Information Builders and IBM

Information Builders’ IBM complementary solutions allow customers to capitalize on all the data and applications running on any platform (z, Power, x, Netezza) to provide business analytics.

With WebFOCUS, actionable information is available to employees, management, customers, vendors, and partners via the web, geographic information systems (GIS), Excel, PDFs, or e-mail. All the key information can be integrated and reported on in the format you want, whenever, and however you need it. Because WebFOCUS runs natively on z/OS, MVS, System i5, NT, UNIX, and Linux the data you need for reporting – including from Netezza, Teradata, Oracle, JD Edwards, Query/400, DB2, DB2 Web Query, or SAP – is readily accessed and distributed. WebFOCUS integrates fully with SPSS providing business intelligence and predictive analytics for an entire enterprise.

Together, Information Builders and IBM provide faster, more secure, and extremely reliable ways to simplify your IT environment by reducing the number of servers needed and making vital information available and easy to access.

IBM's confidence in Information Builders' products is clearly evident in their selection of WebFOCUS as the foundation for DB2 Web Query for System i – the replacement for Query/400. With DB2 Web Query users can migrate existing Query/400 reports to the web with a few mouse clicks, and turn them into modern-looking reports with additional functionality. They can access any data and create HTML reports, charts, spreadsheets, and PDF documents. And, a simple web-based dashboard and toolset helps users manage their environments.
