Avnet Gets Serious About Analytics

Big data

Information Builders has partnered with Avnet’s Technology Solutions business unit, through the Analytics Accelerator programme. This partnership provides Avnet with access to resell the entire WebFOCUS BI and analytics portfolio and allows its partners to take advantage of the largest margin available for WebFOCUS sales to customers.

The Information Builders portfolio provides customisable, self-service analytics capabilities designed to operationalise insights throughout the organisation. Information Builders’ WebFOCUS platform has earned top positioning in numerous analyst reports for its unrivaled breadth and ability to deliver value, most recently with Ventana Research rating the company first overall in its 2016 Value Index for Mobile Analytics and Business Intelligence.

The Analytics Accelerator programme provides Avnet’s partners with access to this robust technology at an attractive price point, enabling them to give their customers a competitive advantage while simultaneously driving revenue.

IDC has predicted that the big data and business analytics market is set to increase to £128 billion by 2019. Information Builders’ new partner programme provides a strategic avenue for organisations to tap into this growing market.

Gerald Cohen, President and CEO, Information Builders, said, “The addition of Avnet to Information Builders’ Analytics Accelerator programme extends our solutions to a new partner base, ensuring an array of new customers have a powerful framework for making the most of their information investments. All companies, regardless of size, should have the ability to analyse their existing data and make more informed decisions as a result. Our Analytics Accelerator programme enables the customers of Avnet’s global resellers to do exactly that, allowing these partners to improve processes and deliver greater business value.”

Craig Smith, Director IoT & Analytics, Avnet Technology Solutions, EMEA, said: “Adding Information Builders to our data analytics and IoT portfolio will help us create new and compelling solutions for our partners to leverage data to deliver better value for their customers.”
