Previous Solutions

We are retiring SAP Business Object Webi and Xcelsius, they will be replaced by IBI Web Focus.

Initial Setup

Security set up is a little complex, other than that is OK. We are implementing in the cloud.

Implementation Team

The implementation is being done together with the vendor and our BI team. This is the best approach to learn and to avoid big dependency on the vendor.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

They offer a very competitive CPU based license.

Other Advice

This is a great BI product and an excellent roadmap and vision.
