Ventana Research's Value Index for Mobile Analytics and Business Intelligence is a quantified, research-based assessment designed to help business and IT organizations evaluate their existing suppliers and make informed decisions about new software investments. Based on a comprehensive, overall weighted evaluation of 13 vendors' products, the index revealed that Information Builders' WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform is delivering the highest overall value and best meeting buyers requirements for software that enables and supports mobile analytics and BI.

Information Builders received top billing for being the most consistent overall performer across the five product-related and two customer assurance categories evaluated. The company not only leads the market in the areas of product adaptability, capability, manageability, and reliability, but also is the only vendor to qualify as a Hot Vendor for TCO/ROI. The index found that Information Builders is the most committed to its mobile analytics and BI product line and is more sophisticated than others in the way it demonstrates product value, total cost of ownership, and total benefit of ownership. The data shows that the company also does a superior job of equipping customers with tools to measure their ROI in the WebFOCUS product.

David Menninger, senior vice president and research director, Ventana Research, said:
"Unlike other industry analyst rankings, the Ventana Research Value Index assesses the value offered by mobile analytics and business intelligence vendors and products based on their ability to address business drivers and needs versus simply delivering features and functions. A rigorous evaluation of hundreds of criteria shows that Information Builders is currently the top supplier, delivering the highest value based on an overall weighted scoring across customer assurance and product categories. Information Builders is the only supplier to earn a Hot Vendor rating this year."

WebFOCUS is a robust platform that delivers a hybrid approach to mobile BI. It enables organizations to build once and deploy anywhere -- rapidly and cost effectively. The distinctive analytic and interactive capabilities of web content and apps delivered by WebFOCUS, combined with the special abilities of WebFOCUS Mobile Faves, the company's companion native app, provide for these web apps to enrich the user experience.

Gerald Cohen, president and CEO, Information Builders, said:
"Our standing as the overall Hot Vendor in this year's Value Index and sweep of five assessment categories underscores Information Builders' unique ability to apply decades of engineering wisdom to achieve ongoing, cutting-edge innovation. It's gratifying to see further validation of what we hear from customers every day- - the WebFOCUS platform is helping them to optimize and capitalize on mobile analytics and business intelligence."
