ibi Receives Top Ratings in BARC's "The BI and Analytics Survey 21" for the Seventh Consecutive Year


NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Information Builders, Inc. (ibi), a leading end-to-end data and analytics software company, today announced that it received numerous high marks in the Business Application Research Center's (BARC) BI and Analytics Survey 21. The research concluded that ibi is a leader in 34 categories, receiving 22 top-rankings in its peer groups, including #1 in the customer experience, customer satisfaction and support, price-to-value, and operational BI KPIs for the peer group ‘Large global enterprise BI platforms.'

ibi is featured in three peer groups, including large global enterprise business intelligence (BI) platforms, large international BI vendors, and embedded analytics-focused products. According to those surveyed, ibi provides broad BI and analytics functionality that performs well in "modern" scenarios, such as operational, embedded, or mobile BI – all while maintaining a customer orientation that includes strong vendor support and sales experience.

"ibi achieved excellent results in this year's The BI and Analytics Survey by providing a high level of benefits and delivering solid and reliable products to its customers," said Dr. Carsten Bange, founder and CEO, BARC. "Because operational analytics is a particular focus and strength of the ibi platform, customers seem more likely to adopt it throughout the organization than users of competing products. Survey results also demonstrate that ibi is one of the best large, global BI vendors in terms of providing a high level of customer support."

The report cites comments from ibi customers on what they like most about the company and its products, including:

  • Always evolving to fit needs
  • Handling large volumes of data and returning valuable answer sets quickly
  • Making anything possible through its robust platform
  • Allowing large numbers of users and activity through a non-persistent connection
  • Providing a wide range of functions in one platform instead of several smaller tools, with extensive possibilities for designing reports
  • Supporting low administration effort, including automated job scheduling and web services
  • Affording ease of use and robustness

"We are excited to be once again recognized as an industry leader in BI innovation, product functionality, and customer support," said Eric Raab, senior vice president, Engineering, ibi. "It's especially gratifying to receive these stellar reviews from our customers for helping to solve their most complex data and analytics challenges."
