Information Builders and 1010data Partner to Provide Big Data Analytics

Meet customer demand for analytics solutions with Big Data offerings

Information Builders on Tuesday announced a new partnership with 1010data, Inc.. This partnership links Information Builders' popular WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform to 1010data's Big Data platform environment, improving customer analytics performance and reducing costs.

Many organizations are struggling to manage large sets of structured and unstructured data and to access this information in near real time regardless of its size or form. To help minimize these complexities and accelerate time to value of big data analytics, Information Builders and 1010data have joined forces to deliver a 1010data-exploitive version of WebFOCUS that takes advantage of 1010data's unique analytic capabilities. Using WebFOCUS, customers are able to write queries, build analytical dashboards, and produce reports that perform at near native speeds and bypass the need for intermediate table setup or summarization, as required by other SQL-based business analytics tools.

"With 1010data and WebFOCUS, joint customers can improve reliability and query performance of data sets of increasing velocity, variety, and volume," said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. "Together we're giving users immediate insights into a new world of data for better business decisions and rapid ROI."

"We are excited to enter into this partnership with Information Builders, a leader in the BI market, to help customers make better decisions faster," said Sandy Steier, CEO and co-founder of 1010data. "This partnership gives customers flexibility with a proven means of transforming data into actionable information that impacts operations and decisions day to day."

1010data and Information Builders will initially go to market in the retail industry to help retailers improve store site selection, merchandising, inventory effectiveness, product level assortments, promotional planning, and customer loyalty programs. The companies share several major retailers as customers that have already taken advantage of these powerful technologies to analyze market basket information, leading to immediate ROI.

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How?
