Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

I would less recommend it because it looks like IBI is receding a bit from the European market. I would not be certain for future support. Knowledge in the market in western Europe is limited

Functional wise the application suits almost all situations. I would for sure recommend it purely based on its capabilities

WebFOCUS is a good comprehensive tool for BI for companies. I feel that scenarios where you want the user to interact and be able to ingest data in different formats would be a good use of the tool. Performing data discovery is easier with InfoAssist, especially the most recent versions, and allows users to customize their views and provide comments.

Webfocus is great for any company who wants to maintain a strong history of analytics. The reports update frequently so it is a great tool for any e-commerce business to have. I'm not sure how well it will work for any forms of business but Webfocus is currently one of our most used forms of software.

It is well suited for just about everything that I have seen or run into. There are some cases with data from sources like Essbase (Hyperion) and other sources where you may need an adapter, but IBI has adapters available for just about everything you can think of. I also love the ability to run either straight WebFocus code or SQL code.

WebFOCUS is great for creating customized reports across multiple datasets and has served our institution well to report timely and actionable data for various constituents internally and externally. The need for expertise in WebFOCUS and the internal datasets supplied for analysis can be cumbersome for one particular area of responsibility, which is why embedded departmental analysts are probably the best resource.

I would recommend WebFOCUS to colleagues if asked. I think this is a very impressive tool that we use to process information in a very efficient way. Our reports load fast and the information is very accurate. I also think that WF could be used in any kind of scenarios. I am planning to attend the WF summit this year and I've seen so many companies that are sharing what they've done with this and basically can be used anywhere.

We have very good experience with WebFOCUS being able to distribute massive reports through emails or web. It's really helpful to quickly present data in a very innovative way. Unfortunately programming wise is hard to edit and you could potentially affect the report in a way that is hard to make it fit on every drill down that your report may have.

Information Builders has built a broad and deep platform for data access, reporting, and analytics over the past 40 years. Given this, they have a suite of offerings that will fill needs of small companies to the largest. If a company is looking for a tool for a data scientist type of position their InfoDiscovery or RStat tools will fill the need, but where I feel they shine is at a mid-sized enterprise model where the platform is leveraged by everyone... at the appropriate accessibility levels. Companies should have governance over who does and sees what. I strongly recommend that only 5% of the individuals in the business should have "designer" access, and those individuals must be mentored and connected to all of the others in the company. No silos.

I always recommend users to use an expert at least at the initial stage of setting up the environment. If your initial setup is not done correctly then you won't get the value out of this product. You need to have an expert who can provide you the output you want.

We always make sure the client is getting what they want from this product. This product can offer more and you need to know how to utilize it. Otherwise you will feel this is just ananother product in the market.

The cost and configuration make WebFOCUS more appropriate for organizations where there are multiple developers/users. This software is particularly good in cases where you have multiple data sources in varying types of databases where you need to be able to reach them (and even combine data) using one tool. This tool is able to format results to a higher degree than the average query tool.

If you are looking at getting WebFocus, either pay to have a data mart(data wharehouse) built for you by information builders or connect to existing databases and report that way. A home grown data mart is VERY difficult and time consuming to manage and report from.

Being a reporting tool it will find place in most of the organizations as reports are generated everywhere. All banking, finance, IT, telecom, internet, services, government organizations etc, every department requires reports on a daily basis. I think that they should expand their business in the market as i am sure many organizations do not know this product. Also I believe this product will find a great scope in market if advertized properly. More people if they use it, more people can give more inputs which will help them to improve the product.
