HNTB Selects ibi to Strengthen Enterprise Information Management Program
ibi’s WebFOCUS and iWay Solutions Selected to Aggregate and Analyze Critical Business Data
New York, NY
Information Builders (ibi), a leader in business intelligence (BI), analytics, and data management solutions, announced that HNTB, a leading infrastructure solutions firm with more than 60 offices nationwide, has selected ibi as its principle Enterprise Information Management (EIM) Program data solutions partner. HNTB will be implementing ibi’s WebFOCUS and iWay solutions to build a holistic data management platform that is user friendly and encourages real-time analysis.
Similar to the data issues many organizations are facing, HNTB’s data silos weren’t delivering complete information, and the analytics process wasn’t fast or turnkey enough. This structure made it challenging for HNTB’s employees to analyze the wide pool of data derived from the company’s complex, multi-million-dollar projects. There was a great opportunity to better leverage the data, develop more timely analytics that could be tapped across the enterprise, and ensure the accuracy of all of the information generated.
HNTB evaluated and selected ibi to modernize its reporting system and build visibility throughout the enterprise, allowing users to easily and quickly access the information they need. WebFOCUS will analyze HNTB’s data for up-to-date insights, and iWay technology will integrate data from HNTB’s siloed sources. These solutions will enable HNTB business leaders to easily access, analyze, and track program progress and success.
Brian Swenson, chief process officer, HNTB, said:
“Our business has rapidly grown and evolved during our more than 100-year history and certainly our data needs have changed during that time. We recognize the power of our data and are confident that the investment in the EIM Program and our data analytics will significantly benefit business processes and growth. After a very careful review, we believe ibi is the best partner to help us make the most of our data and look forward to seeing their solutions come to life.”
Frank J. Vella, chief operating officer, ibi said:
“Many organizations have a great resource of data available, but are not maximizing its value. We’re thrilled to lend our expertise and solutions to HNTB to help them bring their vision and data potential to life. ibi’s solutions will automate HNTB’s data capture and reporting, guarantee accuracy, and deliver actionable insights. We’ve seen the change analytics can bring upon a business and know HNTB is going to be happy with the results.”
