Introducing WebFOCUS Business User Edition


This topic provides an overview of WebFOCUS Business User Edition.

WebFOCUS Business User Edition Components

With WebFOCUS Business User Edition, you can quickly and easily perform the following functions, all in a single web-based environment:

Business User Edition Portal

The Business User Edition Portal provides access to the Home page, the default landing page that opens when you first sign in. It serves as a centralized place for creating, organizing, accessing, or sharing content, performing administrative tasks, scheduling reports and procedures, and working with your data. You can develop new content or interact with content that has been created by other users, as well as create pages and InfoApps with WebFOCUS Designer.

Reporting and Analysis

Create ad hoc queries, develop reports, charts, documents, and other analytic views for personal usage or sharing and distribution in static or interactive formats. You can also create more advanced information assets, such as multi-page analytic documents and multi-source dashboards.

Data Discovery

Explore your data to find trends, patterns, and gain new insight, by creating visualizations. Running against a high-speed data sandbox and other data sources, you can create interactive visualizations that can be saved, shared, published, and delivered as PowerPoint presentations to help you build business cases through storytelling.

Scheduling and Distribution

ReportCaster provides scheduling and distribution capabilities for reports and procedures, as well as independent files and URLs. Reports and files are automatically distributed on a monthly, weekly, daily, or specific basis.
