Infogain, a leader in software development, IT consulting, integration, and customer knowledge solutions, today announced it has joined the Business Objects (NASDAQ: BOBJ) VAR Partner Program for solution providers. As a new channel partner, Infogain will significantly enhance its value proposition to its Global 2000 customers by offering Business Intelligence (BI) software solutions based on Business Objects.
In response to growing customer demand, Infogain has in 2005 increased its business solution relationships with BEA, TIBCO, Cisco, SAP, Chordiant, and now Business Objects.
In an effort to build upon its proven solutions approach to business intelligences services, Infogain has chosen to partner with a global leader in BI. Business Objects has established a powerful partner program that is committed to building and nurturing win-win relationships with channel partners and their end customers. Infogain will leverage this deep experience when crafting and delivering tailored BI solutions.
"When we mapped the Business Objects product line to our Business Intelligence solutions offerings, we saw an excellent fit," said Glenn Gramling, Infogain's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Our customers benefit from a comprehensive set of solutions to make the most of their business data, and with Business Objects products and Infogain's customizable frameworks, they have a platform that can deliver on that potential quickly, and at reasonable cost."
More and more companies are recognizing the need to incorporate BI functionality into their operations in order to analyze key business trends and solve critical issues. With the Global 2000, business intelligence (BI) is a virtual necessity in today's globally competitive markets. The Business Objects VAR Partner Program will boost Infogain's ability to meet this growing demand. Integrating reporting, analysis, and information delivery into existing Infogain customer information offerings will amplify Infogain's already strong reputation for delivering on the promise of aggregating customer and business data and turning it into actionable information.
Kurt Schlegel, an analyst at Gartner, has looked at trends in business intelligence. "Many people view business intelligence as a tools centric market for ad-hoc query, reporting and analysis; but within the next 3-5 years, BI will become more application centric, with vertically specific solutions built into the business process."
Infogain will capitalize on this trend, leveraging its Business Objects partnership to develop solutions targeting the manufacturing and financial services verticals.
"Our partnership with Business Objects firmly establishes our commitment to provide the very best business intelligence (BI) solutions, ultimately aimed at improving our customers' ability to make effective business decisions," said Kapil Nanda, Infogain's president and CEO. "This partnership greatly enhances our ability to lead our customers into the next phases of global business growth.
