Information Builders delivers WebFOCUS business intelligence software on Sun Fire x64 servers powered by AMD Opteron processors

NEW YORK, NY, July 21, 2006--Information Builders, the enterprise business intelligence (BI) standard of choice for organizations around the world, today announced support and certification of WebFOCUS on Sun Fire(TM) x64 (x86, 64-bit) servers powered by AMD Opteron(TM) processors. As organizations continue to extend operational business intelligence into the hands of millions of users, the ability to run on a multitude of platforms is important. By delivering operational business intelligence capabilities on Sun Fire x64 servers, Information Builders' WebFOCUS ensures organizations are delivering a wide array of data and applications to users throughout an organization's extended enterprise.

"The Solaris 10 OS on Sun's x64 systems - the fastest, most scalable and energy-efficient available - will supercharge Information Builders' WebFOCUS to offer customers unbeatable, enterprise-class business intelligence at low cost," said Rick Moss, director of partner marketing for Sun Microsystems.

WebFOCUS unites enterprise search, BI reporting, and integration technologies from iWay Software to tap into any database or application to provide information in the format users want, whenever they want. Sun's x64 servers and workstations powered by AMD Opteron processors deliver 64-bit and 32-bit binary compatibility, platform choice, and industry-leading price/performance.

"To achieve the full potential of enterprise business intelligence, your entire extended enterprise - in all its complexity - needs consistent information about itself, tailored for latency, process, and audience," said Gerald Cohen, CEO of Information Builders. "Information Builders powered by Sun Fire x64 servers makes that happen, with the right architecture, the right level of integration, and interactive simplicity. WebFOCUS does much more than graft a browser front-end onto your reporting applications. It helps optimize your business by extending throughout and beyond the enterprise - to front-line employees, customers, suppliers, business partners, and more."
