Information Builders, the enterprise business intelligence (BI) standard of choice for organizations around the world, today announced the general availability of WebFOCUS 7, an offering that takes business intelligence to the operational level, harnessing the open architecture of the Internet to bring the power of BI to a much larger, more distributed scale of users. WebFOCUS 7 drastically reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO) associated with enterprise BI, while addressing the full range of data access and latency needs and embracing operational systems. Unlike other vendors' piecemeal offerings, which have resulted from hasty mergers and acquisitions, WebFOCUS 7 is the result of 30 years of internal research and development of both business intelligence and integration technologies, and it delivers truly seamless architecture integration to users.

There is an industry shift happening - business intelligence applications are moving into the hands of frontline workers with new and more immediate requirements. Businesses are demanding a solution that puts the data that is needed to make better business decisions in the hands of more users throughout the enterprise. WebFOCUS 7 has been developed to address this demand and help organizations extend business intelligence to encompass operational data and engage users from across and outside of the enterprise. WebFOCUS is already in production at some of the largest companies in the world, such as Ford, Hertz, Invesco and Allianz, with numerous deployments in the hundreds of thousands of users. To address the increasing demand for large-scale user deployments, WebFOCUS 7 has been architected to support literally millions of users and enterprise requirements, unlike other business intelligence tools that focus on supporting individual desktops.
