NEW YORK, Feb. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, data integrity, and integration solutions, today announced that it has been ranked a market leader in the BARC Score Business Intelligence (Enterprise BI Platforms). Developed by the Germany-based Business Application Research Center, the BARC Score Business Intelligence (Enterprise BI Platforms) is an evaluation of top vendors worldwide delivering modern enterprise BI platforms that fulfill a broad set of BI requirements and support a wide range of use cases.
As defined by BARC, a modern enterprise BI platform must be able to span traditional and explorative BI and analytics requirements for both standalone data and information applications, and when embedded in operational applications. The BARC Score ranking is based on the Center's expert analysis as well as data points from the industry's largest independent global survey of BI end users. The BI Survey 16, released last fall, revealed that Information Builders outperforms its competition in business benefits, operational BI, flexibility for users, and vendor support, among other metrics.
Information Builders was positioned as a market leader in the BARC Score Business Intelligence for Enterprise BI Platforms for achieving high marks across the two evaluation categories – Portfolio Capabilities and Market Execution. The company earned an exceptional score for the features and functionality of the WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform, and rated well across the sub-criteria for Market Execution, including sales and marketing strategy, financial performance, and customer feedback.
The flexibility and scalability of WebFOCUS' reporting capabilities were cited among the platform's key strengths, along with its "uniquely wide range of data sources" and inherent support for operational BI. The content export features of Information Builders' InfoAssist+ solution for ad hoc reporting, query and data discovery, and the company's InfoApps for the development of predefined interactive applications for business users were also highlighted as strengths in the assessment.
Dr. Carsten Bange, founder and CEO, BARC said:
"Information Builders' WebFOCUS merited strong ratings across all of the various functional areas we evaluated for this BARC Score, earning the company noteworthy positioning within the market leader class. From what our analysis revealed, Information Builders delivers a highly competitive, modern enterprise BI platform that has a long track record of success in supporting a breadth of key organizational requirements and use cases."
