Information Builders Named Value Leader in EMA Mid-Sized BI RADAR™ Report

Mature Comprehensive Offerings Earn BI and Analytics Provider Top Spot in Annual Assessment

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 15, 2015) - Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, today announced that it was named a value leader in the 2015 EMA Mid-Sized BI Radar Report. The evaluation was based on Information Builders' WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform.

The EMA Radar Report provides an in-depth analysis of how today's BI platforms address the needs of mid-sized businesses. Historically, those in the mid-sized category have been unable to use the power of BI and analytics in enterprise decisions due to lack of resources and dedicated internal technology teams. In recent years, however, with the rise of BI and analytics vendors, this has started to change.

The report assessed nine industry-leading vendors, their products, overall market position, and competitive standing. Vendors were evaluated across several areas, including cloud access, self-service and data discovery tools, and breadth of data access. Information Builders was recognized for offering a mature market solution featuring a full BI and analytics platform and strong integration capabilities. The company was also noted for its strong focus on data integration, data quality and data governance as well as its superior customer support and services.

"Today's evolving BI and analytics landscape is changing the game for mid-market organizations," said Lyndsay Wise, research director for Business Intelligence for EMA. "The strong offerings that we're seeing in the industry today, including Information Builders' WebFOCUS platform, are enabling mid-sized companies to unlock and utilize their data in new ways that will allow them to make more informed decisions, advance their businesses, and ultimately better compete with the bigger players. It's an exciting time in the space, and I look forward to seeing what the continual BI evolution will bring for the mid-market division."

"Information Builders has long been an advocate of making data analysis available to the masses, moving BI beyond simply an elite tool for the largest corporations," said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. "Being named a value leader in the 2015 EMA Mid-Sized Radar Report speaks to our ongoing dedication to this important group of companies. We pride ourselves on the work we've done with our many excellent mid-market customers, and we are pleased to provide the BI and analytics capabilities they need to help them meet their business goals."
