Information Builders WebFOCUS Review

Gartner's Magic Quadrant report states that many users have not implemented the latest software


Gartners February 2013 Magic Quadrant report says that "almost 2/3rd's of respondents consider Information Builders to be the enterprise BI standard." On the other hand, a large percentage of users are not using the latest software version.

Do you use WebFOCUS? Why do you think that many users have not implemented the latest version of software?

Yes, I use WebFOCUS, and it has three pros that I like most: First one is that it provides real-time, native access to more than 85 data sources over 35 different platforms, and most of the real-time access is read/write. Second one is that the user may append sticky notes to any of the reports defined in Managed Reporting. Sticky notes contain archived information, such as detailed discussions about an item in a report. Third one is that WebFOCUS can consume web services information and incorporate it as a data source.
