WebFOCUS Software


 

Information Builders’ WebFOCUS is a business intelligence and analytics platform targeted toward both business and technical users. It consists of multiple self-service applications based on each user's job and skill-level (e.g. technical users, business users and data scientists), from advanced data integration and analytical tools to point-and-click applications. Popular applications include InfoDiscovery (an analytical tool), RStat (a predictive modeling tool) and ReportCaster (a reporting tool).

This platform allows business users to manage their own analytic content and assemble dashboards, while technical users can build custom "InfoApps" that provide an app store-like user experience. This system also allows for integration with commonly used programs, such as Microsoft Excel and Adobe Reader.

WebFOCUS is available for on-premise or Web-based deployment. Pricing is flexible, and options include (but are not limited to) one-time purchases, subscription licensing, application-specific licensing, cloud-based computing, lease-buyouts and specialized licensing options.

Information Builders was a little slow to innovate into the 21st century until recently. The past version of WebFOCUS felt like it was still in the early 2000's, but with the release of WebFOCUS 8 they are relevant and innovating the in analytics space.

Recommendations

When choosing a BI vendor and software make sure to choose a vendor who will understand your company and culture. After that you can evaluate the functionalities of the software, but the reality is that all software has strengths and weaknesses and it is crucial that your corporate culture and the relationship with the vendor are in lock step to deliver success. The greatest software in the world won't consistently deliver effectively if other pieces are disjointed and there isn't common communication.
