Information Builders Partners With Integral Systems to Deliver Human Capital Solutions and Seamless Integration of OnDemand Software as a Service

WebFOCUS Helps Integral Customers Optimize Reporting Environment

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 17, 2008) - Information Builders, the independent leader in operational business intelligence (BI) systems, and Integral Systems, leading provider of premier human capital solutions, today announced an agreement designed to optimize Integral's i-Trust OnDemand product suite with Information Builders business intelligence technology. The combined offering incorporates Information Builders WebFOCUS into Integral's i-Trust, creating an HR, talent management, and payroll product suite to help customers obtain real-time data in an easy to use, drag and drop report-development environment.

"By integrating business intelligence tools with HR products and services, Information Builders is meeting the changing demands of the human capital industry," said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. "We are working with Integral to provide the tools and support needed to satisfy the employee and talent-management needs, critical to today's business model."

Integral services more than 1.2 million users and clients across multiple Fortune 1000 companies. Realizing that an organization's most critical asset is its people, Integral's i-Trust product suite offers an integrated solution to helping organizations better manage their workforce from applicant tracking and onboarding, to benefits management, and payroll processing, to leadership development and succession planning. Based on more than 30 years of industry experience Integral's i-Trust product suite is delivered through an OnDemand "pay as you use" pricing model.

The inclusion of WebFOCUS, the comprehensive and fully integrated enterprise business intelligence and reporting platform developed by Information Builders, offers a great advantage to Integral's solution. Real-time updates give clients the power to leverage Integral's product suite without the cost or resources required for an internal implementation and also gives them greater flexibility, whether they are an international firm using internal systems or a small company operating "virtually" on the Web.

With WebFOCUS, Integral's i-Trust product suite puts HR and payroll data at the user's fingertips. Reports can be produced in multiple formats, including HTML, Excel, and PDF, allowing for the integration of any report element into a range of other reports, including Web and news searches about your company -- and the tables, charts, and graphs it creates can be readily adapted for presentations or handouts. Other reporting and analysis features include: dashboards, a reporting repository, a library of fully developed parameter-driven reports, visualization tools, and online analytical processing.

"Incorporating Information Builders business intelligence reporting and analytics into Integral's product suite is a great benefit to our customers," said Scott Macdonald, Integral's president. "As Integral continues to bring best-of-breed solutions to the human capital management space, our relationship with Information Builders ensures that key performance indicators and benchmark information will be more accessible to industry-leading businesses in a one-stop solution."
