Choose from Three Editions

Three editions of WebFOCUS are designed to deliver the many benefits of governed self-service apps and tools to your entire universe of business stakeholders, from management to analysts to operational employees to partners to customers. These completely integrated editions provide the best opportunity to better visualize insights, operationalize decision-making, and monetize your data investments. 

They are:

  • Business User Edition.  Self-service analytics for teams and workgroups of up to 100 non-technical business users and analysts.
  • Application Edition.  Sophisticated application authoring and deployment of highly customized self-service analytical applications and tools to a wide range of users.
  • Enterprise Edition. Sophisticated application authoring and deployment of strategic analytical applications to thousands or even millions of users, often customer-facing and outside of the corporate firewall.


Business User Edition

WebFOCUS Business User Edition is a self-service analytics solution for groups of business users and analysts.  It is not just a desktop tool but a multi-user server based product designed with a user interface oriented towards non-technical users.  It is completely browser based and incorporates many workgroup oriented capabilities and a rich array of analytics features that will simply not be found in a desktop self-service analytics tool.

This edition is designed for up to 100 non-technical business users and analysts who can autonomously access, consume, create, produce, and share analytical content. The Business User Edition includes the InfoAssist+ tool and supports self-service analytics, dashboard assembly, content automation, in-document analytics and data discovery. This edition empowers business users with the ability to generate new and impactful value out of their data, without the need to involve BI developers for their analytical needs.  Any content created by BUE users can also be leveraged in other WebFOCUS editions, for example a dashboard or specialist report created by an analyst can be operationalized and distributed to hundreds of line-of-business employees via Application Edition.
