Information Builders Unveils New WebFOCUS Platform for Unlimited Intelligence

BI and Analytics Solution Combines Ease of Use and Seamless Scalability

Information Builders,†a leader in†business intelligence (BI), analytics and data management†solutions,†has announced†the launch of the new†WebFOCUS†BI and analytics platform, combining ease of use†with†the solution’s†proven scalability. The†new†WebFOCUS†boasts an elegant, fully responsive user interface and intuitive workflow to automate and simplify complex tasks. Unlike limited tools that can’t scale effectively, the new WebFOCUS platform empowers everyone connected to an organization with information and insights for†unlimited intelligence. This includes stakeholders outside the firewall crucial to success ≠≠– customers, consumers, citizens, partners, and suppliers.†

All too often,†organizations implement†BI and†analytics solutions†that only address the†needs of limited†departments or end users.†As analytics grows in importance, companies†require a solution that†seamlessly†scales with business†growth, while also providing an intuitive experience that enables everyone†to tap into the power of data†in decision-making.†

Information Builders’†WebFOCUS†helps organizations turn raw data and business insights into†informed†action with several new features designed to improve flexibility and scalability, promote collaboration and communication, and boost analytical power.†

Seamless Scalability†††

With†WebFOCUS, organizations can achieve scalability of users, as well as data sources and performance at a much lower hardware and software cost compared to other BI tools and platforms. For example, First Rate, a provider of portfolio analysis and performance measurement software, processes more than 2.5 million portfolios per hour each evening after markets close with†WebFOCUS. The business can easily add servers to their existing architecture to meet the needs of their escalating load without reconfiguring their BI and analytics solution. Powered by Amazon Web Services, Information Builders Total Access Cloud also supports even greater flexibility and scalability to handle growth and unanticipated demand.

Combining Governed BI With User Empowerment and Collaboration†

The New WebFOCUS combines traditional governed BI with business-led agile analytics. The modern enterprise can deliver a broad range of reports, dashboards, documents, and applications while empowering business users to create their own data visualizations, charts, graphs, and infographics – all in one place, securely, at scale, and in the cloud or on-premise.

Users can enjoy an easy and immersive experience with the WebFOCUS Designer to create and manage all analytical assets.†Easy-to-use applications, dashboards, and infographics can be created with fully responsive templates in minutes before being embedded into portals or third-party applications†or deployed standalone.†

The†WebFOCUS†BI Portal supports the curated†delivery and†consumption of analytics content†that matches specific user needs†across the organization.†Administrators can easily manage deployments, access, and presentation of governed BI content for users inside and outside the firewall, which end users can then personalize and customize, or even select to add content created by peers.††††

Unmatched Analytical Power†††

The new†WebFOCUS†enables businesses to extract the most value from their data with several enhancements to the†platform’s broad range of capabilities. These include:†

  • A comprehensive suite of†data science functions†integrated with WebFOCUS and built on Information Builders’ data access and data cleansing tools. In addition to the RStat predictive solution for BI, data modeling, and scoring, WebFOCUS now offers integration with†R and Python network systems, models, and statistical functions.†AI, machine learning and predictive solutions can be integrated, deployed and consumed by hundreds, even thousands of users
  • Introduction of WebFOCUS†Intelligent Objects, which enable users to collaboratively leverage each other’s related analytics. The secret sauce is a new dynamic metadata layer that is automatically generated as analytics are created. A user can see and access similar and related preexisting views, enabling everyone to build on each other’s work, increasing the pace of innovation across the organization and reducing redundancy
  • A multitude of new capabilities related to†data management, including a new data prep wizard, data write-back functions, big data adapters for Amazon Redshift, Google†BigQuery, and MariaDB, and a new tool for what-if analysis and sensitivity modeling.

Gene Peters, president and chief executive officer of Rosnet, said:†††

“Information Builders has been a true partner to Rosnet and consistently works to provide our†company†with the data solutions we need to push our business forward. The scalability of Information Builders’ solutions has been critical to match the demands of our growing business and keep†costs down. We have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from our end users – from business analysts†to our customers – and are excited to continue rolling out the new†WebFOCUS.”†

Frank J. Vella,chief operations officer, Information Builders, said:†††

“At Information Builders, we believe that when access to data isn’t limited, opportunities become unlimited. For far too long, businesses have been constrained by solutions that don’t provide the scalability and usability required to unleash the power of their information and empower employees at every level†to make smarter, better, and faster decisions. We are proud to unveil the new†WebFOCUS†platform†to unleash unlimited intelligence across†every†organization.”†
