Here at Information Builders, we take great pride in the variety of industry recognition we’ve been able to achieve. Not only do we continue to be named a leader among industry providers, but we consistently improve our position and rankings year after year. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that Dresner Advisory Services has ranked Information Builders second out of 25 vendors in its recent Wisdom of Crowds Cloud Computing and Business Intelligence Market Study.

Unlike many other business intelligence (BI) cloud vendors, our solution can be leveraged across the organization to empower everyone.

Moving up four spots from sixth place in 2018, we’re proud that the dedication we’ve put into developing and enhancing our WebFOCUS Total Access Cloud has again been recognized in such a highly respected report. The study is Dresner’s eighth annual, and covers end-user deployment trends and attitudes toward cloud BI and ranks vendors on the following criteria:

  • Cloud BI features
  • Cloud architecture
  • Cloud security
  • Web data connectors

Information Builders’ leading position this year owes itself to a high ranking across all four categories. Not surprisingly, user features were at the top of these rankings, with architecture and security closely following. Unlike many other business intelligence (BI) cloud vendors, our solution can be leveraged across the organization to empower everyone. This has always been a differentiator for us, and Dresner’s recognition is a great testament to our dedication to providing advanced, scalable, and easy-to-deploy solutions.

While it’s been rewarding to watch our ranking increase over the years, this positioning was borne out of our dedication and hard work towards continuous innovation and improvement. For instance, this past year we relaunched WebFOCUS to address the unmet need for ease of use, scale, and function in the competitive analytics market. Based on of our positioning across the board, it is evident that this initiative has been successfully achieved.

We’ve also expanded its relationship with Amazon Web Services (AWS), introducing Information Builders Cloud to bring simplified, end-to-end, cloud-based, and fully managed business intelligence to the market. We’re proud that these initiatives have been validated through our leadership position in the study, and we look forward to continuing with this momentum in the coming years.
