Data and Analytics Leader Examines Factors Contributing to Company's Sustained Growth

NEW YORK, Feb. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, data integrity, and integration solutions, is primed for a successful 2017 based upon the achievements of the past year. The company continues to focus on making trusted data and analytics accessible to wider audiences, claiming some of the industry's largest BI and analytics deployments worldwide via its WebFOCUS platform.

Information Builders is also helping its customers move beyond dashboards and data visualization tools to information applications, or InfoApps™. These InfoApps unlock more value by virtue of being aligned operationally with decision-makers and performance goals. On the data management side, the company has strengthened its big data portfolio – recognizing the potential of operationalizing Internet of Things (IoT) data – and packaged its data management solutions for easier consumption to drive process and analytics improvements enterprise-wide.
