Gartner BI Magic Quadrant: Information Builders Strenghts and Cautions Excerpts

A key challenge for Information Builders is to address its lack of a data discovery offering. 

The WebFocus server has the intelligence to deliver content to any device while taking on native gesturing and menu characteristics. 

The only non-product-specific limitations related to an inability to gain user buy-in to an enterprise approach. Nevertheless, almost two-thirds of respondents consider Information Builders to be the enterprise BI standard.
