Official Breaking News: Partner Intelligence and Information Builders

It is official!

On Friday, the 2nd of July 2010, Information Builders announced their selection of Partner Intelligence as a Solution Partner, one of an elite group of trusted partners given the ability to resell the WebFOCUS Business Intelligence product.

Of course, since our first day in business in 2007, Partner Intelligence has been an Information Builders partner. But this change greatly expands our ability to serve our clients by offering solution bundles of both BI consulting services and software products.

We have always worked closely with Information Builders' Professional Services organization. In 2009, VP Bob Gabriel selected Partner Intelligence as his organization's preferred vendor for converting legacy reporting tools into the WebFOCUS product using our BI Consolidator application. Bob explained:

"We chose Partner Intelligence because of their success automating complex conversions of legacy technologies into WebFOCUS.  Partner Intelligence’s software application can reduce the time, cost, and risk of converting companies into WebFOCUS clients."

WebFOCUS clients like Richard Smith II at the State of Oklahoma's Department of Human Services confirm Bob's decision:

“When I engaged Partner Intelligence to do a major project to convert hundreds of production jobs from mainframe FOCUS to WebFOCUS in just six months, it seemed like an unattainable undertaking. Not only was I wrong, but this was one of the smoothest projects on which I have had the pleasure of working in years! If you need to convert code, then Partner Intelligence is the company you need to work with!”

With this agreement in place, Partner Intelligence can provide new customers with complete, cost-effective turnkey BI solutions.

If you have legacy tools such as FOCUS, NOMAD, RAMIS, Crystal Reports, QMF/SQL, Oracle Portal, or others, contact Partner Intelligence to discuss how to quickly and easily transform your current reporting environment into a high quality web-based BI solution. 

If you are looking for enterprise dashboard solutions, Partner Intelligence can quickly implement a bundled solution customized for your particular needs. 

Let us know how Partner Intelligence can be of service.
