Data Integrity

A comprehensive data quality management solution ensures dashboard quality while integrating external and internal information assets from more than 300 data sources.

■ ■ Master data management creates a “golden record” that provides a set of validated, universally recognized values – derived from disparate sources housing similar information – that have been reconciled and stored in a centralized hub for use as a primary frame of reference by all users, systems, and dashboards

■ ■ WebFOCUS includes real-time extract, transform, and load (ETL) enhancements as well as full integration with real-time data adapters and iWay Data Quality Center to ensure the timeliness of dashboard content

Partners can use dashboards, data visualizations, and alerts to manage performance (Figure B).

WebFOCUS dashboards take advantage of visual perception, design techniques, and data visualizations like Stephen Few’s bullet graphs and Edward Tufte’s sparklines (Figure C).

Strategic and Performance Management Dashboards

Time is money for today’s busy executives, who require the ability to make at-a-glance observations of key activities that relate directly to critical corporate strategies. WebFOCUS strategic dashboards eliminate the hours spent sifting through mountains of information to uncover what’s important. High-impact data visualizations and design techniques, such as icons, glyphs, Stephen Few’s bullet graphs, and Edward Tuft’s sparklines, clearly convey issues requiring immediate attention. So, senior management can instantly determine where to focus and how to act.

WebFOCUS offers maximum flexibility when it comes to information delivery. Dashboards can be deployed in any format – including inline HTML, Adobe PDF, Flash, and Excel – and can be accessed on any device – from desktops to laptops to smartphones. They can also be distributed dynamically via e-mail, to printers, Web portals, or report archives – at schedule-driven intervals or when critical business events occur.

Dashboards in PMF allow organizations to define, share, and monitor crucial metrics and performance indicators across all levels of the business. Fully customizable according to user roles, PMF dashboards enable executives to obtain a high-level view of broad-reaching strategies, while line-of-business managers can track the day-to-day tactical activities that link to those strategies. This allows everyone to actively participate in corporate performance monitoring, ensuring that all projects or initiatives are fully aligned and that all goals are being reached.

Executive briefing booklets contain fully formatted text, logos, and images as well as live strategic dashboards and reports with embedded analytics (Figure I).

Portable Dashboards

WebFOCUS Active Dashboards can be distributed automatically to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Executives, operational managers, and other constituents inside and outside the enterprise, working online or offline, can access high-impact graphical dashboards via the Web; save them to their PC, laptop, or mobile device; receive them in e-mails; and forward them to colleagues. Key business processes can always be tracked and monitored no matter where a stakeholder is located.

Active Dashboards also support embedded analytics, combining data with interactive features that allow users to perform a variety of analytic functions such as sorting, filtering, calculating, and charting. This revolutionary technology is easy to use, empowering even non-technical workers to interact dynamically with charts and tables – even multiple graphs simultaneously – in ways that can’t be accomplished with traditional tools like Excel. Best of all, no special software is required and there are no per-user or per-seat licensing costs.

The hotel benchmarking application is a customer- facing BI solution from Travel and Transport that integrates WebFOCUS Google mapping to map a client’s hotel preferences (Figure K).

Customer-Facing and Self-Service Dashboards

Making BI applications available to users outside the organization, such as customers and business partners, customer-facing and self-service dashboards promote collaboration and save companies millions of dollars in support costs. These applications also boost profitability by opening up new revenue channels through the sale of value-added information services. WebFOCUS is the industry’s leading platform for outward-facing reporting and analysis environments.

Organizations in every industry use WebFOCUS to make vital corporate information available to tens or even hundreds of thousands of stakeholders outside the enterprise. Each day, WebFOCUS helps millions of external users around the world access account statements, invoices, and other reports via a Web site or in their e-mail inbox.

When powerful dashboard capabilities are used to enhance those customer-facing systems (for example, with embedded, user-friendly analytic capabilities), external users can fully leverage the power of BI without having to purchase licenses or install special software.

Location Intelligence and Geographic Information Systems

Location intelligence is a single application that integrates WebFOCUS and leading mapping solutions from ESRI, Google, and Adobe Flex. Combining the power of reporting and GIS, location intelligence lets users more intuitively process and comprehend spatially oriented data. This approach allows users to better visualize and understand information so they can more rapidly discern critical patterns and trends.

With little or no training, users can aggregate real-time information from disparate databases and spreadsheets, build individual ad hoc queries and formatted reports, and instantly transform the results into compelling geographic maps. The similarities and differences between objects in specific geographic locations, as well as the spatial relationships between dimensions with similar or outstanding values, will be instantly identifiable.

A universal metadata layer (Figure Q) and companion tools accelerate integration by making potential data sources look like simple relational tables. WebFOCUS provides end-to-end management of all metadata and master data (Figure R) as well as comprehensive data quality services (Figure S) to optimize accuracy, timeliness, and reliability.

Integration and Data Quality Management

A business intelligence dashboard is truly valuable only if the data is as complete and accurate as possible. WebFOCUS provides several styles of integration to support any type of dashboard deployment. A suite of pre-built integration components unifies information from more than 300 enterprise assets, while autonomic servers that are self-aware, self-healing, and self-optimizing effectively manage workload, traffic, and capacity – minimizing the impact on back-end systems, enhancing dashboard performance, and reducing total cost of ownership.

WebFOCUS also offers data quality management solutions for companies that need to create a data quality firewall, which not only locates and cleanses bad data that already exists, but also proactively prevents it from entering the environment in the first place. The integrity of the information contained in dashboards is guaranteed at all times.

With WebFOCUS, users can access their dashboards without having to wait for IT. Even those with little or no technical savvy can create their own dashboards and mashups. Intuitive drag- and-drop assembly allows reports, charts, and dashboards to be built quickly and easily using any content, inside or outside the enterprise.

WebFOCUS dashboards also include extensive end-user customization capabilities that allow pre-built information gadgets – containing charts, graphs, reports, and information utilities – to be rapidly assembled into interactive dashboards. Wikis, RSS feeds, and other Web 2.0 components can also be incorporated. These dashboards can then be used to drill through to detailed metric information or to change gadget preferences – without IT assistance.
