New York, NY – May 26, 2010 – Information Builders, an independent leader in business intelligence (BI) solutions, today announced a new partnership with 1010data, providers of high- performance, hosted data warehouse solutions. This partnership links Information Builders' popular WebFOCUS analytics solutions to 1010data’s namesake hosted database, improving customer analytics performance and lowering data warehousing costs.

“The high costs and long lead times that are typical of enterprise data warehouse solutions are eliminated because 1010data does not require the installation of software or lengthy database planning and design cycles,” said Gerald Cohen, founder and CEO of Information Builders. “Together we give users immediate insight for better business decisions and rapid ROI.”

Information Builders customers can now leverage the 1010data database solution as their enterprise data warehouse. Using 1010data, joint customers can improve performance of WebFOCUS, a flexible front-end information delivery platform, to enable fast and reliable querying of detailed data.

“Information Builders’ WebFOCUS solution is a well respected brand and we are excited to be able to work with them to help customers get the most from their IT investments,” said Joel Kaplan, President and CEO, 1010data. “We are pleased that IBI has created a ‘named’ adapter that can take advantage of the speed and performance attributes of the 1010data analytical engine. 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 are also pleased to announce a joint customer win of a major retailer with more than 8,500 stores in the U.S. The retailer has already taken advantage of these powerful technologies to analyze its market basket information, which has led to immediate ROI.
