DM Review first featured Information Builders in 1996, in their 21st year of successful operation. In 2000, with their 25th anniversary approaching, DM Review conducted another interview to report on the company's new achievements. Now in their 30th year, we decided to drop in on Gerry Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders, to elicit his thoughts on the many successes from the first 30 years of history making and where the industry is headed in the next thirty. From his office overlooking Madison Square Garden, Cohen shared the company's latest achievements.

"In November, we announced that we closed another positive growth quarter. Quarter over quarter, we experienced a 10.7 percent increase in revenue and a 28.6 percent increase in new license revenue. We added 55 new name accounts during the quarter - the largest in our history. Organizations continue to recognize the value of business intelligence applications that deliver information to facilitate informed decision making, while simplifying the user experience. We have achieved success because our core expertise is in complex environments that have an inherent need for industrial-strength solutions, and the experience we have garnered in those ecosystems continues to benefit our customers as we enable them to focus and capitalize on operational activities that deliver direct results to their bottom line," says Cohen. "We've been in the sweet spot of this marketplace from the day we started and consistently delivered the business benefit to our customers."
