New York, NY


Information Builders (ibi), a leader in business intelligence (BI), analytics, and data management solutions, announced today that it has been recognized as a Business Intelligence Experience Leader and a Trust Leader in Dresner Advisory Services’ 2018 Industry Excellence Awards. The award is based on ibi’s positioning in the 2018 Wisdom of Crowds® BI Market Study, in which the company earned leading scores in the Customer Experience and Vendor Credibility categories.



The 2018 Wisdom of Crowds BI Market Study used a 33-criteria performance measurement system to evaluate 27 vendors across areas including product/technology, sales and service, value, and confidence. ibi consistently scored above the sample average in nearly all categories and earned a perfect “Recommend” score from its customers, meaning 100 percent of ibi’s customer respondents would recommend the vendor to others. As a result, the company was positioned as a BI Market Leader in the study for the ninth consecutive year. ibi’s WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform helps companies use data more strategically across and beyond the enterprise.

Both tech and non-tech users have the ability to use WebFOCUS and tap into the right information delivery approach, ensuring easy access to the information they need, when they need it, to make data-driven decisions.

“The unique value of our research is in its end-user perspective of the market, both in adoption trends and intentions, and the ability to provide an unfiltered assessment of industry suppliers. Since the program began, ibi has maintained its position as a leader, and we congratulate them on their performance again this year.”
