Gartner Names Information Builders a Visionary in the Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools

BI and Analytics Provider Recognized in Annual Evaluation Based on Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 3, 2015) -  Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, today announced that it is positioned as a Visionary in Gartner Inc.'s "Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools."1

The recognition is based on the evaluation of the company's iWay Integration Suite. iWay is a flexible, agile integration foundation that offers enterprises the ability to create reusable business services from their existing applications. The technology enables organizations to ensure that every major aspect of their existing infrastructure -- integration, application, database, and development platform -- is working together to create benefits, such as developing new applications, analyzing big data, or gaining real-time visibility into business processes.

The iWay Integration Suite combines data integration, data quality, and master data management (MDM) capabilities to allow direct access to all data in order to design an architecture that meets the needs of enterprise users. iWay accelerates the deployment and reduces the risk of a variety of enterprise information integration projects and provides rapid access to accurate data across all systems, processes, and stakeholders.

According to the Gartner report, which assessed Information Builders and 12 other vendors, "Enterprise buyers increasingly see data integration as a strategic requirement, for which they want comprehensive data delivery capabilities, flexible deployment models, and synergies with information and application infrastructures."

"Achieving data integration is one of the most difficult tasks for companies because of the complexity, cost, and risk associated with getting it wrong," said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. "Information Builders is an innovator in data integration tools that give businesses the power to effectively integrate data from disparate sources, create an accurate view of that information for all users and enable better, actionable business decisions. We believe that our inclusion as a visionary in this Gartner Magic Quadrant report validates our dedication to furthering the advancement of data integration tools for enterprises."
