SOURCE: Information Builders

New York, NY, November 6, 2017 – Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, today announced the launch of WebFOCUS 8.202, the latest version of its award-winning BI and analytics platform. Drawing on extensive behavioral and user experience design research, the new release provides an enhanced user interface and key workflow improvements that reduce the amount of time and skill needed to derive data-backed insights.

WebFOCUS is a comprehensive platform that provides data management, visual discovery, predictive analytics, operational intelligence, and other essential capabilities for turning raw data into actionable insights. The new enhancements extend these benefits a step further, enabling both BI specialists and non-technical roles to create and consume analytical content in a matter of minutes. As a result, users of varying degrees of technical savvy can develop and act on dashboards, infographics, and InfoApps™ ­– Information Builders’ highly interactive, customizable analytical applications – without relying upon IT. In addition, the platform now features an intuitive homepage designed to jump-start the exploration of key data assets.

The major enhancements of WebFOCUS 8.202 include:

- Improved User Interface – The WebFOCUS homepage and end-user interface have been completely redesigned into thumbnail-based visual menus. This provides an immersive user experience and a unified launch point for portals, apps, tools, and other analytical assets

- New Designer Tool – Users can rapidly create a variety of analytical pages via fully responsive web page templates, which provide a framework for dropping content into visual containers, such as reports, charts, maps, or controls. These pages can be used standalone, in a portal, or embedded in a third-party application. These and other features of WebFOCUS Designer make analytics authoring simple, intuitive, and fast for BI analysts and non-technical groups alike

- New Visual Discovery Insight Mode – WebFOCUS Insight enables instant visual discovery from a standalone chart, facilitating the fast and easy exploration of data without the need to learn a complex tool

With these and other WebFOCUS 8.202 capabilities, Information Builders is simplifying embedded BI and customer-facing analytics and making it even easier for companies to deliver these insights.

Gerald Cohen, president and CEO, Information Builders, said:

“WebFOCUS has consistently been recognized for its accessibility and versatility, and with these latest enhancements, we’re further equipping customers with even greater usability and flexibility. Our reengineered user interface reduces the amount of time and skill needed to consume and create analytical content, and offers an intuitive launch point for users to explore and interact with data. We believe that empowering the business this way while simultaneously reducing the dependency on IT will lead to smarter, more agile data-driven business for our customers.”
