Information Builders, provider of Web business intelligence for real-time information delivery, and Cognizant Technology Solutions Corp., a provider of custom software development, integration and application outsourcing services, announced a strategic alliance focused on quickly transporting customers from legacy reporting environments to the Web. The companies' collaboration will provide a single Web-based reporting tool that offers access to data across all environments and applications through the use of a Web-browser.

The Information Builders/Cognizant joint e-Transformation solution benefits customers with legacy reporting tools or database environments such as Easytrieve, SAS, NOMAD, Ramis, Mark IV, Model204, COBOL, PL/1, Ideal, IMS, IDMS, DATACOMM, and others. Advantages of the "legacy evolution" to e- Transformation include lower cost of ownership (Web-based vs. client/server), improved reporting capabilities and universal access to data. Cognizant's Extempore methodology is a proven vehicle for migrating customers from legacy reporting environments to the Web, while Information Builders' lead business intelligence platform WebFOCUS, is the target environment. The joint solution provides all services and tools necessary to convert to a Web-based environment while supporting all preferred information delivery formats including email, Excel, PDF, and Web pages.
