Information Builders, the provider of business intelligence, analytics, data governance and integration solutions, has announced the appointment of InfoBuild as a new full representative in South Africa.
“InfoBuild, which will only focus on Information Builders solutions and services, will allow us to expand our user base in southern Africa, as well as confirm our ongoing commitment to the South African market, especially to our current users,” says Michael Corcoran, chief marketing officer of Information Builders, based at HQ in New York.
InfoBuild MD, Johan Jurd, says InfoBuild began operations locally at the end of last year, and the company has already secured a number of contracts. Currently there are over 20 large Information Builder sites in SA.
“InfoBuild has also appointed Sasuka as our BBBEE partner, which is part of our broad-based strategy. We are addressing medium to large size organisations with a number of solutions based on WebFOCUS and iWay, the two Information Builders brands,” he says.
“WebFOCUS is the world’s leading business intelligence, business analytics and performance management platform, while iWay includes the data integration and data governance solutions.
“The official company launch will take place on 25 July 2012 at the Sandton Sun hotel, where keynote speakers from both New York and local will cover inter alia the value of data and how to maximise that value,” he concludes.
