BI and analytics solution combines ease of use and seamless scalability

Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI), analytics and data management solutions, today 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 who are 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, using WebFOCUS, First Rate, a provider of portfolio analysis and performance measurement software, processes more than 2.5 million portfolios per hour after markets close each evening. The business can easily add servers to its existing architecture to meet the needs of its escalating load, without reconfiguring its BI and analytics solution. Powered by Amazon Web Services, Information Builders Total Access Cloud 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 in minutes using fully responsive templates, 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 thousands of users
  • Introduction of WebFOCUS Intelligent Objects, which enable users to collaboratively leverage each other’s related analytics. A new dynamic metadata layer is automatically generated as analytics are created. A user can see and access similar and related pre-existing 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.”
