Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute


New York, NY


Information Builders (ibi), a leader in business intelligence (BI), analytics, and data management solutions, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. as the only Visionary in the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools*1.


ibi offers iWay central data integration platform and its additional tools; iWay Service Manager, iWay DataMigrator, and the iWay Universal Adapter Suite.



Data silos are one of the biggest challenges for businesses looking to harness the full value of analytics. Modern enterprises have a growing number of information sources that span internal, partner, and third-party applications that often lead to information silos and insights guided by a narrow or incomplete view of the business. A robust data integration tool can help break down those silos and deliver the complete and the holistic business view necessary for strategic decisions and improving operational efficiencies.


Consider the following iWay solutions:


  • Omni-Gen™ is the central iWay platform for data integration, data quality, and master data management applications. This highly powerful solution drastically reduces the time for integration projects and ensures that enterprise-wide data sources are combined efficiently
  • iWay Service Manager is a highly scalable, customizable integration solution that delivers rapid access to up-to-date, accurate data across all systems. It allows organizations to reuse existing applications and infrastructure to create highly optimized internal and external web-based services
  • iWay DataMigrator is designed to facilitate and automate the extraction of data from various sources. This drastically simplifies the user process as the data “transformation” into usable data is completely automated
  • iWay Adapter Suite helps organizations break down any data silos and easily unify existing data sources. The suite comprises more than 300 adapter technologies with each adapter containing predefined user interfaces, eliminating the need to modify existing systems or write additional code

Frank J. Vella, chief operating officer, ibi, said:
“We are thrilled to be recognized as the only Visionary in the Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools. We believe it’s a testament to our work, iWay’s powerful data integration capabilities and the superior customer service we deliver. Data integration is a crucial aspect of analytics and BI as digital enterprise technologies, including blockchain and the Internet of Things, become increasingly advanced. We’ll continue to strive to innovate the iWay solution to always stay ahead of our customers’ needs.”
