Information Builders Honored With Four Midsize Enterprise Summit XCellence Awards

Business Intelligence Provider Wins Best Midmarket Software Solution and Best of Show Awards at Annual Event

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 7, 2014) - Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity and integration solutions, today announced that the company has received four Midsize Enterprise Summit XCellence Awards. Information Builders was honored in the categories of Best Midmarket Software Solution, Best Execution of a Midmarket IT Solution, Best Boardroom Case Study Presentation, and Best of Show.

The Midsize Enterprise Summit XCellence Awards were announced at the annual Midsize Enterprise Summit East 2014, held April 27-29, 2014 in Orlando, FL. The Summit XCellence Awards are a reflection of vendor products, services, presentations, and overall presence at the conference, as determined by the more than 220 CIOs and IT decision-makers who attend the event.

Information Builders' WebFOCUS BI platform, for which the company received three XCellence awards, is a flexible and scalable solution that delivers rich, consumable, interactive information to a wide range of key stakeholders, including employees, partners, analysts, and customers. WebFOCUS offers midmarket companies a powerful, customizable BI platform that delivers the insights needed to improve business decision-making and boost productivity and revenue.

In addition to the four company honors, Information Builders customer Gregg Oosterbaan, vice president of Technology Services at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, was also named to the inaugural Top 20 Most Innovative Midmarket CIO list. Oosterbaan was recognized for his work in bringing BI insight and advanced analytics and reporting capabilities to the Columbus Zoo.

Information Builders was also recognized at last year's Midsize Enterprise Summit East, where the company received the Best Midmarket Software Solution award for WebFOCUS and the Best Boardroom Case Study award following a presentation on its work with Food for the Poor.

"We're thrilled to be recognized by the Midsize Enterprise Summit XCellence Awards for the second year in a row. These awards are especially meaningful as they are bestowed by the IT decision-makers who have first-hand experience interacting with our solutions," said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. "Information Builders is dedicated to delivering the tools and insights that enable our clients to improve decision-making, enhance business processes, and grow their companies. These acknowledgements support our mission to deliver powerful, industry-leading solutions to our valuable midmarket customers."

In April, Information Builders' WebFOCUS was also recognized with the Best Midmarket Software Solution award from the [BE] Midmarket CIO Forum, further testament to the value that the platform delivers for companies in this key sector.
