We translate the data in descriptive as well as prescriptive reports and dashboards, mainly focusing on marketing, procurement and r&d. We also use it to get insight in data quality and improve there

We use Information Builders to perform a couple of functions. In one project different resources across different business units view reports and dashboards to assist in project management. Senior leaders also use the reporting to make key decisions and monitor the status of projects.

In the other solution we use WebFOCUS to provide client based reporting of data to show errors and a visible way to obtain client approval prior to implementing.

Webfocus is being used by several departments including inventory, merchandise planning, analytics, and marketing. We can view several reports about our catalog revenue and each item's conversion rate. The tool has helped us with maintaining records on what we put into every catalog as well as an updated sales report on catalogs that have been sent out.

WebFocus is used across the organization. It is used for Sales dashboards and to give various departments reports (ReportCaster) and graphically displayed real time data. It is very convenient in how it can connect to any data and reports can be generated very quickly and are easy to debug. HTML pages make it easier for users to select parameters and run queries faster.

WebFOCUS is currently in use across the whole organization from field users to upper management. We are using this technology to keep track of some metrics and to display them in reports. The information that we use come from different sources and we are working to crunch it and make it available in our WebFOCUS servers so our reports can display properly in a fast way.

Webfocus is used across the whole company. For example in the stores the managers are able to see reports on a daily basis. At the SSC we develop reports for all levels of the company hierarchy. With the reports we provide via webFocus, the vice presidents of the company will make important decisions for the company.

It's being used across different areas of the organization. Primarily we use it as a massive reporting tool for our business, helping our more than 5,000 stores to keep track of the multiple KPIs. Nevertheless it's also used as data management system for big data systems such as Hadoop, ODS, Greenplum, etc. Providing ad-hoc analysis of data is a big part of what WebFOCUS is being used for as well, helping us provide our analysts/executive team with meaningful data to determine business and operational decisions.

We use Information Builders WebFOCUS to not just create dashboards and executive reporting, but to enable key business individuals to build and manage information solutions supporting their departmental organizations as well as across the enterprise. By surfacing appropriately staged data with governance and oversight through a tool like the WebFOCUS BI Portal the business is able to rise above the tail chasing that normally happens when attempting to generate reports and insights leveraging the business and an IT report writer.

WebFOCUS is used across the organization as a user development tool. Its purpose is to allow departments an easy way to design, create, schedule, and distribute reports and data stored in various types of tables. It is a tool that users are able to install themselves with an instruction sheet and pretty quickly be able to connect to and report from various data sources with a minimal amount of training for the amount of ability of the tool.

IBI WebFOCUS was used for generating reports, dashboard. It's Report Caster was used to generate scheduled reports tied to the releases as well for independent time triggered reports. WebFOCUS was used to generate Custom reports for displaying the reports in HTML,Excel or PDF format. The backend was Oracle wherein the code to fetch the data was at the backend. In Webfocus there was a call to these Oracle packages/procedures to get the data from backend to display it on the reports. WebFocus was used only in my project and other departments as well. Being a reporting tool itself webfocus addresses the issues of generating/handling reports, generating dashboards very efficiently. It allows business users to perform predictive analytics with the new version 8, it allows you to generate scheduled reports by writing code in WebFOCUS fex files.

We're establishing a formalized, standardized BI environment for Healthcare Decision Support, aka Healthcare Economics. Currently we have a portal prepared to offer reports, charts, dashboards for Clinical, Operational, Financial, Administrative business domains.

Over time, we hope to use this product across the entire Nevada organization. Up to now, reporting has been developed by a number of disparate groups without a single source of truth. Now building a data warehouse, performing ETL and standardizing reporting requirements.

We want to empower analysts, supervisors and managers, medical staff and executives to answer their own questions. We are doing this by using WebFOCUS InfoAssist for advanced users to develop their own reporting tools. Developers use Report Painter to generate dashboards, infographics, etc.

WebFOCUS was selected as the standard BI/Reporting tool for the BCHousing. It provides rich data interfaces for many legacy systems such as those mainframe systems. Reports can be built for legacy systems without creating an ETL and a separate ODS.
