NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, data integrity, and integration solutions, today announced that for the second consecutive year, it has won a Dresner Advisory Services' Technology Innovation Award for technology leadership in embedded BI. The award program recognizes the top vendors in each of Dresner's 2016 Wisdom of Crowds series of thematic market studies, which are based on data collected from end users and provide a real-world perspective on various technical capabilities.
According to Dresner's 2016 Wisdom of Crowds™ Embedded BI Market Study, 73 percent surveyed are already using or plan to use embedded BI in the next 12 months. Organizations can empower their employees to interact with the plethora of data available to them in new and meaningful ways, without ever leaving the environment they're working in, by embedding BI and analytics capabilities directly into operational workflows. This timely, reliable, and impactful intelligence drives higher productivity, greater profits, and a stronger competitive advantage by operationalizing data and making insights actionable.
Information Builders' WebFOCUS provides a single, unified and fully customizable platform that supports data integration, data quality management, and BI and analytics. The solution features a wide range of functionality, including simple reporting, interactive queries, and predictive analytics – all of which can be embedded directly into organizations' applications and workflows. Furthermore, as users become more experienced and demand more sophisticated capabilities, organizations can easily and economically extend their application with more advanced layers of functionality.
Gerald Cohen, president and CEO, Information Builders, said:
"Information Builders has long advocated for making data-driven insights available to a variety of stakeholders within and outside of the organization, and has consistently raised the bar for BI and analytics capabilities that make that possible. It's gratifying to be distinguished once again by Dresner Advisory Services with a Technology Innovation Award for our work in embedded BI. This award showcases our commitment in helping organizations extend the information ecosystem to front line employees, customers, and partners."
Howard Dresner, founder, Dresner Advisory Services, said:
