Over 350 Partners Benefit From Information Builders’ High-Quality Business Intelligence and Integration Solutions

London, 3rd Decmber 2002 – Information Builders, the leader in business intelligence for real-time information delivery over the Web, and iWay Software, an Information Builders company that accelerates business integration, today announced the success of their channel program in 2002. The addition of many new partners reinforces Information Builders’ ability to provide the highest quality business intelligence (BI) and integration solutions to more customers throughout the world.

In 2002, Information Builders has seen partner activity with organisations such as Ascential, BEA, IBM, Microsoft, EDS, Cognizant Technology Solutions, GSS Marketing, ESRI, Informatica, Progressive Systems Consulting, and First Rate Investment Systems. Information Builders’ programs have expanded to include more than 350 partners.

“Information Builders is a very stable software company with terrific blue-chip customers and broad horizontal market penetration in every industry,” said Larry Gordon, Vice President of Marketing at Cognizant Technology Solutions, the leading offshore IT services provider. “Their partnership program is robust and their technology provides a solid platform for core mainstream solutions."

"iWay clearly demonstrates their leadership in the enterprise integration marketplace – they offer many complementary solutions that leverage IBM's WebSphere infrastructure,” said Dan D’Augelli, IBM WebSphere Solutions. "The success of the IBM/iWay partnership is also a testament to their commitment and hard work toward partnering."

Information Builders and iWay Software Partner Programs were established with two goals in mind. First, to provide Information Builders’ customers with the best, most comprehensive technology solutions, and secondly to help partners increase and expand revenue and market opportunities by enhancing the value of their service offerings. By partnering with Information Builders and iWay Software, companies can provide their customers with proven BI and integration solutions from an established market leader.

"Members of our partner programs have chosen Information Builders because they recognise that our products are stable, proven and effective,” said Gerald Cohen, President and CEO at Information Builders. "Many Integrators and ISVs are scaling back on the number of relationships they have to focus on the ‘quality’ that the new partnerships bring to their clients, as opposed to signing up masses of vendors to influence perception. The continuing strength of our partner programs says that companies understand the value and quality Information Builders brings to their customers.”
