NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2017 — Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI), analytics, and data management solutions, is heading into 2018 with a strong momentum and focus on driving customer outcomes in the connected world. The company today launched a new website and branding reflective of its focus on helping organizations derive business value from their data, which builds on recent milestones to position Information Builders and its customers for success in the new year.
Refreshed Look and Feel
2017 marked many landmark changes for Information Builders, including a growth equity investment by Goldman Sachs' Private Capital Investing group. That backing provided Information Builders with increased resources to dedicate to product innovation and customer successes, and the new branding and website is a visual manifestation of that focus. The latter is intuitive and solutions-focused, enabling visitors to easily navigate and discover how the company's solutions can drive their business forward. Information Builders' brand refresh centers on a similar theme, highlighting its unique ability to provide actionable analytics from trusted data via a single platform. Over the past several months, the company has previewed its new messaging to the customer and analyst communities to positive feedback.
Tim Brynda, software engineering architect at Ace Hardware, said:
“Ace Hardware Corporation has been an Information Builders customer for more than 10 years. During that time, I've been impressed by their singular focus on doing whatever is needed to help us attain our goals. Information Builders believes that their success and that of their customers is one and the same, and they're constantly innovating to help companies drive better decisions with their data. I recently had the chance to see the company's new branding and believe it tells this story while simultaneously highlighting the product differentiators that make Information Builders such a unique player in the industry.”
Information Builders' focus on driving strategic change for its customers is also reflected in its recently launched Accelerators, pre-built analytical content for industry-specific use cases. The technology is designed to help demonstrate the possibilities of the WebFOCUS platform, and to reduce the time to value of WebFOCUS implementations. The company is continuing to roll out Accelerators as they develop for key verticals.
Information Builders has also made a series of executive appointments designed to fuel its momentum in the year ahead. The company also announced that Frank J. Vella has joined as chief operating officer to drive its growth strategies and expansion efforts. In September, Information Builders appointed veteran industry analyst Lyndsay Wise as the solution director leading the Solution Assessment program of its Professional Services Division. The newly created role tasks Wise with engaging with customers and prospects to determine the best BI and analytics strategy for their unique needs, and also offering her industry expertise via Information Builders' blog. In addition to these strategic hires, Information Builders welcomed Peter Gyenes to its board to further its growth strategy. Gyenes brings a wealth of experience as a board member for various technology companies, and also served as CEO of Ascential Software until its acquisition by IBM.
Information Builders was the recipient of many industry accolades in 2017 that stressed its market-leading customer support as a key competitive differentiator. For example, Forrester Research noted in its recent Wave that the company received top scores on every customer survey question and was distinguished from the other vendors in the report by its customer support. Dresner Advisory Services also highlighted Information Builders' customer focus in the 2017 Wisdom of Crowds® BI Market Study, writing that the company consistently scored above the average in nearly all categories and received a perfect “Recommend” score from its customers. In addition, WebFOCUS was positioned as a Leader in the FrontRunners Quadrant for Business Intelligence software, published by Gartner-owned Software Advice. The report evaluated end-user reviews from the latter publication and other Gartner properties, and found WebFOCUS scored particularly well in the user ratings metric.

Gerald Cohen, president and CEO, Information Builders, said:
“It's been an important year for Information Builders. Following the Goldman Sachs investment, we've focused our efforts on positioning the company for long-term growth and success as an independent software provider. Evolving our brand is part of that, as it enables us to more effectively communicate the value of our products and their ability to better serve our customers' missions. This effort, coupled with our recent hires and other milestones, reflects our desire to help customers derive maximum value from their data and analytics investments. As we look to 2018, we're feeling energized and refreshed, and more committed than ever to helping customers succeed in this new connected world.”
