2 Business Intelligence Roadmap

3 WebFOCUS Key Mission Expand the current reach of BI from under 20% to 100% and beyond How… Embracing the needs of each user constituency Executives, analysts, frontline workers, mobile workers Partners, customers, citizens Making it Easy to use Cost effective Scalable & portable The main reason why organizations have not exceeded the limitations of 20/20 is due primarily to the sole focus on the traditional users of BI – the power users and analysts. Most BI vendors continue to focus their products on this important but very limited community (that most oftentimes access a data warehouse). Many organizations try to extend the use of these products to their non-technical business users, such as field sales, operational employees, administrators, etc. – but are unsuccessful. So, the non-technical business users are limited to static information, which is not what they need. In fact, these mass business users require much more real-time information about their customers, products and processes. WebFOCUS can efficiently access all of your data and provide it dynamically to all of your users – whether those users are inside or outside your firewall. In fact, the most un-served community for BI are the people outside the firewall. Sadly, they are your most ‘high-value’ users – your business partners and your customers. When you serve them properly, you drive performance, efficiency and ROI. WebFOCUS addresses the security, scalability and licensing models to easily provide BI to your extended enterprise. We not only scale from a technology perspective, but from a licensing perspective as well (we don’t require a heavy per seat licensing structure). It is our philosophy that business people need information, not tools. With WebFOCUS, you can easily deploy intuitive BI applications that are easy to use and require no training. (If you can use eBay, you can use WebFOCUS). Chances are you are already using WebFOCUS and don’t even know it. (Ask them if they do business with US Bank, American Express, AT&T, Fidelity, Administaff, etc.).

4 WebFOCUS Industry Recognition
“Information Builders had the best forward progress in the leadership quadrant because of their commitment to leading innovation and their ability to listen and respond to their customers.” James Richardson, Analyst, Gartner BI Conference We are recognized as a leader by all of these independent, industry analysts. The quote from Gartner analyst, James Richardson, highlights the commitment to our core competencies of customer service and technology innovation. This slide is meant to help you build credibility. We’ve received industry recognition for our customer service and support, our product quality and its ease of use, and its overall adoption. We are on top with the Ventana…

5 WebFOCUS Core BI + Extended BI
Front office Mobile Applications Visualization & Mapping App/Dev, Portals & Mash-ups Enterprise Search Predictive Analytics Extended BI Performance Management MS Office & e-Publishing Query & Analysis Dashboards Reporting Information Delivery Core BI Data Warehouse & ETL Business to Business This slide introduces each of the categories. You want to emphasize on this slide that WebFOCUS is a platform that does much more than any other BI platform. Reaching into application types (e.g. predictive analytics, search, performance management, Mobile, data quality and more) that typically will require a company to make additional investments in software from other vendors which requires additional hardware, additional experience and additional training, etc. Many vendors offer you core BI capabilities, but WebFOCUS is unique in its innovation to offer extended BI from the same, integrated platform (you may want to again reiterate our organic growth message – that we provide our customers all of these capabilities not by buying companies, but by developing these capabilities in-house so they all work well together.) You can also reiterate that we not only focus on the pretty pictures, but take responsibility for what happens on the back end as well. WebFOCUS will cover all of your information systems needs from data inception (collection, quality, and movement) to information delivery (reporting, analysis, & distribution) from one common platform and architecture. Data Quality Business Activity Monitoring Master Data Management Extensions to the WebFOCUS platform allow you to build more application types at a lower cost Back office

10 InfoAssist

11 Business Intelligence Roadmap Key Drivers for New InfoAssist Capabilities
Customers’ development models vary widely Central IT model Development occurring in Business units Shadow IT working w/in Business units Traditional Power User and Developer roles are blurring in many organizations Strong demand for advanced Web-based development features Expanding IA’s features and functionality

12 Business Intelligence Roadmap New InfoAssist Capabilities Now Available (7.7.02)
InfoAssist: Advanced Development Tool End-user dashboards, sophisticated development capabilities, InfoMini (unique in the industry) Dashboards easily created via IA (no need for Developer Studio) InfoMini expands potential deployment of IA and balances “too many features for me” UI can be customized by “developer” for wide range of consumption by power users and information consumers Entire applications & gadgets built and automatically deployed

