelligence Platforms, Q4 2013." According to a release, the recognition is based on an evaluation of the company's WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform.

Information Builders noted that the report, authored by Boris Evelson, evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of top industry vendors with a focus on core BI capabilities, including data visualization, analysis or OLAP, exploration and discovery, dashboards, performance management, predictive analytics, and reporting and querying. The report found that as the BI software market becomes increasingly crowded, true vendor differentiation is in the details, and factors other than core BI functionality -- such as how well offerings integrate with enterprise ERP, ETL, portal, and desktop applications -- often influence platform selection.

Further, in the report, Evelson notes that WebFOCUS offers users, "excellent data integration, information delivery, overall technical architecture, scalability, analytics, MDM, performance management, reporting and querying, and operational capabilities." The Forrester Wave also recognizes the positive feedback from WebFOCUS customers and the company's ability to step in at anytime "with a platform to support all BI needs." "As today's businesses are confronted with a growing amount of complex data, having access to a high-performing BI and analytic solution has become an imperative to gain valuable insight and make effective use of business-critical information," said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. "Information Builders is dedicated to delivering the most innovative and capable BI platform available to our customers. We believe our recognition as a leader in the Forrester Wave for enterprise business intelligence platforms is testament to our commitment to continually evolving our offerings and providing our customers with the highest performing BI technology available in today's market." Information Builders' WebFOCUS is a scalable BI and analytics platform that helps organizations use information to their competitive advantage by empowering more people with the right information at the right time. WebFOCUS provides self-service analytics optimized for every type of user: easy-to-use analysis, reporting, and query tools for information specialists, a BI Portal and InfoApps for non-technical and business users, and data visualization and advanced analytics for business analysts. Moreover, WebFOCUS ensures data quality and consistency even when accessing complex, disparate systems with its integrated Data Quality and Integration Suites.
