Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a Cofounder & Technical Advisor here at the BeyeNETWORK. Having covered the business intelligence and data warehousing industry for more than 15 years, I'm looking forward to a more interactive form of communication with all of you. Please share your comments and thoughts!

Kevin Quinn, VP Product Marketing for WebFocus presented some solid examples of how WebFocus serves their clients. And then did a fast demo and built a report with WebFocus in just a couple minutes. The best part about the demo is that while report building is easy, WebFocus has a feature that lets you turn your report into an active report so that it can be shared in countless ways through portals, emails etc. The simplicity and scalability is a a real feature here for giving large user bases access to business intelligence. Other cool things include integration with open source to speed up new features in WebFocus and mobile support for reporting.

Director of iWay Product Marketing Vincent Lam followed next with an iWay Software overview. iWay is the integration product offered by Information Builders and is operated as a separate brand and company within IBI. The solution services integration needs in seven different ways.

1. Data Warehouse
2. Real-time DW
3. Operational data access
4. Federated query
5. SOA
6. Process-driven BI
7. Enterprise Search

I've always thought of Information Builders as a well kept secret. They have several great products, large customer base and solid technology they don't have the high profile that some of their competitors have. They should be on your list when looking at integration and business intelligence solutions.
