Information Builders

Information Builders is expanding its powerful self-service BI and analytics platform, WebFOCUS to three editions to provide more specialised analytics tools to meet the diverse decision-making needs of a wide range of business and enterprise users.

The New York-based firm with offices in 60 countries worldwide creates leading software solutions for BI and analytics, data integration and data integrity, helping organisations transform data into strategic business value. The new editions allow the company to help both technical and non-technical users.

The Business User Edition is designed for up to 100 non-technical business users and analysts to access, create, produce and share analytical content without the need for BI developers. Licensing is based on seat pricing.

The Application Edition is designed to author and deploy customised self-service analytical applications to a wide range of non-technical users. These InfoApps can be deployed on-premise, in the cloud, on mobile devices or as software- as-a-service (SaaS). This edition includes the sophisticated authoring environment of the App Studio. Licensing is based on seat pricing.

The Enterprise Edition is designed for large organisations to deploy embedded, complex and strategic analytical applications to thousands or even millions of users, with licensing based on server pricing for cost-effective deployment to large user populations such as patients, students and consumers.
