Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI), analytics, and data management solutions, today announced a partnership with Jethro, a leading business intelligence accelerator for Hadoop. Through the partnership, Information Builders’ customers can experience the power and cost savings of Hadoop along with the impactful data visualizations and analytics of WebFOCUS for real-time operational and customer-facing BI and analytics.
When applied within the organization, operational BI enables organizations to monitor their business activity, detect and correct bottleneck issues, and understand and anticipate factors that can impact performance. Increasingly, organizations externally extend these insights through customer-facing applications that help business partners and end users succeed, further strengthening their relationship with these important stakeholders. As enterprises grow their Hadoop footprints, the need for real-time performance for operational reporting has become increasingly critical.
Using Information Builders iWay DataMigrator, organizations can easily pull their data wherever it resides into Jethro. Then through Information Builders’ optimized connector, WebFOCUS users can enjoy the benefits of indexing, dynamic cubes, query cache for all data types – whether structured or unstructured. This enables tremendous improvements in response time without the need to de-normalize the data. As a result, organizations can readily make real-time, data-driven insights available to all of their internal and external stakeholders.
Gerald Cohen, president and CEO, Information Builders, said:
“We’re thrilled to welcome Jethro into the Information Builders family. The insights that customer-facing BI and analytics applications provide can be a significant differentiator for businesses, particularly if they are able to provide real-time insights to partners, suppliers, and end users. Our partnership with Jethro provides the final link for enabling Information Builders customers to deliver high-performance, real-time insights to the masses through WebFOCUS.”
