Webfocus upgrade offers more scalability

Information Builders announced version 5.0 of its Webfocus product, an application development and reporting tool designed specifically for web-based environments.

Thecompany claimed latest version is more scalable, includes an enhanced, intuitive interface to support a wider breadth of users and integrates better with third-party applications.

It also includes an autonomic server that is, according to the company, self-healing.

Information Builders president and chief executive officer Gerald Cohen said this self-aware, self-healing and self-optimising "brain" automatically configures the server or server clusters running Webfocus, so it can resolve glitches and prevent bottlenecks from occurring.

Other enhancements include streamlined information distribution, enabling the ability to deliver Webfocus and third-party reports - such as image files and Microsoft Word documents - to users on a scheduled or alert basis. This enhancement also allows for easier information storage and retrieval.

Webfocus supports 85 databases across 35 platforms.
