NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 29, 2010) -  Information Builders, the independent leader in operational business intelligence (BI) systems, today announced it has been named a winner of Midsize Enterprise Summit West's Innovation Awards. The awards are a proven springboard to increased brand awareness and product credibility in the midmarket. Chosen by the chief information officers and senior IT executives at the Summit, Information Builders' WebFOCUS, was named Best Midmarket Software Solution, beating out IBM Cognos, MicroStrategy, Qlikview, Microsoft, and Birst in its category.

The Midsize Enterprise Innovation Awards are the only awards in the channel voted on solely by the attending IT decision-makers who directly influence their customers' technology-buying decisions. After three days of boardroom presentations and one-on-one meetings, the decision-makers vote on the products and services presented at the show.

"We're thrilled to be recognized for our innovation within the midmarket sector," said Michael Corcoran, vice president and chief marketing officer Information Builders. "Our self-service BI solutions are tailored to make small-to-midsized businesses experience the same benefits as enterprises. With thousands of midsize companies around the world actively maintaining licenses, Information Builders is continuing to grow its presence in the midmarket and build solutions to help SMBs make smarter decisions."

The awards were presented at the Summit held September 19-22 at the JW Marriott Resort & Spa in San Antonio, TX. The Midsize Enterprise Summit brought senior IT executives from midsize businesses together with industry analysts and leading and emerging vendors. The event embraced midmarket-specific issues, trends and solutions from a horizontal and vertical industry-specific perspective. The business intensive format includes analyst-led sessions, vendor-led World Premiers, private boardroom appointments, a Solution Showcase of exhibitors, as well as networking functions.
