NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jan 24, 2012) - -- West 2012 Show Floor -- Information Builders, an independent leader in business intelligence (BI) solutions, in conjunction with West 2012, an event co-sponsored by AFCEA International and the U.S. Naval Institute, today announced that naval organizations are increasingly relying on BI to do more with less.

As military organizations seek to complete their missions successfully despite shrinking budgets, they must reinvent the way they operate to maintain peak levels of productivity and cost-efficiency. BI and enterprise integration solutions from Information Builders have empowered customers across the Navy by streamlining data access and delivery and bridging the gap between enterprise software and military needs.

"Naval organizations have many of the same data storage and reporting challenges as the private sector," said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. "The right business intelligence solution provides invaluable insight, enabling these organizations to better manage resources, such as human capital and budget, so they can succeed despite shrinking assets."

One longstanding Navy customer was facing a number of challenges, including data stored in diverse locations and the use of different technology platforms and operating systems. The organization needed access to data in real time to deliver it to distinct portals, individuals, and applications. WebFOCUS, Information Builders' comprehensive BI platform and performance management tool, enabled the customer to access quality data in real time to respond to changing demands as they occurred.

Drawing on the robust reporting and integration capabilities of such technologies as WebFOCUS, naval organizations can:

  • Increase visibility across the entire organization
  • Improve performance and productivity
  • Enhance budget management and cost control
  • Eliminate fraud, abuse, and waste
  • Better manage important programs and initiatives
  • Share critical information with other entities
  • Adhere to regulatory reporting guidelines
