PLATFORMS: WebFOCUS operates as part of a multitiered, Internet data warehouse application. It is based on a Sun Microsystems SPARC Server 1000, interoperating with Information Builders' EDA SQL Copy Manager and FOCUS Six reporting environment server.

BACKGROUND: Paradyne is a pioneer and leader in digital access products and technologies that facilitate high-speed access to networks worldwide for communications, computing and information. To claim market share, Paradyne must provide high quality service to our distribution network. We have recently implemented a Web-enabled data warehouse that allows distributors to obtain order status information by pointing their browser to Paradyne's Web site. The data warehouse required a tool that could seamlessly generate HTML-format reports using data coming from a variety of sources, including internal shipping, manufacturing and order management systems, which in turn fed a Sybase 11-based data warehouse. That tool had to work in concert with data access middleware and a report server.
