WebFOCUS Platform Now Brings Advanced Data Science Capabilities to Every User Without Requiring Specialized Skills


Orlando, FL


Information Builders (ibi), a leader in business intelligence (BI), analytics, and data management solutions, today from Gartner Data & Analytics Summit, announced it is showcasing the capabilities of its WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform that enable organizations to thrive through the pervasive use of trusted data and analytics at scale in every aspect of the entire business. At this industry conference with more than 3,000 attendees, the company will demonstrate and discuss how to scale the power of advanced analytics beyond the realm of highly-skilled data scientists for greater organizational insights and intelligence.


While most data science tools focus on enabling data scientists to create models, they are difficult for non-specialists to use, providing little value to them. ibi’s WebFOCUS turns R and python systems, models, and statistical functions into easy-to-leverage functions that can be used by any business user.

With WebFOCUS and the new Designer self-service authoring tool, individuals across the organization can have advanced analytical functions at their fingertips. Using the solution, business users can access python libraries from the business’s data scientists or the open-source community, then use the machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities they contain in infographics, visualizations, dashboards, or reports they create. Users can also easily cluster, classify, and correlate data with a single click.


As a result, AI, machine learning, and predictive solutions can be integrated, deployed and consumed by any number of users – making access to insights unlimited across the organization. ibi will demonstrate these capabilities at booth #621 during this week’s Gartner Data & Analytics Summit.