16 InfoAssist Plans for Release 8

17 Business Intelligence Roadmap InfoAssist: Additional Advanced Features
Cube Support In : IA provides reporting and analysis development against major cube data sources (SAP/BW, Essbase, MS Analysis Services) Metadata maps to cube structures allowing IA users to view and navigate cube hierarchies Compound documents and dashboards containing both cube and RDBMS sources can be created In 8.0: Extend cube support via new Browser mode for cube databases Allow users to perform analysis, save results, promote analysis into Dashboards, highly-styled reports, Active Technologies, mobile access Multi-step reports (HOLD file creation) Financial Reporting (inter-row calculations, account hierarchies, etc.) In the current WebFOCUS release (7.7.02), InfoAssist provides reporting and analysis development against the major cube data sources. WebFOCUS metadata maps to cube structures, allowing IA users to view and navigate hierarchies as they exist in the cubes. In addition, compound documents and dashboards containing both cube and RDBMS data sources can be created via IA’s Compose mode. The attached screenshots from the latest Roadmap presentation (pp ) describe the cube browsing mode planned for Release 8:   Accordion/explorer-style navigation and drill-down w/  multiple dimensions. Accordion/explorer-style navigation and drill-across dimensions Right-click context menus for filtering, calculations, etc. (similar to those found in Active Technologies) Browser mode results can be promoted via single click operation into formatted reports, dashboards, compound documents, any output format, chart, etc. We are building these browser capabilities not to match ProClarity (and other specialized tools like it) feature-for-feature nor to have IA be positioned in the market as the premier cube browsing solution. Rather, we are planning to provide enough functionality to establish even more credibility with cube integration and then to get a prospect or a customer to expand their vision of what can be done with our full product line. Central in this positioning, as always, is that we don’t recommend that large user populations be given a tool for do-it-yourself analysis against cubes that are expensive to create and maintain.  We would replace a product like ProClarity with a combination of a relatively small number of IA users (if appropriate) and a guided adhoc approach that would service most of a given user population.

For corporate performance management, not just financial. Business Value: Communicate strategy and improve performance. Drive results to higher standards and identify opportunities for improvement.

41 Everyone Makes Decisions
Business Intelligence Roadmap PMF = Operational Performance Management Operational Performance Management (OPM) is about translating the strategy into operational goals & initiatives Linking the initiative back to any metric in your organization Leading Indicators of performance – not a Rear View Mirror Based on customer facing and operational processes Addresses Any Key Enablers Human Capital Information Capital Organization Capital What we need is a whole new paradigm and we call this Operational Performance Management. We are ideally suited for this endeavor because of our 32 year history of delivering information systems that leverage disparate operational systems and turning into actionable information. What OPM does is it provides the necessary context for people to know what is expected and how to use the information. OPM provides tools and methods to translates strategy in to operational goals and initiatives Which enables you to focus on Leading (causal) indicators of performance The focus is where it needs to be on customer and operational processes Plus it addressed the key enablers to performance, innovation and sustainability Human, Information and Organization Capital Everyone Makes Decisions

42 Business Intelligence Roadmap PMF is the “How”
Communication Dashboards Robust alerting Collaboration Publishing Alignment Operational and strategic closed loops Visual cause/effect tools Aligned projects/initiatives Aligned Processes Feedback loops Cascaded scorecards Pooled metrics Analytics Guided ad hoc and OLAP Trending & predictive analytics Visual analytics and GIS Correlation tools Once the basic strategies and goals have been established tools are needed to motivate and empower everyone in the enterprise to execute on the organizational plans. First powerful tools for communicating performance information via easy to use (no training required) dashboards that include alerts, collaboration and robust publishing capabilities. The Dashboard should provide comprehensive analytical tools that enable users to drill anywhere, evaluate trends to gain real insight. To achieve alignment a rich framework is needed for creating strategies and maintaining metrics and dimensions to propagate strategies and goals throughout the organization. With superior Communication, Analytics and Alignment the foundation for continuous performance improvement is in place.

43 Business Intelligence Roadmap PMF – Strategy Map
Map out your path to success Understand the risks you face that may inhibit you Transform goals into measurable objectives Communicate to everyone Everyone is accountable Strategy Risks What risks may effect the outcome? Where are we going?

44 Win, Place or No-show? The 4 Critical Elements to Smarter Decisions
Need screenshots for PMF (black ones) So why are we (and our customers) successful? End user adoption is one key measure of success. We have the widest known deployments and WebFOCUS is used by information workers at every level of an enterprise. Ease of use drives adoption and adoption drives return on your investment. The more people that use it, the higher your return. We have proven scalability - some applications reaching into millions of named users. (Pershing mentioned here is a portal used by 100,000 investment professionals. Patrick Yip of Pershing said “One of the main reasons our BI environment [WebFOCUS] has been adopted so widely is because it does not require any special experience or sophistication…” With our breadth of data access we can create more systems than other vendors including those that reach into real-time operational systems – those applications that reach frontline workers at the bottom of the org chart and partners and customers outside your organization. With all of this our customers experience high yield with low costs in: Software – flexible pricing including server based options that do not go up for each named user Hardware –because our software scales you need less hardware to service more users Training – very few WebFOCUS applications require training at all Development – since you can do so many things with WebFOCUS your developer needs to know less tools but can create more applications Support – Without (“how-to”) questions overloading you internal support lines you don’t require as many support personnel
