We will be using the conversion process soon. I hope this will be an easy process converting from 7.6 to 8.02.

More charts, because I like to see more graphs and get more understanding of data by seeing it as a graph.

The interface can be more user-friendly, learning the product via a classroom format. App studio needs to copy report without issue renaming.

The service levels are remarkable. The products are great as well. Information Builders should create a way to create predictive models without having to be a statistician.

If IBI can make each release of WebFOCUS consistent, we don't have to make changes for each release, it will be very helpful.

We found some minor flaws like password encryption. The Information Builders tech support provided us workarounds.

IIt would be nice to have it easier to embed native sql. Release process in our set up is not the safest since it requires changing paths.

More access via end users without using reporting objects. Easy way to create charts and graphs for reporting to executive staff.
