The next step in the roadmap to a successful WebFOCUS deployment is to map requirements to a WebFOCUS solution. In the context of this document, a solution refers to the WebFOCUS components that are suited to the business requirements and how they will be used. Depending on requirements and licensing, solutions can include a subset of WebFOCUS components or all WebFOCUS components.
WebFOCUS solutions can be implemented by the customer or Information Builders Professional Services, or using a blended approach.
To support the WebFOCUS solution, the next step is to define the infrastructure key building blocks that support the business solution and its resulting architecture. They are used to gauge operational readiness.
