Forrester Names Information Builders as Strong Performer
Bangalore: Forrester Research, Inc. has termed Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, as a "Strong Performer" in its June 2012 report, "The Forrester Wave: Self-Service Business Intelligence Platforms, Q2 2012," by Boris Evelson.
The report, which focused on BI vendors with self-service platform offerings, considered three main sets of criteria in its assessment: current offering, strategy, and market presence. It found that relying too heavily on IT-centric BI support models is unsustainable in today's business environment. Self-service BI features are key to empowering business users.
In the report, Evelson notes the competitive BI functionality that Information Builders' WebFOCUS platform delivers for business users. He describes "the hidden gem inside WebFOCUS: the Visual Discovery product, which offers a respectable in-memory data exploration and discovery alternative to offerings from other, well-known in-memory BI vendors." Forrester also recognizes Information Builders' InfoAssist query builder and Active Technology reports capabilities.
"In today's business world, the range of BI functionality is constantly evolving and delivering new insights and capabilities to users across industries," said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. "Our developers are dedicated to staying on the forefront of today's exciting BI technology. Forrester's evaluation of Information Builders as a strong performer for self-service business intelligence programs is a testament to that fact, and we're proud of our efforts to constantly evolve our offerings and serve our clients with the highest performing BI technology available," he continued.
