Information Builders Helps SaaS Providers, Developers Gain Market Advantage With Embedded Analytics

Self-Service Analytics Integral to Cloud, On-Premise Applications Across Industries

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2014) - Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, today announced that its advanced embedded BI and analytics technology has enabled SaaS providers, software vendors, and in-house development teams to maximize the value of their applications and gain market advantage through a differentiated user experience.

In today's tech-driven business world, companies across the globe are increasingly investing in the agility and cost-effectiveness promised by the cloud. Software-as-a-service (SaaS) platforms are integral in eliminating capital expenditures, reducing risk, and easing the adoption of myriad solutions. Embedded BI and analytics tools serve as the ultimate value-add for organizations in all stages of cloud adoption because they integrate directly with existing business applications, both on-premise and in the cloud.

Information Builders is ideally suited to help companies maximize existing assets across platforms with the help of embedded BI tools. The company's WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform puts capabilities, such as dynamic reporting, predictive and advanced analytics, real-time data access, and integration directly into the end-users' hands. WebFOCUS also offers full multi-tenancy security, which allows solution rollout to an unlimited number of end users, but lets them access only what they are secured for. The platform seamlessly integrates these capabilities with existing business applications across the enterprise, including shared public-cloud and dedicated private-cloud resources. This versatility enables a diverse set of end users to easily access and benefit from a company's critical information capital.

Embedding WebFOCUS can also help users monetize data findings by reducing costs and detecting new potential avenues of revenue made obvious by added BI insight. It is an extremely flexible and customizable tool that can be effectively configured and scaled to meet the individual needs of any organization. Numerous companies have already benefited from the power of WebFOCUS embedded BI and analytics including Plex Systems, Neways, Inc., and Chrome River.

The increased focus on embedded BI is highlighted in the recent Embedded Business Intelligence Market Study Wisdom of Crowds® Report from Dresner Advisory Services, LLC. The report noted that embedded BI is in "the top third of initiatives considered strategic to business intelligence," with perceived importance of the technology on the rise. Information Builders was recognized in the report for myriad features and functionalities pertaining to embedded BI, including advanced modification and creation of objects and its analytical algorithms, mining, and predictive capabilities. The company continues to build out support for more architectures as the importance of embedded, transparent analytics grows. 

"No matter the industry, getting the most value out of technology investments is a common priority for companies across the globe," said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. "The beauty of embedded BI and analytics is that it enables companies to incorporate the power of advanced business intelligence into any existing application, both on-premise and cloud-based, thus extending the value of those investments, both in terms of functionality and reach. Information Builders is proud to equip our customers with the sophisticated BI tools needed to derive added value for users of all types across the enterprise."
