One of the many impacts of the global pandemic is accelerating cloud adoption. 2020 fueled many companies’ forays into cloud computing. This elevated the need for reliable, secure, and innovative tools that businesses could trust to meet their cloud demand.

The Stratus Awards recognizes individuals and companies offering some of the best in cloud innovations. In 2020, ibi is pleased to be a recipient of this award.

Cloud integrator ibi joins leading cloud vendors as 2020 Stratus recipient

For 45-years, ibi has been a global leader in innovative approaches to data capture and management. Now, the company is pleased to receive the 2020 Stratus Award in the Cloud Integrator category and join some of the biggest cloud innovators in the world as winners of this prestigious award.

The Stratus Awards seek to recognize companies that innovate in cloud computing with truly unique, differentiated services. The crowd-sourced awards platform seeks to reward “those who are uniquely adding value to our daily lives.”

Some of the recognitions available under the Stratus Award include best private and public cloud provider, best SaaS vendor, cloud telemedicine provider, and the category that ibi won—the top cloud integrator. The 2020 Stratus Award is another in a long list of technology recognitions achieved by ibi, including the most recent 2019 People’s Choice Stevie Awards for Best New Cloud Product and the 2020 Dresner Advisory Services’ Technology Innovation Awards for Cloud BI product.

ibi Cloud’s differentiator is data democratization at scale

The ibi Cloud submission for the 2020 Stratus Award emphasized our ability to leverage the cloud to democratize data for the entire enterprise. It read, in part:

“We help organizations get their complex and disconnected data in order, so they can build, embed, and automate intelligence in everything they do. By preparing organizations for the future and turning them into builders information builders, everyone can use enterprise-trusted data at scale to drive their growth.”

The ibi Cloud was recognized for its user-friendliness and speed in applying the tool for fully configured environments quickly. Simple admin interfaces belie the sophistication of this integrated product; end-users receive full visibility into everything from admin and security to audit trails and logs.

Unlike many cloud data providers, ibi Cloud bridges gaps between disparate data silos by integrating data ecosystems. Whatever the customer’s data ecosystem is, ibi Cloud can connect to it, even when competitors can’t. As the need for data integration in multifaceted enterprise organizations intensifies, having a cloud provider that can handle on-prem, hybrid, IoT, apps, and the multitude of platform connections characterized by the typical enterprise IT architecture is huge.

Like many cloud providers, it is the scalability of the ibi Cloud that attracts, but it is the flexibility of this product to support evolving workloads at the lowest operational cost that differentiates the tool from its competition.
