Information Delivery

Information delivery solutions are designed to meet growing demands for “anytime, anywhere” access to enterprise data by making it easier to share more information with more people – executives, managers, employees, customers, and business partners.

This improved information availability allows organizations to be proactive, rather than reactive, when opportunities and problems arise. By ensuring that the right people get the right information at the right time, information delivery improves decision making, increases efficiency, enhances communication and collaboration, and boosts business performance.

The WebFOCUS platform gets real-time information to users, when and how they want it. Interactive information can be delivered to dashboards and portals, or dynamically sent on a scheduled or event-driven basis, in a variety of formats—HTML, PDF, Excel, Word, etc.—to any PC, laptop, smartphone, or tablet.

WebFOCUS ReportCaster ensures secure, automatic dissemination of critical information to the right person in the right context. A cutting-edge report delivery engine and state-of-the-art business event monitoring provides companies with a single point of control for real-time alerts, as well as a mechanism for fully automating, scheduling, storing, and instantly distributing information—WebFOCUS reports and dashboards or third-party content—to anyone within or outside the organization.

WebFOCUS ReportCaster’s industry-leading characteristics and features make it the benchmark for information delivery:

Scalability

Whether distributing month-end financials to key business executives, or collating and distributing hundreds of thousands of brokerage statements, utility bills, or wireless phone invoices, WebFOCUS ReportCaster is up to the task.

Bursting

WebFOCUS ReportCaster can automatically burst a single report into sections, each to be sent to a different recipient,perfect for quickly and efficiently distributing HR information such as 401k status, vacation, and payroll information.

Flexibility

Reports and dashboards can be distributed in any format, including HTML, Excel, PDF, PowerPoint, Flex, and Active Technology reports, our "thin" interactive format. Information can be distributed as attachments or as an embedded link to a central location to reduce network traffic.

Security

Distributed information can be encrypted, compressed, and password-protected to ensure rapid, efficient, and secure delivery.

Ease of Development

Scheduling and subscription can be included as a key component of any WebFOCUS application using Developer Studio, InfoAssist, or the WebFOCUS ReportCaster API.
